Burnley hosts West Ham United at the Turf Moor in a match from the 12th round
Burnley hosts West Ham United at the Turf Moor in a match from the 12th round of the Premier League. We find it a great moment to take a look at this game in our English Premier League predictions. Let’s go!
Until recently Burnley were enjoying a place in the Top 10 of the Premier League, but three consecutive losses made them lose some positions and crumble down to 14th place. Now they are just 4 points above the relegation zone, so it’s time for Sean Dyche’s boys to start showing some efforts again, because their season could quickly turn for the worse.
In their last three matches Burnley faced Leicester City, Chelsea and Sheffield United, but lost against all of them. They also conceded 9 goals in these three games, which speaks of some serious problem in the way the team is defending. Sean Dyche is currently looking for sollutions, so this game on Saturday will show if he has come to any. He will has to do without the services of Chris Wood, Johann Gudmundsson and Danny Drinkwater, who are injured.
West Ham United are not doing much better. At this moment the Hammers are just one position above Burnley, being 13th with one point more. Just like their next opponent, West Ham are struggling – they have one draw and three losses in their last four matches. What’s happening with Manuel Pellegrini’s team?
In their last game the Hammers hosted Newcastle United at the London Stadium, but suffered a 2-3 defeat. Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass’ goals in the second half was not enough to take at least a point from this game.
In our English Premier League predictions we can say that Burnley and West Ham United are both struggling at the moment, so it’s difficult to make an accurate prediction. Of course, Burnley have the home advantage here.
