Five points clear of fourth place Tottenham Hotspur, and with a game in hand on Spurs, Chelsea are fairly secure of finishing in the top four this season. Long eliminated from the title race, they can find additional motivation here on Sunday, when they battle West Ham United in a London derby, of spoiling other club’s Euro ambitions for next season.

The Hammers are still slotted in to make UEFA Conference League but remain within striking distance of usurping United to qualify for the Europa League. With that in mind, let’s cover the team news for this clash

West Ham United Starting XI Prediction vs Burnley FC

West Ham welcomes newly manager-less Burnley to East London and the Olympic Stadium in match week 33 of English Premier League action. The East Londoners are riding high after bundling the French side Lyon out of the Europa League at the quarter-final stage in midweek. The 3-0 victory over Olympique Lyonnais secured David Moyes and his men the Irons first major European semi-final in almost 50 years.

The Hammers will need to put European glory out of their mind as they look to finish as high as they can in the league. Last weekend they fell to a disappointing defeat to Brentford, they will look to avoid a repeat of that against Burnley this weekend.

West Ham United Team News vs Burnley: Ogbonna, Zouma

Fresh off of their Europa League heroics against Lyon, West Ham turns their attention to Burnley in Premier League action.

The Irons have fallen out of the top 4 race in recent weeks. David Moyes and his men have put all their eggs in the Europa League basket, and that seems to be bearing fruit. West Ham has qualified for the Europa League semi-final and must be considered one of the favorites. Should they win the Europa League, that would mean the Hammers qualify for the Champions League regardless of their league finish.

Olympique Lyon vs West Ham Team News, Starting XI Prediction

West Ham United stands on the precipice of history as they prepare to take on the French side Olympique Lyon in the Europa League quarter-finals this week. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, the tie is delicately balanced. The Hammers have lost their way somewhat in their chase for a Champions League place recently. With qualification for Europe’s top-tier cup competition via league position gone, all their eggs are in the Europa League basket. 

History doesn’t paint a pretty picture for the East London club. The three previous times they have gone into an away leg in European knockout competition, they have failed to record a victory. They have also failed to score on each of those occasions.

West Ham United Team News vs Everton: Lanzini, Coufal, Bowen

West Ham welcomes cellar-dwelling Everton to the Olympic Stadium hoping to keep their slim top-four chances alive. The Hammers are on a terrible run of form. They have lost four of their last six matches in all competitions. Their top four chances are on life support as they find themselves six points behind fourth-place Arsenal. The Gunners also have two games in hand. It is almost mission impossible for David Moyes’ men.

Everton finds itself in 17th place. Despite a victory in their Premier League match prior to the international break against Newcastle, the Toffees are firmly entrenched in a relegation scrap. Victory for Frank Lampard and his men is imperative if they are to avoid a historic relegation.
