West Ham fans have reacted with mixed views on Twitter to the violence that marred their 2-1 win over Chelsea at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

Supporters were pictured clashing in the stands as the Hammers recorded a famous win over their London rivals in the EFL Cup.

The result on the pitch meant that Slaven Bilic’s side progressed through to the quarter-final stage of the competition, where they will meet Manchester United at Old Trafford.

However, some fans felt that a minority of West Ham and Chelsea supporters will make the headlines for the wrong reasons.

But others were of the opinion that the media should not talk about the minority off the pitch, instead they should focus on the fantastic performance by the Irons against their local rivals.

Additionally, one supporter called for owner David Gold to segregate the home fans from the away supporters to stop the violence.

The Irons, who moved into the London Stadium this season, have had trouble settling down to their new surroundings, with numerous problems on and off the pitch.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
