It has been a miserable return to the Premier League for Burnley, as they already find themselves in danger of being cast adrift at the bottom of the league standings. They come into this match sitting 20th, and they have picked up points from just two of their 12 matches in the top-flight this term.
Questions surrounding Kompany’s future at the club are beginning to be asked, as the Clarets come into this fixture after losing each of their previous five in the Premier League. At present, they sit two points adrift from safety, but that gap could be bigger if they fall to yet another defeat in the top-flight this weekend.
David Moyes was beginning to come under pressure before the international break, but the pressure on his shoulders was eased slightly following a dramatic 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest at the London Stadium. That win has lifted the Hammers back into the top half of the standings, and it ended a three-game losing sequence in the competition.
A second straight success this weekend could move the Hammers up to eighth in the standings. West Ham boasts an excellent record against the Clarets, as they have gone four without a defeat against their rivals. They have also won twice over that period, which includes a 2-1 success at Turf Moor in May 2021.
Burnley vs West Ham Prediction
Burnley have looked out of their depth in the Premier League over the opening months of the season, and it is hard to make a case for them this weekend. West Ham have dominated the previous encounters, and their return to winning ways before the international break make them the standout pick on Saturday.
