The big news for Burnley ahead of this game is that they've sacked boss Sean Dyche after nearly a decade in charge. He was the longest-serving manager in the Premier League and his departure comes with just eight games left for the Clarets to secure their top-flight status. 

A midweek triumph over Everton seemed like a platform from which to kick on and potentially secure Premier League survival, but a subsequent defeat to bottom-of-the-table Norwich has left them four points from safety and ultimately cost the popular Dyche his job. Under-23s coach Mike Jackson, academy director Paul Jenkins, Under-23s goalkeeping coach Connor King and club captain Ben Mee will take charge of the team for the West Ham game.

West Ham, meanwhile, are in a very different place having just reached a European semi-final for the first time in 46 years. The Hammers beat Lyon 3-0 in the Europa League on Thursday to triumph 4-1 on aggregate and will now face Eintracht Frankfurt for a place in the final.

A win in that competition could be West Ham's best chance of reaching the Champions League next year, because their odds of claiming the much-coveted Premier League fourth-placed slot are looking fairly slim. Last weekend’s defeat to Brentford was a slip that they couldn’t afford to make, and nothing but three points against Burnley will suffice. 

Here's how they line up: 

West Ham: Fabianski, Cresswell, Dawson, Diop, Johnson, Rice, Lanzini, Vlasic, Bowen, Soucek, Antonio

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Collins, Tarkowski, Cork, McNeil, Westwood, Rodriguez, Cornet, Weghorst

Neither side can afford to lose this game but for very different reasons. Find out how this one plays out by watching the West Ham vs Burnley live stream, and we will show you how below. Plus, make sure you don’t miss a game this season with our how to watch Premier League 21/22 hub. 

How to watch the West Ham vs Burnley live stream wherever you are

The West Ham vs Burnley live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBCSN, Peacock or another service and watch the game.

Canadians can watch the West Ham vs Burnley live stream on DAZN

Sadly, DAZN no longer offers new customers a 30-day free-trial period, so you'll have to pay the $20 CAD per month fee, although you can save a little by buying annually ($150 CAD). DAZN, if you're unfamiliar, has apps on every single streaming platform there is.
