Piers Morgan has questioned West Ham and Chelsea supporters after crowd troubled marred their EFL Cup tie at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Hammers beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1, with Cheikhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandez scoring for the hosts and Gary Cahill netting a late consolation for the visitors.
However, ugly scenes off the pitch, and in the stands have grabbed the headlines, with home and away supporters reportedly chucking plastic bottles, chairs and coins at one another.
Arsenal fan and broadcaster Morgan was extremely critical of both sets of supporters, as he posed this question on his personal Twitter account:
I wonder how many of the West Ham & Chelsea hooligans currently brawling tonight demand we keep 'violent foreigners' out of our country?

On the pitch Slaven Bilic’s side will now take on fellow Premier League rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford in the quarter-final stage of the EFL Cup.
But before that they travel to Everton on Sunday afternoon for a tough away fixture, as the Irons look to secure their fourth win on the bounce.
They are currently 15th in the league table with ten points from nine games, despite being in the relegation zone after six fixtures.
