West Ham’s farewell to Upton Park and remarkable comeback against Manchester United has been tarnished after home fans attacked team bus.

In what has been an emotional week for Hammers fans after 112 years at Upton Park. The last thing we expected was too see fans rewinding the clock to the 80’s and attack the United team bus.

Today’s events will be investigated by the Football Association after a decision was made to open the turnstiles late, which caused an overcrowding of fans.

Despite the pre game drama, it was always going to be West Ham’s party, and they delivered to the fans in style.

The Hammer’s produced a brilliant turnaround, after Anthony Martial’s quick-fire double sent Manchester up 2-1.

West Ham hit back with a spark of their own, scoring two goals in the last 15 minutes from Michail Antonio and Winston Reid.

 

There is no doubt that the electric atmosphere from home fans played a major apart in West Ham’s revival.

The win places West Ham one point behind fifth place Man United, and prevents Louis van Gaal’s men from taking the front seat in the race to Champions League qualification.
