West Ham vs Burnley Prediction
Head manager David Moyes has to be satisfied with the recent performances. Not many teams managed to beat Everton FC at Goodison Park this season. The Hammers won that match thanks to the goal scored by Toma Souchek in the first half.
Club has also sold Haller to Ajax, netting a hefty amount of money, so don’t be surprised some new names in London during the next transfer window. The most productive player so far has been Jarrod Bowen with four goals and two assists.
West Ham have been very consistent when it comes to EPL appearances at this venue. They were defeated only once in the last eight duels (Man Utd took all three points), while Burnley won only one out of eight away days.
Even though the most recent form hasn’t been bad, we think Clarets will return home with empty pockets. Besides home win, we will also back the Under 2.5 option. Burnley’s six out of last seven games across competitions have ended like that.
