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

West Ham United manager David Moyes has told fans in his London Evening Standard column that he did not want to sell Andre Ayew to Swansea City in January, but the attacker had made it clear he wanted to leave.

A West Ham statement said: "We 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".

The Premier League match was played out against a backdrop of fan frustration with the Hammers board and, as that spilled over on to the field, one man approach Noble and the midfielder wrestled him to the floor.

Referee Lee Mason stopped the match momentarily following one of the pitch invasions, with a West Ham fan having attempted to plant the corner flag in the centre circle.

There was as much action in the stands as on the field at West Ham, where home fans invaded the field on two separate occasions to confront players and gathered below the directors' box to force the club's owners to be escorted out in the second half of the 3-0 loss to Burnley.

"But the rule is that you can not come on to the pitch - you're not allowed".

West Ham United manager David Moyes has predicted that the battle against the drop will continue until the very last day of the season.

"What we need the club to do now, the supporters, players, everybody, is pull together", he said.

"There is no place at any level of the game for what happened at the London stadium".

"We had played well enough to be in front but the first goal quickly altered things. There will be no further comment at this time".

"When I took over we were in the bottom three. A lot of fans got on the pitch", he said. But to do it - it would really help everybody to pull in the one direction because we've got eight games left to do so and I think we are more than capable of doing it - we are going to have to prove it.

West Ham's ageing wing-backs have failed to provide either the energy needed for their role or the experience which should be a given for two players with plenty of history behind them in the game. The players know we did well today for long periods.
