West Ham United Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC


When David Moyes and West Ham United travel to Burnley tomorrow night, they’ll do so with the high probability of at least a couple of key players returning to the fold. Having dropped their last two in the league, it’s looking like they might have to settle for Europa League football next season, unless they win out and get some help.

Even the UEL would be a massive step forward though, when you consider where the Hammers were last season, just happy to stay up. Let’s take a look at who Moyes may have in his first team.

Injuries have taken their toll on the east London side as of late, as we all knew it eventually would. However, getting Arthur Masuaku and Declan Rice back into the first 11 would really go a long way towards helping them get a result here.

Expect Moyes to go with as strong a first team as possible on Monday night.

It might not be the prettiest, but I think the London club will get a result here.

    Good luck Hammers. Have a safe journey . However I don’t think you will like Turf Moor tonight . It’s going to be cold and wet and Burnley will fight for their lives .
    You need to be firing or you will perish as many other London teams have done over the years .
    Have a great night in the valley of doom
