David Moyes blasts Andre Ayew after West Ham departure

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

Scotland Yard has received two allegations of assault and West Ham said it has launched a "full and thorough investigation" into today's events.

One supporter was thrown to the ground by club captain Mark Noble, who was then restrained by Joe Hart.

West Ham's owners David Sullivan and David Gold were forced to leave the directors' box near the end as anger boiled over and supporters chanted'sack the board'.

Recent history is with West Ham, who have won five of their last seven Premier League games against Burnley, including victories in all three home matches.

However, there was another interruption as another fan ran on a few minutes after Chris Wood doubled Burnley's lead and waved the corner flag around the centre circle until players intervened and took it off of him.

Manager David Moyes says Hart "will start" against Burnley on Saturday.

Whereas Upton Park provided a formidable atmosphere, fans are separated from the pitch by the running track in their expansive, largely taxpayer-funded new home.

Moyes' men remain just three points above the relegation zone and a win against the Clarets on Saturday is crucial if the east Londoners are to avoid the drop.

When asked what he'd said to the players at full-time, Moyes responded: "I've told them that we are all sticking together - we're going to stick out chest out and go again". We are one of about seven or eight teams, or perhaps even more, with only three to six points between them, which shows how hard the Premier League is.

"Because I think if you look at the majority of the teams around them, I think West Brom - and probably West Brom supporters as well have probably written them off to a certain extent - I think Stoke's supporters a lot of them are probably looking at it and think it's going to be really tough". They have ways of venting that [frustration].

"Everyone knows you don't come on the pitch - that's the rules".

"It's changing all the time, there is very little between the teams in 10th and down the bottom so I think any one team can beat the other".
