But replays have suggested Craig Dawson might have made a block on the line with his arm that kept the effort out.
When asked about that incident at his press conference yestrrday, Ancelotti said: “He [King] scored a goal and I'm really surprised that nobody knows this.
“I'm really surprised about myself, because I didn't see the handball, but above all the VAR (Darren England). I think the VAR was not there at the stadium.
“At the end of the day we won, but imagine if West Ham had equalised at the last minute after that mistake?
“It was a big, a huge mistake. It cannot happen with VAR. It cannot happen. Nobody said nothing to us, apologise, 'Sorry'. It was enough to say, 'Sorry, we did a mistake'."
