Hear one supporter’s account of another troublesome night at the London Stadium. West Ham beat Chelsea 2-1 in the fourth round of the EFL Cup but the victory was marred by crowd trouble.
Ian, a Chelsea supporter who was caught up in the trouble said: “It was like being back in the 1970s. The amount of coins that were thrown, seats that were thrown, it was an absolute nightmare.”
But Ian did admit that there were some people in the ground actively looking for trouble, adding: “I think there were people there who were on the lookout for trouble. If trouble was going to be there, they wanted to be at the front of it.”
