It was a difficult night for West Ham United in the Carabao Cup at the London Stadium where they were beaten 3-1 by rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

On the field, they made more chances and had as much possession as their opponents but couldn’t convert and the more clinical Spurs side made them pay.

Lucas Perez’s strike in the 71st minute gave Hammers fans hope after Son Heung-min had put Spurs 2-0 up.

However, a rare Fernando Llorente goal just four minutes later put Tottenham back in front and West Ham were unable to respond.

Their inability to make the most of the chances they made cost them dear and the club’s night was not helped by other incidents inside the stadium.

Twice, fans made their way from the stands onto the pitch delaying play while others stand accused of racist chanting towards Son.

It might have been a night to forget for West Ham, but fans still took to social media to give their views on the match.

And they did not hold back, with their players as well as stewards and the referee coming in for criticism.

One player in particular who was roundly castigated for his efforts was Brazil international Felipe Anderson.

The 25-year-old winger was substituted at half-time and although manager Manuel Pellegrini explained afterwards that this was a planned move, fans were not impressed.

Anderson’s poor performance was highlighted by the fact that Robert Snodgrass, his replacement, was, for many Hammers fans, one of the few players to have played well.

The Brazilian cost West Ham a record £40 million from from Lazio in the summer and many West Ham supporters would argue he still has a long way to go before he starts justifying that hefty price tag.

Here is a selection of those tweets from unhappy West Ham fans.
