David Moyes blasts Andre Ayew after West Ham departure

David Moyes blasts Andre Ayew after West Ham departure

The home side lost the game 3-0 and were subjected to several pitch invasions after conceding their first goal of the afternoon.

West Ham supporters directed their anger at the club's owners sitting in the directors' box.

"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".

David Moyes has faced Sean Dyche four times as manager in all competitions, failing to win a single meeting (D2 L2, all with Sunderland last season). But West Ham have not been easy to beat at home and are sure to put up a fight.

After a scoreless first half, Ashley Barnes' opener in the 66th minute triggered the start of the problems inside London Stadium on Saturday.

Moyes' decision to recall England global Joe Hart backfired, with the goalkeeper spilling a Johann Gudmundsson shot to allow substitute Wood to tuck home.

"Overall I have worked higher up but I would say it's the most competitive it's been".

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.

"I didn't feel under threat - they were just voicing their frustration".

West Ham are now in 16th place in the Premier League, three points above the relegation zone.

Referee Lee Mason was also forced to stop the game shortly after when another supporter came on to the pitch, grabbed a corner flag and attempted to plant it in the centre circle.

"The Stadium planned and implemented a robust and extensive security plan in line with the recommendation of the met police, and in line with requirements of the licensing authority".
