Ugly scenes as West Ham lose home match

West Ham United head into Saturday's clash with Burnley with veteran defender Pablo Zabaleta hailing the showdown the first of "nine finals" as the Hammers continue their desperate fight against relegation.

Mark Noble understands the frustrations of West Ham fans, but defended his right to protect himself after tussling with a pitch invader who approached him during the 3-0 loss against Burnley.

West Ham stayed just above the relegation zone with its latest heavy defeat - a week after losing 4-1 at fellow relegation rival Swansea - but its Premier League plight is nothing compared to West Bromwich Albion's.

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.

Gold and Sullivan left their seats with five minutes of the game remaining, having spent around 10 minutes listening to fans furiously singing that they had "destroyed" the club. They're just trying to say, "Come on, just get off the pitch". "It does make the atmosphere really tough to play in". When it went to two it didn't look like that was the game it was going to be. You know what it is, you can't come on the pitch and the players know that they have to perform on the pitch.

"There's going to be more pressure on them than there is on most of those teams at the bottom because there's newly promoted teams and there's teams that aren't seen as (being) as good as West Ham".

There is no place at any level of the game for what happened at the London Stadium today.

"We have two big home games coming up now with Burnley and Southampton and we need to win against those teams".
