However, two terrific second-half goals from Pascal Gross and Jose Izquierdo condemned what has been a awful week for West Ham after Tony Henry revealed he wanted to restrict the number of African players the club signed.

The club said its director of player recruitment had been dismissed with immediate effect over the "unacceptable comments" after he was suspended on Thursday.

"If I look at the record over the last seven or eight weeks you'll see we've lost a game for the first time in five or six weeks", he added.

Henry reportedly denied he was being discriminatory and highlighted Senegal's Cheikhou Kouyate as "a great player for us".
