Doucoure hands it to Wolves

Sport360 - - Premier League - By Staff Re­porter @Sport360 ed­i­to­

Wat­ford snatched a 2-2 draw against Southamp­ton at Vicarage Road with a con­tro­ver­sial late goal from Ab­doulaye Doucoure, which looked to have been hand­ball.

Mid­fielder James Ward-Prowse put the vis­it­ing Saints ahead and added a sec­ond just be­fore half­time. Striker An­dre Gray then re­duced the deficit on 58 min­utes with a close-range header af­ter Daryl Jan­maat’s ef­fort hit the bar.

With 90 min­utes on the clock, French mid­fielder Doucoure stooped to bun­dle the ball in – but ap­peared to have used his hand.

Mean­while, West Ham romped to a 4-1 vic­tory at Hud­der­s­field to give man­ager David Moyes his 200th Premier League win.

Irons cap­tain Mark No­ble broke the dead­lock on 25 min­utes when he cap­i­talised on some way­ward de­fend­ing by Joe Lol­ley. But the Hud­der­s­field man then made amends with a curled solo ef­fort.

The Ham­mers were un­daunted and roared back ahead, Ar­gen­tine play­maker Manuel dou­bling up af­ter Mark Ar­nau­tovic’s tap-in.

Crys­tal Palace con­tin­ued their im­prove­ment un­der Roy Hodg­son af­ter a 1-0 win over Burn­ley at Sel­hurst Park, se­cured with a goal from mid­fielder Bakary Sako on 21 min­utes.

New­cas­tle, though, had to set­tle for a 1-1 draw against bot­tom club Swansea at St James’ Park.

Jor­dan Ayew headed the Swans ahead, only for sub­sti­tute Joselu to level.

West Brom beat Brighton 2-0 at The Hawthorns for a first Premier League win since Au­gust 19.

Help­ing hand: Doucoure (r).
