Here is our Burnley vs West Ham Premier League prediction for Saturday 14/10/2017
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.
Burnley host West Ham at Turf Moor with kick-off scheduled for 5pm EAT on Saturday, October 14.

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.
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
We predict a GG of one goal each
