Manchester United chief Ed Woodward was caught on camera during Sunday’s game.
United were beaten convincingly at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell sealed the three points for the hosts in a convincing win.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side put in a terrible performance as the pressure continues to pile on the Norwegian.
Since taking the job full-time, Solskjaer has seen his side beaten seven times in 15 Premier League matches.

And with some fans already turning on the manager, Woodward appeared to show his own frustrations in the stands on Sunday.
The chief executive was filmed turning around and snapping at Phil Jones, who was left out of the team due to injury.
Initial reports on Twitter claimed that Jones had made a joke about Solskjaer being sacked, with Woodward replying ‘We’re on camera, stop.”
However, other angles have suggested that Jones said nothing of the sort, and that Woodward was in fact saying something to a female club official sat next to the injured defender.

Solskjaer has won just five games since being given the job on a permanent basis, losing ten of 19 in all competitions.
And speaking after the game, former midfielder Roy Keane said he was “saddened” to see the state the club is currently in.
“I don’t know where to try, I know they weren’t in a great place but I am shocked and saddened by how bad they are,” he said.
“You can lose a game of football but everything about United was lacklustre.
“No quality. A lack of desire. A lack of leaders. A lack of characters. It is a long way back and it is scary just how far they have fallen.”
United face a tough task next week as they face Arsenal at Old Trafford.
