West Ham United were unable to continue their winning run in the Europa League as Genk held them to a 2-2 draw on Thursday night.
David Moyes’ 1000th game as a manager did not start well as the hosts opened the scoring four minutes into the game, holding on to their lead into the break.
Said Benrahma drew West Ham level briefly after play restarted and put them ahead with eight minutes left on the clock.
However, an own goal from Tomas Soucek in the 87th minute ruined the party for the visitors, and it appears things went out of hand in the stands.
According to Football.London journalist Thomas Clark, some Hammers supporters were ejected from the stadium after clashing with the home fans.
He provided the information on his personal Twitter account prior to the final whistle.
Clark wrote: “West Ham fans in the home end being escorted out after a little coming together with the stewards and a few Genk fans.”

West Ham were very poor in the opening 45 minutes and should have found themselves three or four goals down.
However, Genk failed to convert their chances, and the draw would have felt like a defeat.
It was a better performance from the Irons in the second-half, but their disappointing first-half proved costly in the end.
While they have picked up 10 points in four games, they are still not guaranteed to finish as leaders of Group H, and they need to pick up one more win to ensure that.
Some of their fans also appeared to have had too much to drink, and they had to be thrown out of the stadium.
It definitely was not a good night for Moyes, his players and those erring supporters.
It was not particularly bad either as they left with one important point.
