West Ham will seek to put back-to-back Premier League defeats behind them and re-ignite the Golden Square challenge he faces when he travels to Burnley this evening.
David Moyes’ side lost 1-0 to Chelsea last weekend to lose more ground in the Champions League qualification race after losing 3-2 to Newcastle last weekend.
Chelsea’s 2-0 home win over Fulham on Saturday left the Hammers six points from the top four with five matches remaining, but the East London side could maintain their European ambitions by three points at Torph Moore.
Burnley appears to have secured their place in the Premier League for another season thanks to a 4-0 win over Wolverhampton last weekend, and nine points clear of relegation after Fulham’s defeat to Chelsea.

What is the team news?
Burnley may welcome Ashley Barnes back to the side for the first time since February after recovering from a thigh problem. The Austrian was on the bench against Wolverhampton last week but didn’t play, so he could be fit enough to play a role against West Ham. Johan Berg Gudmundsson is also ready for a comeback, but Kevin Long and Ruby Brady are still out of the squad.
West Ham is set to be reinforced by Declan Rice’s return from a knee injury. The midfielder has missed the past four matches after suffering an injury while on international duty with England, and the Hammers have been weak in defense since then. Arthur Masuako can return as well, while defenders Craig Dawson and Fabian Balboina will be present. Striker Mikhail Antonio remained off the field due to a hamstring injury.
Burnley: Pope. Lawton, Tarkovsky, MI, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Cork, McNeill; Wood, phaedra
West Ham: Fabianski. Koval, Diop, Dawson, Ojbona, Masuako; Rice, Soucek, Fornals; Lingard, Bowen
West Ham: 8/11
As Burnley flies after their 4-0 win over Wolverhampton last week, West Ham will be bolstered by Rice’s return and are desperate for three points to maintain their battle to qualify for Europe. Burnley would get them to trouble, but West Ham would have to have enough to win. Burnley 1-2 West Ham
