West Ham United Vs Burnley Preview, Trivia, Predicted Line-Ups And Odds

West Ham United welcome Burnley to the London Stadium, a new stadium in which the Hammers have found it difficult to feel at home at. In a season which hasn’t been kind to them, they have had their targets revised drastically. But with a welcome draw against Liverpool behind them, they will be fairly confident squaring up to the Clarets.

Burnley, on the other hand, have caused a couple of tremors this season but haven’t been consistent enough to make use of those results. A 2-0 win against Liverpool made the Premier League sit up and take notice. Another defensive masterclass aligned with the heroics of Tome Heaton, saw them blunt Manchester United’s attack at Old Trafford.

Both the teams would want to get 3 points but the Hammers will be backing themselves to clinch this.

TRIVIA

West Ham have won three of their four previous Premier League contests against Burnley (L1), including both games in the 2014/15 season.

The Clarets scored three times in their first Premier League game versus West Ham (losing 3-5) but have found the net just three times in their last three against the Hammers.

West Ham’s only defeat to Burnley in their last 11 home games in all competitions against them came in December 2011, losing 2-1 in the Championship. Sam Vokes scored the winner that day.

Burnley have never won a Premier League match in London (W0 D2 L10), scoring just six goals overall in these matches.

Just one of Burnley’s 17 Premier League points this season has been won away from home (6% of their total points).

Since the start of last season, West Ham have won just two of their seven Premier League games against newly-promoted teams (W2 D3 L2).

Burnley have allowed their opponents a league-high 95 shots on target this season in the Premier League.
