The Football Association "strongly condemned" the crowd disturbances and said it would be seeking observations from West Ham.

"West Ham United have immediately launched a full and thorough investigation into the incidents which marred the second half of today's match and are committed to taking decisive and appropriate action", the club said in a statement on Saturday night.

A depleted West Ham United defence is hoping to hold firm against a Burnley side who are back to winning ways but have failed to score in five of their last seven away league fixtures.

Hundreds of fans congregated beneath the directors' box to chant "Sack the board", which includes co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan.

Describing the threat charge, it also notes that Hickman can be heard saying to Rush: "You're going to get f--d up hardcore". Hickman resigned from the department sometime before january 19, according to a memo obtained by the Citizen Times .

After a goalless first half, Burnley took the lead through Ashley Barnes in the 66th minute - prompting a number of supporters to invade the pitch and approach West Ham players.

Another supporter picked up a corner flag, ran to the centre circle and planted it in the ground.

Referee Lee Mason even consulted Hammers boss David Moyes and Burnley manager Sean Dyche over abandoning the game as the away team allowed kids in their dugout to escape the fighting.

If people come on the pitch I can't imagine they're trying to be risky towards players.

There were 25 people injured in the explosion, the director of Civil Protection for Playa del Carmen told ABC News . According to the embassy's website, travelers should be "aware of their surroundings" and "exercise caution".

Nevertheless, Moyes tried to keep the conversation on the football: "I thought we did well first half - probably had two great chances to be in front at half-time - we should have been in front at half-time. There will be no further comment at this time". No one wants to ideally see fans on the pitch but they get frustrated.

"It's changing all the time, there is very little between the teams in 10th and down the bottom so I think any one team can beat the other".

"All I'll say to all of them is that we need them". We are one of about seven or eight teams, or perhaps even more, with only three to six points between them, which shows how hard the Premier League is. The players know we did well today for long periods.

"It's a tough situation, I can sympathise with the fans".
