As Hull tried to scramble it clear the Chilean striker bundled the ball home from close range, but he inadvertently sent the ball over the line by pushing off his hand. Goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic cleared and it went straight in off Sanchez’s hand which was in a natural position.

Deliberate or not, it was definitely a handball and you would’ve understood if it was disallowed.

Take a look at the video clip below to see if Sanchez’s handball was deliberate and if you think the goal should have stood.
