West Ham United fans give up on Ogbonna following EFL Cup display against Tottenham Hotspur

The EFL Cup gives Premier League clubs the opportunity to rest some key players due to the fact that the competition is not high on the priority list.

On Wednesday night, Manuel Pellegrini made a few changes to his West Ham United team for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur to the London Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino also tinkered with his team, and the inclusion of Son Heung-min paid off as he scored twice to help Spurs earn a 3-1 win and place in the quarter-finals.

West Ham fans were frustrated with a number of their players after the final whistle, and Angelo Ogbonna was one of them.

The 30-year-old partnered Issa Diop at the heart of defence, but he struggled to impress.

The Italian started the first two Premier League games of the season, but for the majority of the time since then he has either been left out of the squad entirely or warming a spot on the bench.

Judging by the reaction to his display on Wednesday night, not many fans want to see him back in the team.
