- Off the back of their European exploits this past Thursday, West Ham return to Premier League action as they host Burnley with the Hammers currently sat in sixth-place on 51 points.
- An ankle injury is expected to keep Kurt Zouma out of this one and he is joined on the treatment table by Angelo Ogbonna.
- Burnley’s 2-0 defeat away at rock-bottom Norwich last Sunday was a disaster from their point of view and leaves them four points adrift of 17th-placed Everton ahead of their trip to the capital.
- Clarets fans have been rocked by the sacking of Sean Dyche on Good Friday and how this affects the players' performance here remains to be seen with the injured Ben Mee named as part of the team set to take charge in this match.

This is a massive chance for Burnley to close the gap on Everton, piling the pressure onto the Toffees going forward, but after failing to gain anything against Norwich combined with the removal of Sean Dyche as manager, it’s easy to see the Clarets being unable to gain what would be a crucial win. However, it would be no surprise to see Burnley look to play more expansively such is the importance of three points from their point of view, but whilst this could see them profit in front of goal, it may also allow West Ham more opportunities themselves especially when factoring in the quality that they pose going forward. With that in mind, backing both teams to score looks a smart move.
Tip: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
