WEST HAM fans fumed after spotting what Alexander Isak did before scoring his second goal on Sunday.
Isak's strike looked to be the winner for Newcastle until Mohammed Kudus netted a dramatic 89th-minute equaliser.
But replays on Match Of The Day highlighted a push from Isak on Nayef Aguerd before the Newcastle man tapped the ball in.
One West Ham fan tweeted: "And how isn’t this a foul…? Aguerd clearly gets pushed in the back by Isak for the goal. Another p**s poor decision yesterday ffs."
Another wrote: "I thought this was poor defending from Aguerd at the time, but now seeing this it's hard to blame him.
"Isak has pushed him out the way with both hands, according to the rule book now that's a foul."

And a third wrote: "There is a clear foul there, Isak on Aguerd for Newcastle’s second goal, why didn’t VAR pick that up, a clear shove with both hands."
But not everyone was convinced that the contact was significant enough to be called as a foul, particularly with the supposed high bar VAR has for intervening in goals scored.
One fan wrote: "Isak might have made contact with Aguerd’s back but it’s not enough for it to be ruled out whatsoever."
And a West Ham fan replied to the tweet saying: "Poor defending yet again from Aguerd" alongside a nonplussed shrugging emoji.
