The Hammers are in desperate need of a win against the Clarets.

A win against Sean Dyche’s side tomorrow night would put David Moyes’s men in a very strong position heading into the final stretch.

Declan Rice injury boost

The 22-year-old midfielder is pushing hard to be fit for tomorrow’s clash against Burnley according to Sky Sports.

Rice has been out injured for the Hammers’ last four games. And we have really missed him.

 

Having Dec back for the last five games would be an absolutely huge boost for West Ham. It really would lift everyone involved with the club.

Burnley away tomorrow will be a huge test for the West Ham players. A defeat would be our third in a row.

That would really pile the pressure on heading into the final four-game stretch.

A win against the Clarets, however, and everything would look very rosy indeed.
