Furious West Ham fans invade pitch and fight with players over Burnley embarrassment
The game was halted as stewards and police dealt with the situation, while West Ham players also helped get the invaders off the field, with Noble spotted throwing one to the ground.
However, there was another interruption as another fan ran on a few minutes after Chris Wood doubled Burnley’s lead and waved the corner flag around the centre circle until players intervened and took it off of him.
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.
Another supporter then ran on and tried to approach Hart, but got held back, while James Collins had to be restrained from confronting the offender.
As a crowd stood in front of the director’s box, the co-owners had both left their seats by the 85th minute, and the situation was so tense that Burnley let young West Ham fans sit on the bench for the rest of the game.
