Hammer wary of Burnley shock

Hammers goalkeeper Darren Randolph is preparing for a tough fixture against Burnley this weekend should Lukasz Fabianski be unavailable after suffering a small injury problem.

The Republic of Ireland international has deputised in the absence of our No 1 in the past two games and given that he has written in the official programme there has to be a possibility of him appearing..

He has kept a clean sheet in each , against Everton in the Premier League and Stockport County in the FA Cup.

He is wary of this weekend’s clash with Sean Dyche’s side, who are scrapping for their lives at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Dyche’s outfit are 16th, though they are five points clear of Fulham in 18th; Scott Parker’s side play Spurs tonight (Wednesday).

And the Irons’ stopper has drawn a comparison between the Hammers beating Everton and Burnley potentially putting David Moyes’ side down.

He has told the matchday programme::

“We’re in a great position in the Premier League points-wise and we’ve had a very good start.

“It might be easy to look at certain fixtures on paper and put them down as wins, but teams like Burnley and West Brom are not just going to roll over and give us three points, as they are fighting their own battles down the bottom.

“On the flip side, Everton probably thought they would turn up against us and get the win, but it didn’t play out that way and that’s not how the Premier League works.”

Following their clash with the Clarets, the Hammers face fellow strugglers West Brom – winning both could potentially move the Irons into top-four contention if other results go their way.

One comment on “Hammer wary of Burnley shock

  1. Burnley played really well against ManU. They were organized and settled into defending after a very aggressive start. Nearly equalized once they were behind. Expect them to be aggressive in our match too.
    Refereeing and VAR were hopeless. Let’s hope for better.
