West Ham vs Burnley 10 March 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

West Ham United v Burnley- Premier League

There are no fewer than 12 or 13 teams now fighting to preserve their Premier League status, with nine points separating 9th placed Watford from the drop zone, with only West Bromwich Albion starting to get cut adrift.

Defenders Sam Byram and Winston Reid are injured, whilst James Collins and Angelo Ogbonna are also doubts. Arthur Masuaku will serve the last game of his six-match ban for spitting while Andy Carroll and Pedro Obiang missing out as well.

While the Hammers have struggled on the road, their home form under Moyes has kept them out of the mire with a solid record of W3 D4 L1. An even uglier loss for West Ham.

Chelsea hosts Crystal Palace in the late game Saturday. The Hammers will be desperate for a reaction to recent results in front of their own fans but if they fail to start the game well, the crowd could quickly turn on the home team. After conceding 54 goals in 29 games, David Moyes' side now have the worst defensive record in the league.

Chris Wood came on to set up Barnes' goal and the New Zealand global added a brace of his own, each strike prompting additional ugly scenes, with some young children taking refuge on the Burnley bench to apparently escape unrest in the stands.

Burnley's focus on basing their game plan around a clean sheet - and their success at doing so - makes them the league leaders for games with under 2.5 goals (76%, 22 out of 29). Two consecutive 4-1 defeats suggest that their problems are deepening and David Moyes must now stop the flow of goals which are hurting his side.

A West Ham statement said: "West Ham United have immediately launched a full and thorough investigation into the incidents which marred the second half of today's match and are committed to taking decisive and appropriate action".

"There's going to be more pressure on them than there is on most of those teams at the bottom because there's newly promoted teams and there's teams that aren't seen as (being) as good as West Ham".

West Ham have endured plenty of bad publicity away from the pitch this season, however, yet more bad news fell into the club's lap earlier this week.

West Ham have won five of their seven Premier League meetings with Burnley and 12 out of 16 top-flight fixtures.
