West Ham United vs Burnley Prediction

West Ham United have done well under the management of David Moyes, and sit 10th in the league table. They sold striker Sebastien Haller to Ajax a few days ago. It remains to be seen whether the Hammers bring in a new addition to the forward line due to Michail Antonio's injury issues.

Burnley, on the other hand, are 16th in the league table. Sean Dyche's side are renowned for their ability to absorb pressure, and the Clarets will be keen not to get dragged into a relegation battle this season.

West Ham United have a good side, and should be able to beat Burnley.

Prediction: West Ham United 1-0 Burnley
