West Ham fans have reacted in disgust on Twitter after Sergio Aguero appeared to elbow Winston Reid.
The Hammers suffered a 3-1 away defeat at Man City which leaves them with just three points from their opening three games.
The incident between Reid and Aguero took place in the second half, and video footage appears to show Aguero clearly leading with an elbow.

Reid was subsequently forced from the pitch in the 78th minute and was replaced by summer signing Jonathan Calleri.
There have been calls for the Argentine to receive a ban for his action, with Robbie Savage saying on BBC Radio 5 Live that he would be fortunate to get away without further repercussions.
“He’ll be lucky if he gets away with it,” said Savage. “He could get a punishment.”
West Ham fans were understandably angered that Aguero wasn’t immediately punished for his actions, though most accepted they didn’t deserve to win.

How did Aguero stay on the pitch? Ref was poor, game lost first 20. Better 2nd half. Will Slav now get the 'Antonio' message.

Same old story. If's and buts regarding the officials. Aguero like Costa before should have gone. But no! Got what we deserved though.
