Spectators clash over Ayoze Pérez’s red card at Leicester vs West Ham

Spectators clash over Ayoze Pérez's red card at Leicester vs West Ham

Spectators of the meeting between West Ham United and Leicester City have taken to social media in numbers tonight to discuss the red card given to Ayoze Pérez.

Fornals on target

Of course, the Hammers and Foxes are currently locked in Premier League action at London Stadium.

The clash marks a highly anticipated one as the two teams have been separated by just one point in the English top flight table last season, en route to their respective Europa League spots.

However, as things are in the capital, it is the hosts who have the advantage.

The score for the night opened within the half hour mark, when a West Ham break culminated in Said Benrahma’s setback being scored home by Pablo Fornals:

The Fornals strike, in turn, is the difference between the sides in the interval.

Pérez sparks debate

However, as described above, Leicester, in addition to being behind by a goal to nil, has also taken a hit on the personnel front tonight.

This comes with Ayoze Pérez who was sent to a bathroom early, at the end of the first half.

After losing control of the ball due to pressure inside his own field, the Foxes attacker, in his attempts to maintain possession, directed a nasty blow to the leg of striker Fornals.

A lengthy VAR review, in turn, ultimately culminated in referee Michael Oliver making the understandable decision that Pérez should be sent his way:

However, the call has sparked widespread debate on social media.

While most seem to be of the opinion that Oliver had no choice but to cut Leicester down to 10 men, others have argued that Perez found it difficult as he simply tried to use his left leg to protect the ball:
