After suffering defeat to Brentford on Sunday, West Ham missed an opportunity to move 5th in the Premier League and in doing so, overtake local rivals Arsenal in the process. While that defeat will only feel double after Manchester United’s own loss the day before.

While this Sunday sees them go up against another side who lost on Sunday and after getting the better of Everton in midweek, Burnley failed to capitalise on their important win at Norwich.

West Ham 1-0 Win

With West Ham’s European exploits taking place on Thursday night, this is something that I have had to consider when looking at all the biggest and best betting sites and with that in mind, I think I have a top tip up my sleeve.

Because after Burnley’s defeat to Norwich, it seems like the wind has once again been taken out of their sails and with goals already in short supply this season, I think they will struggle to find the net this weekend.

Which means I have backed West Ham to win by the slenderest of margins and if you also think that David Moyes will oversee a 1-0 home win, you can join me in backing this outcome at odds of 6/1 (SportNation).

West Ham Form, squad news, opinion

Just how costly will West Ham’s defeat to Brentford be? That is the question that everyone will be asking themselves and with the Hammers spurning a chance to move up the table, it could also be the defeat that ends their top-four ambitions.

Ambitions that although were slightly unlikely, were still just in reach and although a direct invite to the Champions League looks lost in the post, they may still be able to earn one via the backdoor.

For that to happen, they will need to win this season’s edition of the Europa League and although a trip to Lyon is on the agenda this Thursday, they also end the week with the visit of Burnley.

A visit that could either hamper West Ham’s hopes of finishing the season in the top-six or give them a substantial boost at the same time and with both Manchester United and Wolves nipping at their heels, they cannot afford to drop points at the London Stadium.

While a lot will depend on whether David Moyes’ men have to deal with an additional 30 minutes against Lyon and with the cycle of Thursday/Sunday football already being difficult, this could potentially make things even harder.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Burnley, there are no new injury concerns for manager David Moyes to deal with. However, this does mean that he will once again be without the defender Angelo Ogbonna

Burnley Form, squad news, opinion

In terms of Burnley’s last seven days, it has certainly been a mixed bag. Euphoria after getting the better of Everton and nausea after losing to Norwich, while it is these two results that puts the Clarets back where they started.

Because after getting the better of Everton at Turf Moor, the gap between the two sides was just a solitary point and after such an important win in front of their own fans, many felt that the balance of power had tipped in Burnley’s favour.

However, Everton’s win over Manchester United temporarily extended the gap back to four points and with Burnley travelling to an even more out of sorts side in Norwich, a return to a solitary point was expected.

Of course, Burnley failed to turn up at Carrow Road in more figurative than literal sense and after losing 2-0 to Dean Smith’s men, their bid for survival at the end of the season has taken a huge dent.

Which means Burnley must hope for better fortunes at the weekend and with Everton having the next few days off, a defeat here would only give further impetus to the Toffee’s own survival tilt.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to West Ham, there are no injuries for manager Sean Dyche with and this will be something of a boost after their forgetful showing at Norwich last weekend.

While Josh Brownhill must be careful, as if he was to receive one more caution he would be served with a disciplinary ban.

History

When it comes to the history of West Ham and Burnley, it is the Hammers who have come out on top more often than not. However, there is not much between the two sides, and this is why Sunday should make for such an interesting clash.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, West Ham have won on 39 occasions, Burnley 35 and there have been 19 draws

About the Venue

The London Stadium opened in 2011 and holds up to 60,000 supporters

However, it was not football that was the first port of call at this venue and with it being previously called the Olympic Stadium, it was the likes of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt who were getting cheered to victory first.

With that said, West Ham have long since had the keys to the ground and although there were teething problems during the first couple of seasons, it is seemingly much more of a fortress for the Hammers these days.

Conclusion

quotes
When it comes to the Premier League outright odds for a top-four finish, backing West Ham might just be a step too far. However, backing the Hammers to finish in the top-six, is still worth some consideration.

While when it comes to Burnley, their odds in the Premier League relegation market will have only shortened after Sunday’s defeat to Norwich and now they have seemingly handed back the initiative to Everton when it comes to survival.
