Hart gets WC lifeline with West Ham start

Hart gets WC lifeline with West Ham start

Wood scored a third goal as West Ham imploded on and off the pitch, with the team three points above the relegation zone.

As that fan ran back toward the stands another two came on and were eventually led away by defender James Collins.

A Pitch invader falls to the pitch confronted by West Ham's Mark Noble, with goalkeeper Joe Hart, right.

One fan grabbed a corner-flag and ran to the centre of the pitch, and there were more attempts to disrupt the game when Chris Wood got his second of the day to make it 3-0.

Once more the stewards were seemingly powerless to intervene except to ask Gold and 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 behind many fans' fury - to leave their seats.

The problems started after Ashley Barnes gave Burnley the lead in the 66th minute.

Meanwhile Burnley's coaching staff allowed children caught up in the chaos to shelter in their dug-out.

Gudmundsson said: "I think they are only five points ahead of us now, but it's about going into every game and working as hard as we always do".

"I wouldn't say I felt in danger but you never know in this world". We're all in it. "There are definitely similarities (between Iceland and Burnley) - how we play, the mentality of the squad, and we are both doing very well".

"It is changing all the time because I don't think there is a lot between the teams from 10th down to the bottom", he added. We needed the supporters with us in a different way. I think the first goal was always going to be crucial today, whoever got it, the former Everton chief remarked.

"An emergency meeting has been called with all London Stadium stakeholders".

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.

However, the focus was less about football and more on the actions of West Ham's fans, with three separate pitch invasions forcing referee Lee Mason to hold up proceedings.

Some huge relegation battles take place with Newcastle hosting Southampton and Swansea heading to Huddersfield, while West Ham host Burnley, Brighton travel to Everton and West Brom clash with Leicester.

"We probably started the second half a bit better, and when we were put under pressure, that's when we had to cope with the one or two opportunities that they came up with".
