Joe Hart to return for West Ham in boost to World Cup…

If the West Ham manager needs to try to change things against Burnley then he can look to his bench, where available to bring on are Patrice Evra and Javier Hernandez, amongst others. "A lot of fans got on the pitch", he said.

"We want the supporters behind us and since I've been here they've been really good, the supporters", he said.

Defeat left West Ham in 16th place, three points above the relegation zone and facing a crucial clash with 17th-placed Southampton at the London Stadium next.

Co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold were forced to leave the London Stadium early for their own safety, as supporters invaded the pitch and turned their anger away from the game and towards the directors' box.

"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".

"But the rule is that you can not come on to the pitch - you're not allowed".

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

Nevertheless, Moyes tried to keep the conversation on the football: "I thought we did well first half - probably had two great chances to be in front at half-time - we should have been in front at half-time".

"It was ideal in relation to what the game gave us", said United manager Jose Mourinho, who won the tactical battle over rival manager Juergen Klopp. They just want to see their team win.

It added: "An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders". You know what it is, you can't come on the pitch and the players know that they have to perform on the pitch.

While the Clarets have had a year to forget so far, they picked up their first win of 2018 last weekend, coming from behind to clinch victory for the first time this season.

"I think there was a couple of games where I wasn't quite so happy that we didn't do as well as we should have".

"We understand they are frustrated but obviously we are going to lose games and need them behind us. We were fine, they were just voicing their frustration".
