Moyes: Referee did not consider abandonment despite pitch invasions

West Ham United's English defender Sam Byram vies with Brighton's Cameroonian defender Gaetan Bong during the English Premier League football match between Brighton and Hove Albion and

Scotland Yard has received two allegations of assault and West Ham said it has launched a "full and thorough investigation" into today's events.

The match was interrupted for a second time following Burnley's second goal when another pitch invader grabbed a corner flag and attempted to plant it in the centre of the pitch.

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.

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.

Recent history is with West Ham, who have won five of their last seven Premier League games against Burnley, including victories in all three home matches. They're just trying to say, "Come on, just get off the pitch".

Afterwards West Ham manager David Moyes called for the fans to get behind the team. Michail Antonio rose from the bench to provide a goal and a small measure of dignity for the Hammers but while his display was enough to earn him a start this weekend, most of his teammates will need to improve if they're to keep their own place in the side.

"There is no place at any level of the game for what happened at the London stadium". By that stage the action on the pitch had become nearly incidental with fans directing their anger at the club's chiefs.

"We would like to commend referee Lee Mason and his team of officials for their actions which, combined with the cooperation of players and coaching staff from both clubs, enabled the match to be completed".

West Ham United have now lost three league games in a row by a margin of three or more goals for the first time since March 2008. We are one of about seven or eight teams, or perhaps even more, with only three to six points between them, which shows how hard the Premier League is. The players have been really good in the main, I think the players have been really good.

"You could argue that we had coped with just about everything up until the time".
