West Ham could be set for major punishment following crowd trouble vs Burnley

As per a report from Sky Sports News this afternoon, West Ham United could be set for a hefty punishment from the FA, following the disgraceful scenes at the London Stadium during their meeting with Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

Matchup

The two sides went head to head in a Premier League clash, with hosts West Ham having headed into proceedings just 3 points clear of the English top-flight’s relegation zone.

The Hammers had followed a morale-boosting 2-0 victory over Watford this time last month with consecutive 4-1 drubbings, first at the hands of Liverpool, then versus Swansea.

Burnley, meanwhile, put their own disappointing run of form behind them with a 2-1 win over Everton in their last fixture, leaving the Clarets sitting pretty in 7th-spot in the Premier League table heading to the English capital.

0-3

Second-half goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood (2) ensured another thoroughly miserable day for West Ham’s supporters at the London Stadium, with ugly scenes having erupted both on the pitch and in the stands towards the full-time whistle.

Closed doors?

In the immediate aftermath of the clash, West Ham confirmed that the club had opened a ‘full and thorough investigation into the incidents’ at the London Stadium, with a view to ‘taking decisive and appropriate action’.

However, fans of other clubs have called for the FA to take action of their own against the Hammers, with an update courtesy of Sky Sports News this afternoon revealing that the capital outfit’s fanbase could be the ones to suffer the brunt of the FA’s punishment over the coming months:
