Burnley vs West Ham Prediction
Burnley was decimated the previous game week by newcomers, Sheffield United. The former was on the road, and they had bid goodbye to hopes of posting even a single point even before halftime itself. One after the other, three goals were put into the opposition net by Sheffield, and that too without reply.
West Ham meanwhile could not employ their home advantage well the last match-day, as they were put to shame by a struggling Newcastle, who were desperate for points. But one thing that fans appreciated about the performance of the hosts was their ability to cut down the 0-3 lead of Newcastle to 2-3 by the end of the fixture.
This Saturday, both teams will be putting on a tough fight, as time is fast running out for either to get back on track. The winless run just cannot be allowed to progress further. Coupled with this desperation, are the leaky defense of both. Take note that, Burnley conceded twice or more in their last three match-ups, and thrice or more in three of their prior five home ties.
In the meantime, their opposite number let in two or more goals in five of their preceding six matches, and in their former three on the road.
In addition, nine of the previous fourteen h2h clashes, and five of the last seven at this venue had goals by both sides. These observations point to the possibility of the BTTS clause being satisfied this weekend.
In terms of result, the fact that Burnley will have the support and familiarity of the Turf Moor will come into play. Moreover, they are desperate for some points, and their counterparts are winless in their prior seven battles, and in their former four on the road.
As such, count on Burnley to avoid a loss at the least this game week.
