West Ham vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
The Hammers are coming into this matchup after settling for a 1-1 draw against the Foxes in their last EPL fixture. Notably, they were at the verge of thrashing the Foxes at the King Power Stadium in this matchup but fail to maintain the lead. Eventually, two teams shared the spoils as the Foxes scored a late equalizer.
On Wednesday night, Pellegrini’s men received a 1-3 thrashing in the hands of Tottenham in their Carabao Cup Fixture.
We should see Pellegrini include Marko Arnautovic in their Starting XI. He missed the fixture against Leicester and must have recovered for the Saturday fixture against Burnley on Match day 11. West Ham are eager to climb to the top half of the standings and we should see them take advantage of this home fixture to scoop 3 points.
Burnley has lost their last two back-to-back games 5-0 and 4-0 in the hands of Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. This is demoralizing to the Clarets as they come into this away fixture. We can agree that Burnley are not enjoying a good performance in this season having won only two matches in the last 10 matches.
Perhaps, we can give them a benefit of doubt because their Europa League qualifying commitments at the start of this season must have had an adverse effect on domestic results. Even so, they have not come from this poor performance stand out as performers. They must do all it takes to bounce back to winning ways in this matchup, even if it looks hard to achieve.

West Ham vs Burnley: Prediction
The Hammers are hungry for revenge putting into account their loss in the last meeting. They will come into this matchup to win or if worse settle for a draw. We should see the Hammers take advantage of the fact that they are playing from their home ground. Moreover, they should exploit every chance to get the ball into the nest of the visitors, who are conceding in each of their last 3 games.
