The Burnley coaching staff even had to let children sit on their substitutes' bench to avoid being caught in skirmishes in the stands.

Police said there were four separate pitch invasions and that they have received two allegations of assault which they said are being investigated.

The revelations come amid a toxic atmosphere at the club and open protest during Saturday's home defeat to Burnley, and after a senior West Ham official told The Independent they didn't know people they were meeting would be responsible for such language.

A Premier League statement added: "It is essential that everybody who plays or attends a Premier League football match can do so safely".

Tensions boiled over at the London Stadium on Saturday as fans stormed the pitch and chanted at the board of directors.

Club legend Brooking was left nearly alone in the directors' box as West Ham slumped to their fourth league defeat in five matches, leaving them three points above the relegation zone in 16th position with eight games left in the campaign.

It was an horrific end to a turbulent week which saw a protest march called off as fans' groups turned on each other. Another fan ran on with a corner flag shortly after Burnley scored their second goal, with further incursions after the visitors struck a late third.

So Burnley won the match in terms of soccer and in terms of sportsmanship.

"The reality of the real issue is about the performance of the side, now they should get their stewarding and their policing in order to ensure these things don't happen on the pitch".

"On the pitch the options for the manager where there seems to be a lack of quality at times in the squad, where it gets to the point you have to bring in Patrice Evra in February just as soon as the January transfer window closes because you can't invest and recruit properly". West Ham do not play at home again until Southampton visit at the end of the month after the global break.
