Betway Insider's View of the Opposition: Burnley


Only five teams have a better away record in this season’s Premier League than Burnley, who are Saturdsy's visitors to London Stadium.

Yet the Clarets have not won on the road since beating Bournemouth 2-1 in November, drawing four and losing three of their last seven.

West Ham have struggled themselves away from home of late, but their form at London Stadium remains good.

They have lost just one of their last nine matches in all competitions on home turf – a sequence that includes taking four points from Chelsea and Arsenal, plus the 2-0 win over Watford last time out.

The game ended 1-1 when these sides met at Turf Moor in October – a fine result for the Hammers, given they were forced to play more than half the match with ten men after Andy Carroll’s red card.

West Ham’s goalscorer that day was Michail Antonio, who appears to be returning to fitness and form at just the right time for David Moyes.

Antonio is a likely starter after coming off the substitutes’ bench to net consolation goals in the defeats at Liverpool and Swansea.

Just like the reverse fixture, today’s game is poised to deliver goals at both ends, with both teams scoring in ten of West Ham’s last eleven top-flight matches.

The outcome of the match, meanwhile, is likely to be decided late on.

There have been goals in the last 15 minutes in each of the Hammers’ last three games. For Burnley, that figure is five, and includes the defeat they suffered to Swansea in early February on their last away outing in the Premier League.

A repeat of that result today would do the Hammers nicely.
