WEST HAM striker Maxwel Cornet left his team-mates in stitches after being chased by a big dog.
Hammers keeper Lukasz Fabianski was filming the players in the car park of their Rush Green training ground when the hilarious incident occurred.
Several members of the West Ham squad – including England star Declan Rice – were seen getting stuff out of a car as they stood next to the huge dog.
Meanwhile, Cornet tentatively remained 10 yards or so away from the rest of the group.
Slowly, the dog began picking up speed and ended up furiously chasing the former Burnley man towards the door of the training ground.
Fortunately for Cornet, who has spent five months of the season sidelined through injury, the pet eventually left him alone.

But that did not stop his West Ham pals from bursting into fits of laughter throughout.
And Rice could be heard cackling at the brilliant moment.
Sharing the clip on social media, Fabianski said: "Cornet getting chased by a dog outside Rush Green 😭😭."
He then went on to add: "I literally can’t stop watching it, Declan’s laugh is killing me 😂😂."

When asked about the breed of the dog, Fabianski said: "God knows. "I think it’s [Alphonse] Areola’s dog, I’ve seen him with something similar before. It’s a security breed 🤷♀️."
Reacting to the video, one person said: "Good to see Cornet working on his fitness 🤣."
Another added: "Watching that you can tell he's definitely over his injury 🤣🤣👍."
And a third replied: "Quickest I’ve seen him run. Can they let it see [David] Moyes next please."
Cornet is yet to score in 14 appearances for West Ham, but has provided five assists.
Moyes' men picked up a huge 1-0 win away at Fulham on Saturday to move them up to 14th in the Premier League, three points adrift of the relegation zone.
Next up for West Ham in the league is a home game against table toppers Arsenal on Sunday.
But before then they travel to Belgian side Gent in the first leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final on Thursday.
