West Ham vs Burnley Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham United vs Burnley
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: London Stadium, London.


West Ham United and Burnley go head to head at Olympic Stadium in what is expected to be an exciting game.

The Hammers did well to beat Everton on the road in their last league match, with the team eliminating Stockport in the FA Cup at the weekend.

The capital club aim to retain their spot in top ten, and bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s football game.

Masuaku should be the only absentee in the home team, with Bowen, Cresswell, and Soucek pushing for a start.

The Clarets suffered a 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Tuesday evening, with the team remaining in the danger zone in the Premier League standings.

Since Burnley have been struggling on the travels in the first half of the season, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling West Ham’s party in London.

Dunne should be fit to face the Hammers, while Taylor is rated doubtful for the match.
