West Ham accused of behaving like ostriches over abuse of fan

Premier League round up: Wins for Everton, Newcastle, Leicester and Burnley

The FA are considering charging West Ham following Saturday's supporter unrest, and are now awaiting the club's observations.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche felt it was just commonsense to allow young West Ham fans into the Burnley dugout on Saturday.

Under the terms of West Ham's rental deal, the costs of policing and stewarding are covered by London Stadium 185 and paid for by the taxpayer.

Brooking acknowledged Barnes' opening goal "triggered problems" and said "there was a quite sizeable group then below the directors' box that came to chant in a really aggressive manner".

While Noble, who received a torrent of abuse from supporters, engaged in a war of words with the invaders, much of the criticism was aimed at owners David Gold and David Sullivan who had coins thrown in their direction before the full-time whistle.

West Ham's income has doubled over the last five years, with spending on players also having doubled during that time, but Turner questioned the club's "real investment" in the football team.

"I don't think you will see a repeat of that going forward but that is only if the supporters are given the opportunity they want to express how they feel about the board".

"I saw some families leaving because the youngsters were frightened".

"Don't forget, at West Ham I did a medical, I was supposed to sign for West Ham", he said on talkSPORT this morning.

"We know people can't come on the pitch but I can't imagine it was unsafe for the players. I'm hoping that they have had their outburst, because all that matters is staying in the Premier League".

The Hammers are now in the thick of a relegation battle in the Premier League and sit just three points above the drop zone.

The Football Association confirmed it will request West Ham's version of events as the organisation condemned events at the scene of the London 2012 Olympics.
