David Moyes handed him his debut from the start against 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 as he put the visitors into the lead.

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.”

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 league action this season before tonight’s match.

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