Johannesburg [South Africa], Dec. 18 : Adjudging any player the Man of the Match is something which is normal. But what if we say that this time, it was a goalpost that bagged the award? But this did happen when West Ham fans, relieved by their team's 1-0 win over Hull City, named a goalpost as man of the match after the woodwork saved the Hammers three times.
The Slaven Bilic's side won the three points in the Premier League after a controversial Mark Noble penalty gave his side the much required victory over luckless Hull City at London Stadium on Saturday.
Such was the ill luck of Mike Phelan's side that they hit the woodwork on no less than three occasions from Andrew Robertson (twice) and Dieumerci Mbokani, reports Sport24.
"With 57 percent of the vote congratulations to The Post on securing today's Man of the Match award!" tweeted the official Twitter handle of West Ham after the results of their supporters' poll.
The goalpost defeated West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate (17 percent), striker Andy Carroll (14) and defender (12) in the vote.
