Protests, pitch invasions as West Ham fans' anger boils over

  • West Ham might have to play in empty stadium after fan trouble

As the English Football Association investigates the unrest, the Premier League separately said it would be contacting West Ham to seek assurances that the disorder would not be repeated at future matches.

The game was halted as stewards and police dealt with the situation, while West Ham players also helped get the invaders off the field, with Noble spotted throwing one to the ground.

The beleaguered Scotsman was clearly shaken by the series of events that came hand-in-hand with another second-half capitulation as visitors Burnley eased to a 3-0 Premier League victory at the London Stadium.

The first pitch invasion came moments after Ashley Barnes gave Burnley the lead in the 66th minute.

The club issued a statement immediately after this latest fiasco, reading: 'West Ham United have immediately launched a full and thorough investigation into the incidents which marred the second half of today's match and are committed to taking decisive and appropriate action.

David Moyes has called on West Ham fans to unite and get behind their team after protests against the board erupted during their defeat to Burnley.

"Actually the big thing was to say get on with it - keep playing".

"Saturday is the first of those games, the players know exactly what's required of them and what they need to do". "But for the time I've been here, I've certainly enjoyed it". Having tried to play a 3-4-3 formation in recent games, Moyes is expected to stick with this tactic but should see Antonio return to the side and may prefer to play Marko Arnautović at the tip of attack to provide more presence than Javier Hernández who finds himself too isolated in this formation.

Butland has yet to play a minute at a major tournament, although Stoke boss Paul Lambert has labelled him the "best goalkeeper in Britain". Sean Dyche has now guided his side to the fabled and of 40 points and will look to build on the confidence which returned to his players throughout last Saturday afternoon. The players know we did well today for long periods. We needed the supporters with us in a different way. "We were fine, they were just voicing their frustration".

"If I thought there were no mistakes or no problems I wouldn't have made any changes". "It does make the atmosphere really tough to play in".
