Andre Ayew’s Unforgivable Miss Against Liverpool Surely A Contender For “Miss Of The Season”

Andre Ayew hit the post from point-blank range twice in a matter of moments during West Ham’s clash with Liverpool, a miss Graeme Souness described as one of the worst of the season.

The ball fell to the Ghana striker inside the six-yard box after Liverpool failed to deal with a Manuel Lanzini corner.

With the goal gaping, the forward controlled the ball and turned it towards goal from around two yards out. Incredibly the ball came back off the right-hand post and back into Ayew’s path.

Having fallen over during his first attempt at goal, the striker then poked the ball home from a sitting position. Again the ball came back off the post. This time, however, it rebounded into the arms of a thankful Simon Mignolet.

The miss ensured West Ham went in at half-time of the Premier League clash trailing 1-0 after Daniel Sturridge put Liverpool into the lead midway through the first half.
