Ugly scenes as West Ham lose home match

Premier League West Ham United fans invade pitch force team owners to flee seats

West Ham are facing the prospect of severe sanctions after the most serious outbreak of trouble yet inside the London stadium as David Moyes's side crashed to a 3-0 defeat against Burnley.

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".

David Moyes has claimed that the pitch invaders in West Ham United's 3-0 home defeat to Burnley had "crossed the line" and praised his players for their composure.

As part of an ugly morning which featured a fan planted a corner flag at midfield and a section of the crowd nearly universally turning away from the pitch, West Ham veteran Mark Noble tackled a pitch intruder.

Joint-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, whose decision to uproot the club from its old east London Upton Park ground to the former Olympic Stadium is behind the anger, are understood to have left their seats for their own safety.

The long-term England No.1, on a season's loan from Manchester City, will be recalled by Moyes for Saturday's home match after losing his place to Adrian for West Ham's last 15 Premier League games.

West Ham now sit in 14th place on 30 points just three clear of the Premier League drop zone and were dealt a huge blow earlier this week when key defender Winston Reid was ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up a nasty knee injury at Swansea last Saturday.

During Thursday's hearing, Manafort's attorney Kevin Downing broached the idea of an extension for the trial date with U.S. Prosecutors told said in court they planned to call 20-25 witnesses and said their arguments could last up to two weeks.

"All I'll say to all of them is that we need them".

West Ham have a two-year contract ready to hand to Moyes in the summer.

"We had played well enough to be in front but the first goal quickly altered things".

"I was on the touchline looking on to the pitch, trying to get us back in the game".

"I don't think I've been at football games in my time where I've seen that".

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. "We were fine, they were just voicing their frustration".

"I think it's a tough situation for a player".
