David Moyes says his West Ham players are prepared for any more crowd trouble.

The Hammers' last outing at the London Stadium against Burnley was marred by pitch invasions, missile throwing and protests against the club's board.

The incidents clearly had an effect on the players as they capitulated to a 3-0 defeat. West Ham now face a huge clash with relegation rivals Southampton today, knowing defeat will see them slip into the relegation zone.

But manager Moyes insists his side will not fold if the trouble flares up again.

He said: "We have got such a strong and powerful support base that when it's good, it's good but when you don't, they let you know.

"We have to make sure that we are in the game, got to make sure we don't let anything alter our mindset. I think the players are in a different mindset now. They are prepared."

Ahead of the Southampton game, security around the executive seats has been beefed up, while there will be an extra police presence in the ground.
