A Pitch invader is confronted by security during the Premier League match at the London Stadium.

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.

"Joe Hart will start", Moyes confirmed. By that stage the action on the pitch had become nearly incidental with fans directing their anger at the club's chiefs. I didn't even look around to see if there was anybody there.

"You don't want that to happen on the pitch, it creates problems and safety issues".

"The supporters will have their reasons for it".

"We scored a top goal, a great pass from Matt Lowton and a fine lay-off [by Wood]". They're just trying to say, "Come on, just get off the pitch".

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble clashed with a pitch invader as their 3-0 defeat to Burnley was interrupted several times by spectators.

"While the official investigation of the incidents will be carried out by the Football Association, we will be asking our own questions of West Ham United about what happened this afternoon, especially to ensure similar events never reoccur".

It added: "An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders. There will be no further comment at this time".

"Up until the goal you wouldn't have thought that it would have been such a bad day", Moyes said.

But back-to-back 4-1 defeats to Liverpool and relegation rivals Swansea City has dragged the Hammers back into the thick of things in one of the most congested survival battles in recent memory.

"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".

The Clarets fought back to overturn a half-time lead and claim their first victory in 12 games with a rousing second-half display.

Moyes' decision to recall England worldwide Joe Hart backfired, with the goalkeeper spilling a Johann Gudmundsson shot to allow substitute Wood to tuck home.

What we need the club to do now - the supporters, the players, everybody - is pulling together.
