Kalvin Phillips gives away goal on his West Ham debut, it was his first touch

Kalvin Phillips gives away goal on his West Ham debut, it was his first touch

Nightmare start for Kalvin Phillips at West Ham United.

Kalvin Phillips has got off to a nightmare West Ham United debut after giving away a goal with his first touch against Bournemouth.

Phillips made his first start in the Premier League since May 2023 following his loan move from Manchester City.

But he has made a horrendous start to life at West Ham as he gifted Dominic Solanke the opening goal within the first three minutes of the game.

Kurt Zouma played a pass into the England international, who was immediately closed down.

The ball then landed to Solanke who finished tidily inside the box.

Fans online were unforgiving as they made their feelings clear about Phillips' involvement in Bournemouth's goal.

One X user joked: "An assist with his first touch for Kalvin Phillips. Electric start to his West Ham career!"

A second tweeted: "Kalvin Phillips ALREADY stinking it up."

A third added: "Kalvin Phillips on for a Jonathan Woodgate-esque debut here. Already given away a goal."

A fourth wrote: "Only took 2mins of his debut for Kalvin Phillips to be absolutely shocking."

Another commented: "Oh mate you’ve gotta feel sorry for Kalvin Phillips."

Phillips has played just 10 games in all competitions this season, having featured in 12 league games last season following his £45 million transfer from Leeds United.

He'll be hoping to rediscover his form at West Ham, who have no option to buy the player on a permanent deal.
