After West Ham United maintained their unbeaten run with a nervy 2-1 victory over Aston Villa at the London Stadium on Monday night (BBC), plenty of supporters weren’t impressed with star opposition playmaker Jack Grealish – going on to blast the England man for his apparent diving.
David Moyes’ side fought hard for the three points, coming after defender Angelo Ogbonna rose highest to nod in the opening goal early on with Grealish equalising soon after courtesy of a stunning deflected effort into the top corner.
Who was West Ham's man of the match against Aston Villa?
West Ham then made a half time change, which paid dividends as summer signing Said Benrahma assisted fellow 2020 acquisition Jarrod Bowen for the eventual winning goal.
The Hammers had to cling on for all three points, with Ollie Watkins missing a penalty and having a goal ruled out for VAR – but despite all the talking points, these supporters in particular were left furious with Grealish for his diving over the 90 minutes.
Some supporters even blasted Grealish as a ‘massive clown’, find out all of their verdicts down below.

Instead of a yellow they should have given him a whistle and let him be ref. That was atrocious. ⚒️⚒️⚒️
