Don’t you just hate it when your team loses because of your own goal? Well, you will have to double that feeling for James Chester as his extremely peculiar own goal led to Hull City’s defeat at Upton Park.

A harmless cross by West Ham’s Guy Demel found the 25-year-old centre-back who was presumably trying to clear it. Unfortunately for him, the ball went straight to Steve Harper’s net and put a very mediocre Hammers’ side on the lead. On his defense though, the finish was quite spectacular.

Looks like someone has sent Vincent Kompany running for his money.
