West Ham poke fun at Lyon's Moussa Dembele over first-leg antics


The social media team at West Ham United have taken full advantage of their side's win over Olympique Lyonnais on Thursday, to poke fun at a key member of the French outfit's squad.

The player in question? Moussa Dembele.

Hitman Dembele of course established himself as public enemy no.1 amongst the Hammers faithful this day last week.

This came when, during the Europa League quarter-final first-leg clash between the clubs, the former Celtic man secured a free-kick for his side which many viewed as soft at best, ultimately culminating in Aaron Cresswell being given his marching orders.

Not only that, but Dembele was then caught winking by TV cameras covering the fixture, further infuriating those of a West Ham persuasion.

As alluded to above, though, this evening, the Irons have had the last laugh.

After emerging victorious from their return leg meeting with Lyon, the London club's social media admins took to Twitter, to post the following lighthearted dig at Dembele:

Bowen amongst the goals

Turning attentions back towards the action at the Groupama Stadium itself on Thursday, a wonderful team display on the part of David Moyes' visitors saw goals on the part of all of Craig Dawson, Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen guide West Ham to the right side of a historic 3-0 result.

The Irons, in turn, have booked their spot in the semi-finals of the Europa League for the first time ever, where they are set to go head to head with Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt, who themselves shocked the masses this evening in sending Barcelona packing from the competition.
