West Ham face probe after fans mar Burnley loss


West Ham's James Collins was confronted by protesting pitch invaders in the defeat to Burnley

Burnley manager Sean Dyche did not feel his players were in danger after West Ham fans invaded the London Stadium pitch during his side’s 3-0 Premier League win.

West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan were forced to leave their seats for their own safety after being confronted by angry fans on an afternoon of shame at the London Stadium.

West Ham’s day of shame was sparked after Ashley Barnes had given Burnley the lead with a fine strike and the revolt which ensued has dominated Sunday’s papers. “The level of aggression was something I couldn’t believe a West Ham fan would get involved in”.

Moyes installed Spanish keeper Adrian as his No. 1, but after seeing him ship eight goals in the last two matches, Hart will get another chance in the West Ham goal. When you’ve lost 3-0, and had people coming onto the pitch, that means the next five games look pretty bleak.

“I don’t think I’ve been at football games in my time where I’ve seen that”.

West Ham fans have questioned the decision to sell the Ghana global after he inspired the Swans to a 4-1 win over his former club.

The former Everton and Manchester United manager added: “We still have plenty of games, we are good enough and we will be out of the bottom three come the end of the season”.

We’re fighting for points.

Mark Noble had to wrestle a pitch invader off the pitch, while another managed to steal a corner flag and plant it in the middle of the pitch, reminiscent of Graeme Souness’ antics while in Turkey.

“The atmosphere was frightful”.

A turbulent week off the pitch – which has seen fans cancel a planned protest march and then turn against each other when a second demonstration was arranged and subsequently shelved – became toxic.

Everton host Brighton who are one place above them in 10th, which will not amuse Sam Allardyce, who has spent the week saying that he not only wants to stay at Goodison in the long term but knows he needs to start winning games, so he can not have it both ways.

Gold, accosted by angry fans in the auto park as he made his getaway from last week’s abject defeat at Swansea, had admitted in the matchday programme: “There is no denying it, we are in a battle for our Premier League survival”.

“A lot of my players did well with the way they acted”.
