Burnley – West Ham United
Burnley welcomes West Ham United in a game from the 20th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Turf Moor.
Burnley are in a bad position at the moment. They are 18th in the league standings, being positioned in the relegation zone. Last season Burnley made a terrific performance and finished 7th in the league, even qualifying for Europa League. Now the situation is much different for Sean Dyche’s team.
So far Burnley’s record in the league shows 3 wins, 3 draws and 13 defeats. In their last five games they are pretty bad, losing four of them and winning only against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Turf Moor. In their last fixture Burnley suffered a devastating 1-5 defeat against Everton at home. Ben Gibson scored Burnley’s only goal in the game, but the truth is that Everton were much better on this day.
Right now Burnley are in a negative run of three consecutive defeats. Before losing to Everton, they also lost against Arsenal and Tottenham.
West Ham on the other hand are being really good lately. The Hammers won four of their last five games, beating Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Fulham and Southampton. West Ham suffered a defeat only against Watford.
In their last fixture West Ham enjoyed a 2-1 win against Southampton at the St. Mary’s. Both goals for Manuel Pellegrini’s team were scored by the Brazilian midfielder Felipe Anderson, who shined in this game.
Right now West Ham are already 9th in the league with 27 points won. if they continue to improve like this, they could even chase a Top 7 finish in the league.
That’s our thoughts about the Premier League fixture between Burnley and West Ham United at the Turf Moor. We wish you good luck!
