West Ham’s difficult run to the season continued at the weekend with a 1-1 draw against Leicester City, a match which was overshadowed by the shocking post-match scenes at the King Power Stadium.

Sunday’s Premier League fixtures went ahead with a dark cloud hovering over the games as supporters awaited further news from Leicester and Hammers supporters on social media were left furious with one incident in the London derby between Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

The score finished level at 2-2 after the fightback from the hosts, who fell behind after Arsenal’s quickfire double at the start of the second half, after Wilfried Zaha won his side a penalty.

Zaha’s dramatic tumble was heavily scrutinised on social media and Hammers fans were quick to compare the incident to Manuel Lanzini’s dive against Stoke last season, which earned the playmaker a two-match ban.

Supporters are now eagerly waiting to see if Zaha will earn the same punishment as they feel the two incidents were identical, although many were not confident the FA will take action.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

  • Zaha has to be the worse cheating diver in the epl! Has been getting away with it for years! So why would the fa take action now?!?!
