West Ham are set to issue a lifetime ban to a fan that threw a coffee cup at Troy Deeney during the club's 2-0 defeat to Watford on Saturday.
Deeney fired home a first-half penalty to give the Hornets the lead before celebrating in front of the home fans, enraging one supporter enough to throw a coffee cup towards him. In response, West Ham have issued a statement which outlines their 'zero tolerance approach' to the situation.
The club statement (via Evening Standard) informed the public the culprit had been identified and warned supporters that anyone involved in similar incidents will be reported to the police.
The statement read:
"In line with our zero tolerance approach, anyone identified will have their details passed to the police and will face a lifetime ban from London Stadium.
An FA spokesperson also stated: "The referee Lee Mason has reported the incident and we will be looking into it."
