Video: West Ham and Chelsea fans clash inside London Stadium
There were disturbing scenes at London Stadium tonight as West Ham and Chelsea fans clashed near the end of tonight’s EFL Cup tie.
Videos posted to social media show stewards trying to keep the two sets of supporters apart after reports of chairs and bottles being thrown.
Skirmishes broke out towards the end of the Hammers’ impressive 2-1 fourth-round win as police and stewards battled to maintain segregation behind the goal being defended by West Ham.
This derby was billed as the biggest footballing test for the London Stadium so far, on a night when basketball and track cycling competitions were also taking place on the former Olympic Park.
