West Ham vs Burnley Betting Tips
Burnley’s arrival at the London Stadium kicks off a series of favourable fixtures for West Ham. With Hull, Swansea and Leicester being the next three fixtures, Slaven Bilic has voiced his desperation to squeeze out the maximum points off these matches. ‘’We have to win and hopefully we will” the Hammers boss was quoted after the 2-2 draw with Liverpool. “And then it will change – not the season, but it can help us move up the table. It’s going to be very hard and we will have to show our quality.” West Ham showed great character to secure a 2-2 draw against Liverpool on Sunday and would be confident ahead of their midweek clash against the Clarets.
Sean Dyche’s men made Bournemouth their fifth victim at home as they claimed a much deserved win at Turf Moor on Sunday. But their form have been far less impressive on the road as they managed to avoid defeat only once in their away endeavours this season.
Cheikhou Kouyate will be back in contention for the Hammers while Andy Carroll would also push for a start after an impressive spell off the bench at Anfield.
Burnley might include Andre Gray and Ashley Barnes in the squad. The duo was praised by Sean Dyche for their effective substitution roles against Bournemouth. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is on the verge of a full recovery after straining his hamstring but the trip to London might have come too soon for him.
West Ham might capitalise on Burnley’s horrible away form and pick up a crucial victory at home. 2-0 for the Hammers is our prediction.
