At last…Hammers get positive vibe

At last…Hammers get positive vibe

Just for this weekend no doubt, Chris Sutton fancies the Irons and with Burnley as the visitors that’s no big surprise!

At last…Hammers get positive vibe

It’s been weeks since he did anything other than tip the Hammers to lose but the Clarets represent a different proposition of course and he makes it clear as far as he is concerned they are down.

It’s very likely that Moyes will change the team to include the likes of Ben Johnson, Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna and Danny Ings but that remains to be seen and Sutton is making no predictions.

However, he – like all pundits – is declaring his love for the manager after complaints from the fans about the Moyes style of play.

But the fans will be wanting to see the Clarets well beaten with the team very much on the front foot or the moans which Sutton complains about will go on and on.

Writing in his BBC website he says: ” Burnley are down as far as I am concerned. As a team they are pretty, but without a lot of punch.

West Ham fans have been moaning they are bored with ‘Moyes-ball’ but their team has scored seven goals in their past two games to just ram down how well it works.

I am delighted for David Moyes that he got those wins over Brentford and Everton to lift his side back up to seventh.

The Hammers travelled to Germany on Thursday in the Europa League so I am not sure how Moyes will manage his squad over the next few days. On that basis I’d usually quite fancy Burnley to get a point but, defensively, I don’t see them holding out.”

Sutton’s prediction: 2-0
