The Hammers will be looking to build upon that result in this weekend’s difficult clash with Chelsea but fans had a week off to enjoy the European action on the screens, where one former player caught the eye.

Former West Ham midfielder Havard Nordtveit scored for Hoffenheim in their Champions League debut on Wednesday evening, where the Bundesliga side played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk.

West Ham fans had their say on Nordtveit’s goal and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
