West Ham v Burnley: Predictions, Tips and Odds

After suffering defeat in Europe during the week, West Ham will need to dust themselves down for Sunday's Premier League visit of Burnley, but the Clarets could prove to be the ideal opponents for David Moyes' side.

It was a disappointing night for the Hammers on Thursday, as they were beaten 1-0 by Freiburg in Germany in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie.

With the return match taking place at the London Stadium next midweek, Sunday's clash with Burnley comes at an awkward time for Moyes and his troops, but the visitors are heading into the contest completely out of form themselves.

Burnley are without a victory of any sort since before Christmas and they have picked up just two draws and no wins from their last nine league games, a run that leaves them 19th in the standings and a full 11 points adrift of safety.

West Ham v Burnley betting predictions and tips

West Ham to win and under 2.5 goals - 7/2

After fielding a near full-strength line-up against Freiburg, it will be interesting to see if Moyes opts to rotate his starting XI for this clash.

West Ham have won their last two league games, scoring seven goals in the process against Brentford and Everton, but if the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paqueta and Mohammed Kudus are rested, then their attack will be severely blunted.

However, the Hammers should still have more than enough to see off a Clarets side who appear to be heading for relegation without putting up too much of a fight.

Vincent Kompany's side have lost four matches on the spin, failing to score in the last three of those against Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, while nine of their 13 top-flight away fixtures this season have ended in defeat.

Only bottom club Sheffield United have scored fewer league goals than Burnley's total of 25 and the Clarets could draw another blank on Sunday.

Four of the last six meetings between these two sides have seen two goals or fewer scored and that trend could well continue this weekend, but West Ham should have enough about them to ensure the points remain in the capital.

Tomas Soucek to score anytime - 4/1

When these two sides met in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor in November it was a closely-fought contest, with the Irons having to come from behind and rely on a 91st-minute winner from midfielder Tomas Soucek to take the points.

That made it two goals in his last two appearances against Burnley for Czech Republic international Soucek, who also grabbed an equaliser when the two sides last met at the London Stadium in April 2022 - a match that finished 1-1.

Soucek is a firm favourite of Hammers boss Moyes, featuring in 38 of their 39 matches across all competitions to date this season, making him a likely starter even if changes are made for Sunday's fixture.

The 29-year-old has nine goals this season, the latest of which came at Everton last weekend, and he offers good value at 4/1 to take his tally into double figures against Burnley.

Under 10 corners in the match - 1/1

West Ham boast plenty of aerial threats within their team and they arguably also have the division's best set-piece taker in their squad in James Ward-Prowse.

Opposition teams certainly know all about the quality that Ward-Prowse possesses from dead-ball situations, which may be one of the reasons why the Hammers have been limited in the corner department this season.

Only Nottingham Forest (100) and Sheffield United (89) have won fewer corners than West Ham's total of 111 and those two teams are languishing in the bottom four of the standings, while the Londoners are heading into the weekend in seventh.

Burnley also sit in the bottom half of the table when it comes to corners won, with both the Clarets and West Ham averaging less than five a game, a statistic that makes the 1/1 for under 10 corners to be awarded on Sunday all the more appealing.
