Final-Time: West Ham 1-0 Burnley

And that'll be it.

Michail Antonio's 10th-minute goal is the only one we've seen today despite many great chances being wasted from both sides.

And in final words, my prediction has come right. This game was as good as my lasagna.
17:47a month ago
88' Instant impact!

Yarmolenko has been involved straight away.

First, his shot was blocked by Mee and seconds later he's had an effort cleared off the line by Josh Brownhill.

Unlucky.
17:43a month ago
83' Close again!

First, Bowen takes one touch too many and after a corner which followed, Dawson headed it to Rice who only managed to hit it straight at Pope.

Andriy Yarmolenko has replaced Jarrod Bowen for the Hammers.
17:38a month ago
80' A very good cross from McNeil nearly looped over Fabiański and into the back of the net but stopped on the crossbar.

Burnley coming closer and closer with each attack.
17:36a month ago
78' Burnley are now out in full force to try and nick a point there.

Good cross from Brady but again cleared by Dawson.
17:30a month ago
72' Another substitution, Chris Wood has been replaced by Jay Rodriguez.
17:28a month ago
68' Great chance for West Ham wasted yet again!

Bowen has done brilliantly to find himself in space but only managed to put it into the side-netting.

Benrahma, after a very positive performance, is off for Manuel Lanzini.
17:21a month ago
62' Two good consecutive chances for the Hammers again.

Firstly, Bowen took a bit too long to feed-in Benrahma and a minute later the Englishman's cross found Antonio, who shot it out for a throw-in.

Meanwhile, Matej Vydra is on for Ashley Barnes.
17:17a month ago
59' Declan Rice stepped up to take a free-kick after some good work from Michail Antonio, but it went just over the bar.

A very good strike nonetheless.
17:15a month ago
55' Well worked counter-attack from the Hammers ended with a corner, but it was well-cleared.
17:10a month ago
51' Chance!

After a great cross from Vladimir Coufal, Antonio had his chance to double West Ham's lead but Mee cleared his header off the line.

Pope was left with no chance.
17:09a month ago
50' After an early penalty shout for Burnley, the Hammers are already back on the front foot.

 
17:06a month ago
46' We're back underway.

Hopefully, the game will keep going the way it's currently been. 

Just one change at half-time, Dwight McNeil is on for Johann Gudmundson.

Half-Time: West Ham 1-0 Burnley

Chris Kavanagh blew the half-time whistle as the hosts are currently coming out winners.

Well-worked goal and a nice finish from Antonio after some shaky defending from Ben Mee and James Tarkowski the only thing separating the two sides so far.

Although Burnley could've had an equaliser, Chris Wood was offside in the build-up to Aaron Cresswell's own-goal.
16:48a month ago
45' Late pressure from West Ham ended with a good effort from Said Benrahma, but Nick Pope caught it well.
16:42a month ago
41' Gudmundsson tried his luck from range again and Fabiański safely caught the effort.
16:39a month ago
36' Oh what a chance!

A corner from West Ham, flicked on by Declan Rice at the near post and Angelo Ogbonna's header hit the post!

That could've been the game potentially wrapped up.
16:36a month ago

NO GOAL: West Ham 1-0 Burnley

The visitors thought they've had equalised through an own-goal from Aaron Cresswell, but Chris Wood was offside in the build-up.

Huge let-off.
16:31a month ago
29' Following the corner, Burnley have been very much on the front foot.

First, Ashley Barnes tried an overhead kick but didn't connect well with the ball. Seconds later Ashley Westwood sent a great pass towards Robbie Brady on the wing, West Ham couldn't clear and finally, Aaron Cresswell gave away a free-kick in a very dangerous position.

Brady couldn't get it over the wall, though.
16:28a month ago
25' Corner for Burnley, but Fornals clears well.
16:22a month ago
20' Nearly a good chance for the Hammers as they're piling on the pressure.

Antonio tried finding Jarrod Bowen but his pass wasn't accurate enough at ultimately intercepted.
16:13a month ago

GOAL: West Ham 1-0 Burnley

It's here and it's perfect!

Michail Antonio, the player to watch, with a good finish after a cross from Pablo Fornals.

James Tarkowski has to be blamed for it though as he let the cross go past him despite it not being too high for him to clear it.
16:08a month ago
7' And we have a shot on target!

Gudmundsson with a strike, Fabiański with the save.
16:02a month ago

Kick-off: West Ham United 0-0 Burnley

And we're underway!

Hopefully, this game is going to be as good as my lasagna. Two strong sides are out, so hopefully, we'll see a good matchup.

Player to watch

Having come back from his third consecutive hamstring injury of the season, Michail Antonio looks to be back in fitness as he managed 87 minutes in the Hammers' mid-week FA Cup 1-0 win against Stockport County.

And as David Moyes is looking into the transfer market to replace Sebastien Haller, sold to AFC Ajax, Antonio will certainly look to give his manager a solid argument that he's still the man to lead the team from the striker position.
