Russell Brand gatecrashes Sam Allardyce interview after West Ham win

West Ham rounded off a miserable week for Manchester City by claiming a wonderful 2-1 over the reigning Premier League champions at Upton Park today.

City needed a win after only drawing against CSKA Moscow in mid-week, and with Chelsea going up against Manchester United there was a chance for Manuel Pellegrini's side to make up ground on the league leaders.

However it didn't go exactly to plan. A rampant West Ham continued their recent good form and bagged a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho who found the back of the net for the sixth straight game. David Silva pulled one back but it wasn't enough as City stumbled once more.

Manchester City should have known they were in for a long day from the off when things went awry for Joe Hart during the customary pre-match rituals. England's number one was shown up by a pesky mascot, who got him with the ol' thumb-nose switcheroo.

It wasn't all plain-sailing for West Ham however - they tried to to create their usual, erm, *intimidating* atmosphere via a bubble machine which frankly didn't so much as release bubbles as it did a heavy cloud of smoke.

After the game there was plenty of jubilation around West Ham, and that spilled over into Sam Allardyce's post-match interview. While Big Sam was in the midst of offering his thoughts, none other than comedian and activist Russell Brand - a big West Ham fan - crashed the interview and offered the Hammers boss a big sloppy kiss.

Perhaps they should get a room - although it's difficult to guess who would come off worse if they did.
