Team News: Burnley
Lyle Foster (depression), Hjalmar Ekdal (Knee injury), Michael Obafemi (Hamstring injury) and Nathan Redmond (unknown injury) aren’t available for Burnley boss Vincent Kompany.
In all likelihood, The Clarets should opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one with James Trafford, Vitinho, Dara O'Shea, Jordan Beyer, Charlie Taylor, Sander Berge, Josh Brownhill, J. Berg Gudmundsson, Zeki Amdouni, Luca Koleosho and Jay Rodriguez.
Team News: West Ham United
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, the West Ham United manager David Moyes has zero fitness worries to report before this game.
It’s our belief that The Hammers seem likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing Alphonse Areola, Vladimir Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Nayef Aguerd, Emerson, Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, Mohammed Kudus, Tomas Soucek, Lucas Paqueta and Jarrod Bowen.
Burnley will have to perform well to hit the back of the net against this West Ham United side who we think should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
Therefore, we predict a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for West Ham United at the conclusion of the game.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
