Burnley vs West Ham: Predictions
West Ham have just hit a snag in their hopes of pushing for an unlikely top-four finish in the Premier League this season, following up a 3-2 reversal at the hands of Newcastle by losing a six-pointer against Chelsea last time out, placing a huge emphasis on stopping the rot against Burnley.
David Moyes has worked wonders in E20 since stepping in to succeed Manuel Pellegrini, first preventing The Hammers from dropping down a tier, to elevating the club up the table and putting them within touching distance of sealing European football, a miraculous turn around in such a short space of time.
The Scot has played down the club’s chances of achieving Champions League qualification this term, with the last fortnight seriously hampering those prospects, but the fight for a European place in some capacity is still on, even the inaugural Europa Conference League is plausible.
However, Burnley will not prove an easy match by any stretch of the imagination. Sean Dyche has constructed a well-oiled, disciplined machine currently riding the crest of a wave having put Wolves 4-0 to the sword last week, while The Hammers have lost three of their last four games against their claret coevals.
Burnley vs West Ham: Match Stats
For the fourth consecutive season Chris Wood has notched double digits in the Premier League, bringing up 10 for this campaign against Wolves, in which he netted a brilliant hat-trick. And the New Zealander will be relishing the chance to add to his tally against West Ham, a club against whom he has scored more Premier League goals against than he has versus any other side in the competition (six goals in seven games), netting in all three of his appearances against The Hammers at Turf Moor in the competition.
For Moyes, he will be looking to the likes of Jarrod Bowen and particularly Jesse Lingard to do the business. The former has been moonlighting as a centre-forward in the absence of the injured Michail Antonio, while the latter has been in elite scoring form since trading Old Trafford for the capital in January, with his nine Premier League goals this season being worth 10 points to West Ham, more than any other player since his first appearance against Aston Villa in February.

West Ham broke a barren run of three successive league losses to Burnley in January, with Michail Antonio bagging the only goal of the game within the opening 10 minutes, and Moyes’ men holding out to take home three precious points. They will now be hoping to end a three-game winless run at Turf Moor.
