The wins for Chelsea and Tottenham left the Hammers in sixth place and six points behind fourth with just five games to go.
They therefore need to recover quickly from a back-to-back loss, although Burnley is full of confidence after their Wolves 4-0 shot at Molineux saw Sean Dyche’s side end a three-game losing streak and s ‘deviate nine points from everything. danger of relegation.

Ashley Barnes could play tonight as the forward approaches a return from a thigh problem that has sidelined him since mid-February. Barnes was an unused replacement in last weekend’s 4-0 win at Wolves, alongside Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who is also expected to be in good shape. However, Kevin Long and Robbie Brady stay on the sidelines. Burnley’s Provisional Team: Pope, Peacock-Farrell, Norris, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Bardsley, Taylor, Nartey, Dunne, Driscoll-Glennon, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Stephens, Cork, Richardson, Wood , Vydra, Rodriguez, Barnes.
Michail Antonio was not ruled out by West Ham manager David Moyes as he battles his latest hamstring injury. Declan Rice is also on the mend from a knee injury and Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku aren’t far either. Craig Dawson is coming back from suspension and fellow defender Fabian Balbuena is available after his red card against Chelsea was canceled. West Ham provisional team: Fabianski, Coufal, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Noble, Fornals, Lingard, Bowen, Martin, Fredericks, Masuaku, Balbuena, Dawson, Alves, Coventry, Lanzini, Benrahma, Yarmolenko, Antonio, Trott.
After back-to-back losses, West Ham can hardly afford another mistake here in the fierce battle for a top-four spot.
Burnley himself was in bad shape before waking up to beat the sad Wolves and will be hoping for their chances of dealing another big blow to the Hammers’ Champions League chances at home.
We’re supporting a tough, low-scoring battle that probably ends square, doing West Ham no favor in the grand scheme of things.
