Burnley bounce back in style
Burnley snapped a three-game losing streak in explosive fashion last week when they hammered Wolves 4-0 at Molineux in a rout that few had anticipated.
New Zealander Chris Wood was in inspired form in the Midlands, notching a sensational first-half hattrick that left Wanderers shellshocked, and the 29-year-old’s haul of six goals in his last six appearances makes him one of the division’s form players.
West Ham’s hammer blow
West Ham’s Champions League qualification dreams were dealt a blow last week when they were turned over at home by London rivals Chelsea.
The Irons have now won just two of their last six Premier League matches, and they will likely be a massive seven points behind the fourth-placed Blues by the time Monday’s contest rolls around.
Goals at both ends in Lancashire?
With Chris Wood in electric goal-getting form for the Clarets and West Ham armed with the counter-attacking pace of Jesse Lingard and Jarrod Bowen, Monday’s clash promises to be more entertaining than previous encounters between the Irons and Burnley.
The Clarets have found the net for seven straight league games, while West Ham have impacted the scoresheet in all but two of their last ten fixtures in the division, and bettors are advised to back both teams to notch again next week.
Our 1-1 correct score prediction tips the sides to share the spoils at Turf Moor however. The Clarets are tough to beat on their own patch, though they have drawn five of their last six matches at home, four of which finished level at 1-1.
West Ham have won only one of their previous four meetings with Burnley and they could be left frustrated again in their pursuit of Champions League football by their dogged hosts.
Burnley injuries and team news
Robbie Brady and Kevin Long are Burnley’s only confirmed absentees. Ashley Barnes returned to the bench against Wolves and he could be in line to start against the Irons as a result.
Wolverhampton injures and team news
Declan Rice and Michail Antonio are still out for West Ham, though David Moyes also has concerns over Jesse Lingard, Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku. Lingard is expected to shake off his injury issue to feature however.
