West Ham – Burnley – At this meeting, the extraordinary 16th round of the English Premier League will meet two teams from the lower part of the table, with the 17th West Ham now have four points behind 13th Burnley. In addition, the visiting team in the last round home win over Bournemouth finally broke a string of three losses, while on the other hand “hammer” in London for six games without a victory in the championship. But because the team West Ham won the last three of their mutual visit, and three seasons ago in the League Cup and two seasons in the Premiership. Start: 14.12.2016. – 19:45 CET
Of course that domestic football players and now do their best to come up with victory over Burnley, especially after last weekend played a very good match at Anfield and against favored Liverpool won a draw of 2: 2, and after they even had a lead to 2: 1. In this way it finally ended, and this series is extremely tough matches for the popular “hammerhead”, in which the championship typed three draws and three defeats, while the League Cup in the quarterfinals eliminated by Manchester United after the Old Trafford defeat by 4 : first
But, just as against the same rivals a few days earlier on the primary hosting won a draw 1: 1, which they won with this last point at Anfield is certainly a big boost before the rest of the season, where they were certainly the main goal is to as quickly as possible to break through the middle of the table. Because of that already in this meeting with Burnley expect a lot more aggressive and offensive approach home team would be so after a long time in the starting lineup could find and recovered striker Carroll. Unlike him, because injuries are still sidelined defenders Kouyate, Collins, Byram and Oxford, midfielder and striker Tore Sakho.
Probable lineups West Ham: Randolph – Nordtveit, Reid, Ogbonna – Antonio, Noble, Obiang, Cresswell – Lanzini, Payet – Carroll
For guests from Burnley we can safely say that I can be satisfied with the current 13-place them on the table, especially since they have five points more than the team from the relegation zone. But what is certainly worrying coach Dychea the fact that most of these points won at home, while the past six hosting only one remained undefeated, and this six rounds at Old Trafford. However, recently both at home lost points in the match with Manchester City, who were defeated by 2: 1, so that they were in a series of three straight defeats but it is still interrupted last weekend when they were at home with 3 2 win over Bournemouth.
This is why in their camp believe that now against West Ham could come to a positive result, which would certainly be a draw and so it is quite realistic to expect that the coach Dyche put some defensive tactics but in a meeting with Bournemouth. And it actually means that the top of the attack should act only corpulent Welshman Vokes, while the remaining three attackers Barnes, Gray and Bamford wait for his chance from the bench. Let us add here that it is still sidelined only injured midfielder Gudmundsson.
Probable lineups Burnley: Heaton – Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward – Defour, Marney – Arfield, Hendrick, Boyd – Vokes
West Ham – Burnley TIP
Although Burnley now has four points clear of West Ham, we still believe that the team from London last week’s draw at Anfield given extra power and that now should finally come to a victory.
