West Ham vs Burnley Prediction: Premier League Match on 17.04.2022

West Ham’s inconsistent run of results has seen their chances of finishing in a Champions League place hit hard over recent weeks. Burnley are the visitors to the London Stadium, and will desperately need a victory improve their survival chances.


Premier League Preview

It’s safe to say that West Ham’s eye would have certainly been on the Europa League over recent weeks, as they have a huge second leg against Lyon to look forward too. But, that distraction has seen them fall away in the Champions League battle, as they now sit six points adrift of Tottenham, having played a game more.

The Hammers have picked up just two victories in their previous five games and could drop out of the top seven altogether should Wolves end the season strongly. West Ham were beaten for the eleventh time this season in their most recent fixture in the Premier League, as they were beaten 2-0 on the road by Brentford. The Hammers could only manage a single shot on target in that defeat, and David Moyes will be hoping for a much stronger performance against the Clarets this weekend.

Burnley gave themselves an excellent chance of survival just over a week ago, as they picked up a massive 3-2 win against Everton. However, they start this game back in the same position as they were before that game, as they are four points from safety with eighth matches of the Premier League season remaining. Sean Dyche has never been one to throw in the towel though, which means the Clarets will be fighting until the end of the season.

Wins have been in very short supply throughout the season for Burnley, as no side have won fewer this season. They were beaten in a relegation six-pointer against Norwich in their latest fixture.

West Ham vs Burnley Head to Head

West Ham are unbeaten in three league fixtures against Burnley. However, the most recent meeting between the sides ended in a 0-0 draw in December. West Ham won this fixture last season, but the Clarets did pick up a 1-0 win at the London Stadium in July 2020.

West Ham vs Burnley Prediction

The Hammers come into this fixture just days after their Europa League showdown against Lyon. That could play into the hands of Burnley, as I predict them to upset the odds here and keep their survival hopes alive with a rare win.
