It wasn't just Chelsea's coaching staff and players showing a distinct lack of class on Saturday, according to a story in the tabloids this morning.

Andy Carroll, who went straight to Canary Wharf after the game in order to celebrate West Ham's win was accosted by a group of drunk Chelsea supporters at the Roka restaurant shortly after arriving.

Eye-witness Paige Waller, who was in the popular eating venue said: "Andy Carroll and a random drunk man just had a huge row in Roka. Made my day. So dramatic; red wine was flying everywhere."

Meanwhile another individual who claimed to be present at the time told The Sun: "A man, who was in a group of Chelsea fans, tried to go up and kiss him which led to a skirmish. Carroll hadn't even had food or a drink at that point when the hammered geezer started giving him shit."

Carroll scored West Ham's winning goal just ten minutes after being introduced as a replacement for Mauro Zarate, who had given the Irons a first half lead that was subsequently cancelled out by Gary Cahill.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic insisted after the game that the number nine should be seriously considered for a recall by England manager Roy Hodgson, who was present at Saturday's match.

"Andy is a big player for us, and also for England," he said during his post-match press conference. "He gives us a lot of options. He is a great player, his quality has never been in doubt. We just needed to get him fit.

"Now we are in a really good situation with that and he should be fit long-term. West Ham - and possibly England - should benefit."
