West Ham

The Hammers have an extraordinary season, although judging by the last championship, things are going a little better. At the moment, the team rounds out the top ten and is six points behind the European competition zone.

West Ham put in a lot of effort to recover from the crushing defeat to Chelsea (0:3) and start scoring points. The team drew a successful draw with Brighton (2:2), then drew a draw with Southampton (0:0) and beat Everton to a minimum on the road (1:0).

"Iron" held on to "Goodison Park" with dignity, also responded with sharp counterattacks to the opponent's pressure and in the end achieved their goal. Midfielder Tomas Soucek became a rescuer for guests and at the same time the main character of the confrontation, as in the 86th minute he scored the winning goal after a rebound.

David Moyes' charges will return to the home arena, where they are performing quite well this season. Hosts practice a more defensive style of play, although against Burnley you can afford to play more open football.

Burnley

"Burgundy" are very close to the relegation zone, so now every point is worth its weight in gold. The team understands this very well, but the competition is very serious and the game now resembles a roller coaster, as victories alternate with defeats.

Burnley hosted Manchester United in the previous meeting, but the level of the opponent did not allow them to show their maximum. Although, to be honest, guests played very well (0:1). The team from the city of the same name held back attacks with all their might, but still conceded on 71 minutes. Paul Pogba upset his opponent and left him without anything.

Sean Ditch's charges are approaching the fight with West Ham in fighting strength and mood. Of course, no one promises an easy walk, rather, on the contrary, we will see a real cut. One gets the impression that the "burgundy" will try to catch the opponent on a counterattack, since in most of their fights the main stake is on defense, so the head coach is unlikely to change the strategy.

Prediction

West Ham have not been particularly aggressive in recent matches, although it can be noted that the club has not lost for four matches. Points are not very easy for the hammers this season, although it is encouraging that David Moyes' guys are in the top ten.

Burnley are going through a difficult period. The team squeezes the maximum out of themselves, but defends more than attacks. The next away match does not bode well either, so guests will have to close again in defense and hope for counterattacks. In our opinion, we will see a lot of struggle in the center of the field, therefore, one should not count on an effective confrontation.

Our prediction is a total under 2.5 goals for 1.83 odds in bookmaker 1xBet.
