Burnley have becoming one of the mainstay of the Premier League over the past few seasons despite having one of the smallest budgets.
They surprised everyone when they finished 7th in the league last season and qualified for the Europa League. However, their participation in Europe’s second biggest competition has affected their form and they are yet to recover it.
They come into this game firmly in the relegation battle on the 18th position and their fans would be keen for their team to avoid the 5-1 mauling the suffered at the hands of Everton in their last game here.
West Ham hired a former Premier League winner as their manager as they look to become one of the contenders for a European place in the Premier League, and Manuel Pellegrini has begun helping the Hammers get closer to achieving that goal.
They have won 5 of their last 6 Premier League games and come into this game in the 9th position on the league table. It seems like only a matter of time before they break inside the top 7.
