Burnley vs West Ham prediction: Burnley 2-2 West Ham

Burnley head into the weekend on the back of three straight defeats while West Ham are without a win in their last six in all competitions.

The Hammers have only won one of their five matches on the road this season.

A potential place in the top half of the table is up for grabs for the side that wins it.

Burnley vs West Ham: Who will win?

Burnley are 13/10 favourites to win the match while West Ham are priced at 2/1. The draw can be backed at 5/2.

Despite their poor run of form, West Ham have managed to find the back of the net in five of their last six Premier League matches. There have been at least three goals scored in each of Burnley’s last three games. Bet on over 2.5 goals at 8/11.

Chris Wood has a 100% scoring record against West Ham, netting in each of his four appearances against them – the best 100% scoring record in the Premier League. Wood is 9/2 to open the scoring and 5/4 to score anytime.

Burnley vs West Ham Premier League match preview

Burnley welcome West Ham United to Turf Moor on Saturday.

Last weekend the Clarets suffered a 3-0 defeat away to newly-promoted Sheffield Wednesday, conceding all three goals in the first half. Burnley have conceded 7 goals in their previous two games.

Last weekend’s defeat saw Burnley slip even further down the table to 14th position.

West Ham lost 2-3 at home to Newcastle last Saturday. The Hammers were 3-0 down and managed to score two in the final 20 minutes through Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass. Ultimately it was a case of too little, too late.

West Ham also dropped down and begin Matchweek 12 one place and one point above Burnley.

Burnley beat West Ham 2-0 in their most recent meeting at Turf Moor in December 2018. Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil were on target for Sean Dyche’s side.

The two sides have met 10 times in the Premier League. West Ham have had the better of it, winning six and losing three of those matches.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is “a month and a half” away from returning from a serious hamstring injury picked in September. His deputy, Roberto, has come under heavy criticism for a number of costly errors in the four matches he has played in.

Winston Reid is likely to return after the international break after getting some minutes at U23 level under his belt. Michail Antonio will also return after the upcoming internationals.

Jack Wilshere has a groin problem and will need to be assessed.

Manuel Lanzini and Ryan Fredericks will be pushing for starts after coming off the bench last week. Angelo Ogbonna, Carlos Sanchez and Pablo Fornals were all unused substitutes and could benefit from any rotation by Manuel Pellegrini.
