It is a clash of the claret and blues as Burnley welcome West Ham to a very cold Turf Moor today. Both teams really need a win, but they have rather different ambitions for the season — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Despite Everton’s 10-point deduction, Burnley remain rooted to the bottom of the table going into this round of fixtures and their chances of staying in the top-tier are evaporating. They concede far too many goals – 30 so far in 12 league games – and do not have the attacking prowess to make up for it. Illness and injury mean Arijanet Muric and Jack Cork are not available for the home side; striker Lyle Foster is away on an extended break.
West Ham's James Ward-Prowse has the ability to expose his opponent’s defensive vulnerabilities. However, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio are both out with injuries. David Moyes’ boys bounced back from a poor run of results to get a 3-2 victory against Nottm Forest last time out – another victory is vital as they look to secure European football once again.
Here's how they line up:
Burnley: Trafford, Vitinho, O'Shea, Beyer, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Berge, Brownhill, Koleosho, Amdouni, Rodriguez
West Ham: Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson, Alvarez, Ward-Prowse, Kudus, Soucek, Paqueta, Ings
