KALVIN PHILLIPS has made a horror start to his West Ham debut after gifting Bournemouth the lead.

The midfielder signed on loan from Manchester City earlier this month.

David Moyes handed him his debut from the start in their draw with the Cherries on Thursday.

However, Phillips made a costly error just three minutes into the match as his back pass was intercepted by Dominic Solanke.

The Bournemouth forward then made no mistake to put the visitors in front.

Phillips’ costly error came from just his second touch of the match.

Fans were quick to react on social media, as one wrote: “Poor old Phillips.”

Another jokingly commented: “Great assist.”

However, others were quick to point to Kurt Zouma’s pass into Phillips as the cause of the error.

A third supporter added: “Think Zouma more to blame.”

Meanwhile, one more agreed, writing: “You can’t blame him for that.”

Fortunately for the Hammers, James Ward-Prowse second half penalty rescued a point for the hosts.

Phillips completed his loan move away from City last week after struggling to break into Pep Guardiola’s side.

He made just six starts for the Treble winners and had been restricted to 89 minutes of Prem action this season before tonight’s match.

The 28-year-old is hoping to cement his place in Gareth Southgate’s Euros squad with regular action for the Hammers.
