Burnley vs West Ham Premier League prediction 14/10/2017

Here is our Burnley vs West Ham Premier League prediction for Saturday 14/10/2017

Slaven Bilic is looking to make it two Premier League wins on the trot for West Ham as they face Burnley on Saturday.

The Hammers secured a vital late 1-0 win against Swansea at the London Stadium before the international break to give Bilic breathing space, but Sean Dyche’s in-form Burnley are up next.

The Clarets have started the campaign well with wins at Chelsea and Everton along with draws at Tottenham and Liverpool to leave them sixth in the table – and a real threat to Bilic’s Hammers.

Start time

Burnley host West Ham at Turf Moor with kick-off scheduled for 5pm EAT on Saturday, October 14.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be not be televised or shown live online in the UK and on SuperSport DSTV worldwide.

Team news

Burnley remain without Jonathan Walters, Nahki Wells and Dean Marney for Saturday.

Marney, out since January with knee ligament damage, and recent arrival Wells (foot) are being phased into the Under-23 set-up to continue rehabilitation but are still some way from fitness.

Walters is several weeks away with a knee problem, leaving Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes to contest the attacking roles.

Provisional squad: Pope, Lindegaard, Lowton, Long, Mee, Taylor, Ward, Tarkowski, Bardsley, Defour, Brady, Ulvestad, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, Arfield, Gudmundsson, Vokes, Barnes, Wood.

James Collins is West Ham’s only absentee. He suffered an ankle injury in last month’s 0-0 draw at West Brom, and though he will soon be available, Saturday’s fixture comes too early.

With Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes again in full training, manager Slaven Bilic’s only concern surrounds whether Javier Hernandez is sufficiently fresh to start following his return on Thursday from international duty with Mexico.

Team from: Hart, Adrian, Byram, Zabaleta, Cresswell, Masuaku, Fonte, Reid, Obiang, Rice, Fernandes, Antonio, Noble, Lanzini, Kouyate, Ogbonna, Arnautovic, Ayew, Carroll, Hernandez, Sakho.

Predicted line-ups

Burnley starting XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Brady, Defour, Cork, Arfield, Hendrick, Wood

West Ham starting XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Fonte, Reid, Cresswell, Obiang, Kouyate, Antonio, Lanzini, Hernandez, Carroll
