West Ham vs Burnley: Predictions
After 17 games, West Ham are 10th in the league but only six points behind fourth-placed Leicester City, such is the closeness of the top half of the table. The good form comes after West Ham had opened the new campaign with back-to-back defeats against Newcastle and Arsenal.
But since that defeat to Arsenal, West Ham have lost just three times in the league, beaten only by Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea. The Hammers are also unbeaten in their past four games across all competitions, with two draws and two wins including victory over Stockport County in the third round of the FA Cup, and a well-fought win against Everton.
Burnley, meanwhile, have been in strange form this season and currently sit 16th in the table just four points above the relegation zone, though they have a game in hand on many of the teams around them. After beating MK Dons in the FA Cup, Burnley returned to league action in midweek, losing to Manchester United.
It was Burnley’s second loss in three Premier League games, also losing to Leeds, but stretching things further it doesn’t look too bad for Sean Dyche’s side. Since getting their first league win of the season against Crystal Palace on 23 November, Burnley have won three of their eight games including victory over Arsenal, while drawing twice.
