FRANK Lampard hailed Burnley's strike duo as the Clarets downed West Ham with a 'fantastic' second half performance.

Match of the Day pundit Lampard gave Sean Dyche's side plenty of credit, after he and Jermaine Jenas initially looked at the ugly scenes in the London Stadium.

The atmosphere turned toxic after Ashley Barnes had given Burnley the lead midway through the second half, with pitch invaders confronting players and hundreds of fans surrounding the directors box.

But Lampard was keen to give the Clarets credit as well, particularly Chris Wood, who came off the bench to provide the assist for Barnes' opener before scoring twice himself.

“Chris Wood came on and changed the game for Burnley. They deserve huge credit. He made it two up front for Burnley," said Lampard.

“This was a striker’s run, I’m getting in behind you, going to hold it up, we were talking about a lack of support (for West Ham’s forwards), well there’s proper support from Ashley Barnes and it’s a top drawer finish, it’s absolutely brilliant stuff from him.

“All of a sudden they’ve got more bodies in the box. Barnes (involved) again, I’m a big fan of his, very honest, good ability, scores goals, Lennon doesn’t catch it but when you’re a striker in the right areas things fall for you.

“Barnes again makes a little run, the ball goes sideways to Gudmundsson, Joe Hart should save that but it’s Wood again being a good striker, he’s sniffing the opportunity and Burnley deserve great credit.

“When it comes to the football their second half performance was fantastic."

Jenas added that the Clarets were having an 'unbelievable' season, while host Gary Lineker showed the picture of Burnley substitutes allowing young West Ham fans to sit on the bench and said it was a 'lovely touch' from the club.

On the protests that marred the second half, Lampard added: "It was very toxic today, a horrible feeling in the second half.

"Fans confronting the players, I understand Mark Noble's position, he's Mr West Ham, he's a fan. This isn't right, whatever way you look at it.

"This was very aggressive today. I understand some of the fans' feelings in general, they feel they lost an identity moving stadium.

"The club have a £29million net spend since they’ve moved. It's not enough, they've gone backwards. So fans are asking the question - but not mid-game."
