Across all competitions, Burnley have not beaten West Ham since December 2011 when they picked up a 2-1 win at Upton Park in the Championship.
Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is yet to be on the losing side this season after replacing long-term absentee Tom Heaton.
Burnley have scored six Premier League goals this season, averaging one goal per game. At the other end they have conceded just five - an average of 0.71 goals against per game.
By the same token, West Ham are also averaging one goal per game but their defence is a lot more generous as they have conceded 13 at the other end - an average of 1.86 goals against per game.
85.7% of Burnley’s Premier League goals have come away from Turf Moor. The only player to score on their home ground is Chris Wood.
The Clarets are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches and they have suffered just one defeat this season.
Chris Wood and Sam Vokes still top the scoring charts for Burnley with two goals each to their name. Vokes however has the better minutes to goal ratio as he finds the net every 152 minutes.
Javier Hernandez leads the scoring charts for West Ham with three Premier League goals this season. He is responsible for 42.8% of West Ham’s top flight goals during this campaign.
West Ham’s win over Swansea before the international break was the first time that they have scored just a solitary goal in a game this season. Prior to that their goals came in pairs as they recorded two goal tallies against Southampton, Huddersfield and Tottenham alongside three blanks.
Burnley have made the least line-up changes from week-to-week in the Premier League this season, with Sean Dyche making just five changes to his team in the opening six matches.
Burnley have strayed offside the most times in the Premier League this season - 27 times.
The only success that Burnley have had over West Ham in the Premier League was back in February 2010 when they earned a 2-1 home win. In what was their debut season in the division, the Clarets would eventually be relegated after finishing 18th in the table and five points from safety.
