Hammers stars appear to have taken Monday’s setback on the chin.
James Collins’ late strike looked to have secured West Ham United a point in Monday’s Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge.
However, an ever later effort from Diego Costa, who many felt should not have been on the pitch at the time, consigned Slaven Bilic’s side to defeat.
Chelsea had earlier gone in front courtesy of Eden Hazard’s penalty, which proceeded a calamitous few seconds for Michail Antonio, who lost possession before bundling down Cesar Azpilicueta in the box.
Despite the winger’s misfortune, it was the continued presence and subsequent impact of Costa which most riled the West Ham supporters.
Having already accrued a yellow card for dissent, the Spaniard was lucky to stay on after clattering Hammers goalkeeper Adrian high on then shin.
However, Bilic’s men were seemingly quick to move on from their setback on the opening weekend, with most of those on Twitter spouting a similar message.
