West Ham United shame as fans invade pitch at London Stadium

West Ham's poor form continued at full pace as the Swans gave the Hammers a hammering in a match of few positives for David Moyes.

Once more the stewards were seemingly powerless to intervene except to ask West Ham joint-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, whose decision to quit the east London club's longstanding Upton Park ground for a move to what was the 2012 Olympic Stadium is a source of some fans' fury, to leave their seats, seemingly for their own safety.

"An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders".

Weak throughout the spine of the team, West Ham's cause was not helped in the 27th minute when Winston Reid was stretchered from the pitch with a knee injury that has since ruled him out of the rest of this season. "There will be no further comment at this time".

The Clarets have been the surprise package of the Premier League campaign and, with nine matches to go, they are the best of the rest outside the big six and have a chance of qualifying for Europe next season. I wouldn't use that as an excuse for me after it, but I certainly don't think it helped.

Burnley's focus on basing their game plan around a clean sheet - and their success at doing so - makes them the league leaders for games with under 2.5 goals (76%, 22 out of 29).

"Overall I have worked higher up but I would say it's the most competitive it's been".

Hammers captain Mark Noble tried to send one pitch invader away and another sprinted on holding a corner flag shortly after Chris Wood added to Ashley Barnes' opener for the visitors.

I am predicting that Burnley wins this game. The team has played well too, so it has all come together. The players know we did well today for long periods. You've just got to pick up points when you can.

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

"Andre Ayew did well enough for Swansea but don't forget that he didn't want to stay", he told fans in the London Evening Standard Column.

"If I thought there were no mistakes or no problems I wouldn't have made any changes".
