FANS were left baffled during Arsenal’s victory over Leicester… as BT Sport started pumping in West Ham chants.
With the away side in firm control during the second half, viewers may have expected to hear a round or two of ‘Ooh to be a Gooner’.

But they didn’t even muster a drone of ‘Arsenal, Arsenal’.
Instead, fans were treated to a round of the famous West Ham anthem ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’.
The tune has been a Hammers song for decades, and may well have been appropriate when Michail Antonio equalised against Manchester City yesterday on BT.
But its appearance during today’s King Power Stadium coverage was bizarre.
The sound operator also managed to fit in another Hammers chant, ‘My Name Is Ludo Miklosko’, after their popular nineties goalkeeper.
And fans on social media were quick to notice.
One wrote: “Whoever is doing the crowd noise for BT for the Arsenal Leicester game is defo a West Ham fan playing bubbles and our song for Ludo”.
While another joked: “BT Sport producer playing West Ham away fan noise as can’t find anything in the Arsenal archives! Just heard Bubbles…”

And a third quipped: “Great win and a special mention to BT sport for the West Ham soundtrack in the second half. Elite coverage”.
Arsenal capped off a great week of comebacks by overcoming the Foxes from a goal down in the East Midlands.
Youri Tielemans had given Leicester an early lead, before goals from David Luiz, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe saw Arsenal grab all three points.
