West Ham United will travel to the Turf Moor to clash heads with Burnley on Saturday afternoon hoping to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United. Despite their recent set-back, the Hammers have made a solid start to this campaign so a victory at Lancashire this weekend could help them push up a few places in the league table.
Manuel Pellegrini will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might bring back Ryan Fredericks in place of Pablo Zabaleta for this clash in the Premier League.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Burnley
Łukasz Fabiański will start in between the sticks for the Hammers despite conceding three goals against the Magpies last weekend. Both Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena are likely to continue their defensive partnership at the heart of the West Ham backline. The defensive duo will have their hands full as they will go up against Burnley’s Ashley Barnes and Jay Rodriguez.
Ryan Fredericks could return to Pellegrini’s first-team and operate as the right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to put in another tireless shift from the left-back position. Both full-backs will need to pick their moments to get forward as they cannot leave spaces behind them for the Clarets to expose this weekend.
Angelo Ogbonna will once again have to settle for a place on the bench but might get a chance to feature in this game if Pellegrini calls upon his services.
Declan Rice will operate as the defensive lynchpin in midfield and might be joined by Mark Noble who will also play a similar role for this match on the road. Both players will focus on working hard to cover every blade of grass at the centre of the park to help West Ham dominate possession in midfield.
The talented trio of Andriy Yarmolenko, Robert Snodgrass and Felipe Anderson will operate just ahead of them as part of the Hammers attack. They will hope to orchestrate some decent openings for Sebastien Haller who is expected to lead the charge up top.
Snodgrass has been enjoying a rich vein of form for the East London outfit over the last couple of weeks so we can expect him to be a threat for the Burnley defenders on Saturday.
As mentioned earlier, Haller will spearhead Pellegrini’s attack upfront. Even though the 25-year-old has struggled to score goals consistently in the Premier League this season, he has worked hard for his side and has put in some impressive displays as a centre-forward. We can expect him to continue with his excellent work when he laces up to face Sean Dyche’s men this weekend.
