Three West Ham fans arrested for assault, racial abuse and a public order offence, following 2-0 win at home to Watford on Saturday

THREE West Ham fans were arrested on Saturday, following the 2-0 win at home to Watford.

The supporters were held in custody by police for three separate incidents: assault on a steward, racial abuse and a public order offence.

The Metropolitan Police Football Unit took to Twitter to reveal the news in aftermath of the Hammers' key victory.

The tweet read: "Great home win for @WestHamUtd.

"Unfortunately 3 West Ham supporters arrested 1 for public order offence, 1 for assault on a steward and 1 for assault on a steward and racial abuse all currently waiting to be dealt with in custody."

Earlier in the day, West Ham drew level on points in the Premier League with Watford after a massive 2-0 win, thanks to silver-haired golden boy Marko Arnautovic.

The Austrian forward's snazzy new look lit up the London Stadium as they ended a run of five games without a win.

Arnautovic provided the finishing touch with the second goal 12 minutes from time which sealed victory but he also provided the Midas touch with a man of the match performance.
