When West Ham were 2-0 down to Tottenham after just 37 minutes of the Carabao Cup clash, Slaven Bilic was probably thinking out his goodbye message to the fans.

The Hammers have endured a torrid start to the season and against a Spurs side that had freshly thumped Liverpool 4-1, few gave the team and Bilic's job a chance.

However, what ever the Croatian told his players in the dressing room worked absolute miracles. The visitors appeared from the Wembley tunnel a completely different side and immediately took the game to their high-flying opponents.

Andre Ayew stabbed home in the 55th minute to give West Ham some unexpected hope, before remarkably levelling the game just moments later.

Most fans would have expected Tottenham to rally at this point but it was the Hammers maintaining the momentum, eventually being rewarded for their efforts with 20 minutes to go.

Angelo Ogbonna headed past Michel Vorm for just his second goal for the club to give West Ham a memorable win in north London.

Although it's only the Carabao Cup, the nature of the win and the club's form going into the game invited an explosion of joy and relief at full-time.

As a result, the ever passionate captain Mark Noble decided to make the trip to the travelling West Ham fans to handover his shirt.

The decision came in a week where Pape Souare made the thoroughly bizarre decision to throw his jersey into the crowd fresh after a 4-1 bludgeoning by Bristol City. The 27-year-old was swiftly humiliated as the top was chucked straight back to him.

You won't be surprised to hear that Noble experienced a different outcome but his brilliant act still managed to cause carnage amongst the rabble.

One adult West Ham fan leaned to his right-hand side to grab the shirt himself, ahead of a younger supporter and let's just say he was handed a little taste of karma. Check it out:

It looked quite the tumble, too, with the moment of schadenfreude amplified by the Sky commentary of 'he's gone.'

As a few Twitter users have pointed out, the falling supporter actually managed to lose the shirt as he flopped and has gone viral for his moment of embarrassment.
