Match Preview

Burnley are 6th in the table and have collected 12 points from the opening 7 games. It’s been an impressive start to the campaign for a side that looks settled in the Premier League. They have lost just once in the last 5 games, a league cup exit on penalties. They’ve collected 2 wins and 2 draws in the last 4 league games, producing better displays away from home than at their usual fortress of turf moor. They are missing Heaton, Wells and Walters for this fixture, but have able replacements available. Goals are always going to be an issue for this Burnley side as they play defensively and lack pace. Wood started with a bang but has just 2 league goals this campaign. They’ve won 1, lost 1 and drawn 1 at home this season with just 2 goals occurring in those 3 fixtures. They’ve kept 2 clean sheets so far this year and have failed to score on 2 occasions. West Ham are up to 15th on 7 points after their last minute winner against Swansea. Their form has improved of late after a dreadful start to the season. They’ve stopped conceding soft goals and have picked up 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat in the last 5 fixtures. Collins is their only miss for this fixture and with a small squad that’s vital. They’ve picked up just 1 point from 4 away fixtures this season and have struggled on the road. They’ve scored just 2 goals away from home this season failing to score in 3 out of their 4 games. The return of Lanzini and Carroll should provide more attacking opportunities in the coming weeks. Both of these sides are goal shy. West Ham have a weaker defence, but the onus will be on a Burnley side that lack imagination. This game could very well be a stalemate with a point agreeable to both sides.
