Hart to return to West Ham starting XI


Moyes spoke about the moment Mark Noble clashed with a pitch invader and admitted that he thought the Hammers skipper might have been sent-off for his actions: "A little bit (though he might be sent-off)".

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.

Hammers fans had been voicing their anger towards the club's board as they sat just three points ahead of the relegation zone heading into the game.

The afternoon got even worse for David Moyes' side when Wood netted a third for the visitors, latching onto the rebound after Joe Hart spilled a Johann Berg Gudmundsson shot. Joint-owners David Gold and David Sullivan are understood to have left their seats for their own safety.

"I've said it all along, Joe's been good, and I've got competition in some places so you have to play well". But you can't cross the line and come on the pitch.

Burnley recorded a much-needed victory over Everton last weekend, ending a run of eleven games without a win.

West Ham United could face repercussions after several pitch invasions and ugly scenes in the stands during the second half of a crushing 3-0 home Premier League defeat by Burnley. The players have been really good in the main, I think the players have been really good. In playing a team who have failed to score in 5 of their previous 7 away games, this could be the flawless opportunity for the Hammers to do just that.

The club issued a statement immediately after this latest fiasco, reading: 'West Ham United 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.

"There is no place at any level of the game for what happened at the London stadium. A lot of my players did well with the way they acted".

"We scored a top goal, a great pass from Matt Lowton and a fine lay-off [by Wood]. We need to find that".

"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".
