West Ham United v Burnley current form.

Burnley have lost just one of their last eleven games in the Premier League, winning three of their last five away from Turf Moor.
West Ham United v Burnley match prediction.
With 14 goals in the last four meetings between these two sides, we can expect goals at the London Stadium this evening. Burnley stalwarts Ben Mee and Jack Cork will be huge absentees for the Clarets, so West Ham will be buoyed by their opponents’ injury concerns. That said, David Moyes has never got the better of Sean Dyche, seeing two draws and tasting defeat three times. A 2-2 draw is our prediction for this one.
Best bet for West Ham United v Burnley.
Burnley striker Chris Wood will be making his 100th Premier League appearance if selected tonight, and the New Zealand forward loves playing against West Ham. Wood has scored whenever he has come up against the Hammers in the Premier League, with six goals in five games – so an anytime goalscorer punt on Wood against West Ham’s ramshackle defence seems the way to go tonight.
