West Ham United couldn't get a result at Stamford Bridge this afternoon, losing 2-0 to an impressive Chelsea side.
Sam Allardyce has guided the Hammers to the top four this season, but today's defeat and Southampton's win over Crystal Palace means they now drop out of the Champions League places.
Goals from John Terry and Diego Costa handed Jose Mourinho's side all three points, with West Ham unable to continue their fine recent form.
West Ham fans were naturally disappointed on Twitter after the game, urging manager Allardyce to make changes to the line-up - particularly concerning Kevin Nolan.
The Hammers skipper struggled throughout, and West Ham fans were calling for the 32-year-old to be dropped from the starting line-up in favour of other, more mobile players.
Nolan was one of Allardyce's key players during their time together at Bolton, and has also been productive at Upton Park under 'Big Sam'.
Yet now, West Ham's squad means that there are better players available than Nolan, and it may be time for Nolan to be taken out of the side if Allardyce is to lead West Ham to European qualification.
Here are some of the reactions from West Ham fans on Twitter after Nolan's poor display against Chelsea.
Would be disappointed to see Nolan in the side against Arsenal! Great captain fantastic Goalscorer but offers little else! #WHUFC— Miller (@NicholasDMiller) December 26, 2014
Absolutely toothless! Nolan should not be anywhere near this starting line up! Such a poor performance! #COYI— Darren Hamez Youngs (@dazyoungs) December 26, 2014
Big Sam insistence on playing Nolan every week is his biggest failing!— Joe Ashley (@realjoeashley) December 26, 2014
What will it take for Sam to drop Nolan?, only thing that's letting him down right now, so much better than him now.— West Ham Agent (@kaz7289) December 26, 2014
Amalfitano, Song, & Zarate are all better options than Nolan at this point. It is time for Big Sam to accept the facts and leave Nolan out.— J. Daniel Ford (@jdanielford) December 26, 2014
