West Ham players react to Chelsea draw on social media, Angelo Ogbonna says they were tricked

The Italian was not happy with the officiating at Stamford Bridge, whilst Manuel Lanzini got praise from a team-mate.

West Ham United drew 2-2 with Chelsea yesterday - but it was a game the Hammers deserved to win at Stamford Bridge.

They twice took the lead through Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll but two controversial goals from Chelsea meant the points were shared.

The first goal came from a Cesc Fabregas free-kick. But the Spaniard had cleverly bought himself an extra two yards distance from the wall, which only Angelo Ogbonna seemed to pick up on.

The second goal came after Michail Antonio tripped Ruben Loftus-Cheek and a penalty was awarded. However, the foul was outside the box and it should have been a free-kick.

So after the game it was the Italian defender who seemed most perturbed at the result on Twitter:

Plenty of other West Ham players have also been expressing their views on the game through Twitter. 

Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate, who signed a new contract at West Ham this week, took to Twitter to congratulate one of the goalscorers on his performance. He had this message for Manuel Lanzini:


Lanzini himself took to Instagram. He had this message after the game:


West Ham players will now hope these two dropped points don't come back to haunt them at the end of the season.
