Moyes: Referee did not consider abandonment despite pitch invasions

Bobby Moore

That was frustrating but this season I think I have played some good football.

After the home side fell behind to Ashley Barnes' left-footed 66th-minute strike, two supporters entered the field of play to protest against the club's hierarchy, with West Ham battling against relegation.

An FA investigation is underway while an emergency meeting of all London Stadium stakeholders has also been called after the West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold were forced to leave the game early for their own safety.

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.

There are no fewer than 12 or 13 teams now fighting to preserve their Premier League status, with nine points separating 9th placed Watford from the drop zone, with only West Bromwich Albion starting to get cut adrift.

A positive is that Moyes's side have scored in seven of those eight home games, the exception being a goalless draw against Arsenal, although the high draw rate stems largely from their lack of a clean sheet between that match on December 13 and the 2-0 win over Watford in their most recent home match.

The Clarets fought back to overturn a half-time lead and claim their first victory in 12 games with a rousing second-half display. "But for the time I've been here, I've certainly enjoyed it".

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.

"I don't think there's any malice in Noble getting hold of someone and Barnesy". I don't think the players felt like that. But you have to play well. The players know we did well today for long periods. We've got to find winning ways, we need to do it quickly. You've just got to pick up points when you can.

He has told the board that he will want to make major changes to the squad if he stays, with as many as 10 players leaving. So we get back at it, we do the job.

"Since I've been here (the fans) have been really good".
