United picked up a 2-1 win over the Hammers at Old Trafford, but the score wasn't the only talking point after the match, as a rubber sex toy was discovered in the dugout after the game by Press Association journalist Simon Peach.
It is believed the sex toy was thrown into the dugout by Hammers fans as part of a long-standing joke about their owners, David Sullivan and David Gold.
The two owners made vast sums of money earlier in their careers in the adult industry. Gold bought the Ann Summers brand and transformed its fortunes into a recognized high-street outlet, while Sullivan was a successful figure in the production of adult-themed magazines, including pornographic material.
The Hammers' owners' pasts led to them being labeled 'The Dildo Brothers' by the Hammers fans.
It is unclear how a West Ham fan managed to get the item all the way from the away end into the dugout area, with one West Ham journalist commenting it was "Very much standard for a West Ham away day," and that he was "Impressed it made it that far."
