Hernandez handball and Diop header piles more misery on Ranieri’s men


FULHAM edged closer to the drop after a Javier Hernandez handball and Issa Diop header sealed West Ham’s comeback.

Ryan Babel opened the scoring early on before Hernandez used his arm from close range to bag the equaliser after 30 minutes.

Despite a lack of appeals from the away side, Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri was incensed on the touchline and made his thoughts clear to the fourth official.

Question marks would be raised over Rico’s goalkeeping when Diop headed home on 40 minutes before Michail Antonio made sure of the three points at the death.
