Robbie Brady and Kevin Long are the only two Burnley players sidelined by injury, with both suffering from calve-knack. Sean Dyche is unlikely to change the team that did so well against Wolves, which would mean another start on the bench for Ashley Barnes, following his reurn from injury. Chris Wood, who scored a hat-trick against Wolves, will lead the line and could add to his tally in three goals in three games against West Ham at Turf Moor.
West Ham are without Arthur Masuaku, Declan Rice and Aaron Cresswell, and this game seems to have come a few days too soon for Michail Anonio, who is long odds to make the bench. Despite rumours to the contrary, Jesse Lingard is expected to be fit for tonight’s game.
Sean Dyche’s side are not yet mathematically safe from relegation and face a West Ham side still harbouring grandiose notions of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
A win tonight will take them up above Tottenham Hotspur into fifth place, three points behind Chelsea with four games of the season remaining. Kick-off is at the scurrilously late hour of 8.15pm but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.
