The Hammers unlikely top-four push is fading fast and another defeat tonight could all but end their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
Injuries to Declan Rice and Michail Antonio have coincided with back-to-back defeats and West Ham will tonight be aiming to avoid three on the spin for the first time since Project Restart, and the injured pair may even make a return tonight.
David Moyes – who has lost both times he visited Turf Moor – is keen to make sure a superb season does not tail off and arrest a slide that has included as many defeats in their last eight games than in the previous 23.
Meanwhile, Burnley have not won at home in seven games but are brimming with confidence after thrashing Wolves 4-0 at Molineux, with Chris Wood scoring a remarkable first-half hat-trick.
