West Ham striker Andy Carroll was allegedly involved in a row with a "drunk Chelsea fan" at a trendy Japanese restaurant in Canary Wharf, London, on Sunday evening.

The 26-year-old scored a brilliant header to hand the Hammers a 2-1 win at Upton Park.

On Sunday night the former England striker was dining with friends at Roka when a row ensued during which his security guards had to intervene.




Some reports suggest that wine was thrown, based on a Tweet by onlooker Paige Waller - although she later cleared up that her words were not to be taken literally.

An unnamed onlooker told The Sun: “A man, who was in a group of Chelsea fans, tried to go up and kiss him, which led to a skirmish.

“Carroll hadn’t even had food or a drink at that point when the hammered geezer started giving him s***.”

An anonymous member of staff also spoke to the paper, confirming the incident.

"It happened between 5pm and 5.30pm as they were sitting down to eat," they said. "His personal security guards broke up the fight."

Police did not have to be called to the scene.
