Supporters’ Burnley away prediction revealed

Nearly 58% of Claret and Hugh readers predict West Ham will lose again today at Turf Moor against Burnley.

Just 20% predict a West Ham away win with the remaining 22% predicting a draw in yesterday’s poll of nearly 750 readers.

West Ham and Burnley have played each other 88 times since 17th November 1923. That first game in the old money division 1 ended up a 5-1 loss for the Hammers.

West Ham have won 37 games, lost 33 games and drawn 18 games against the Clarets since that game almost a century ago.

The Hammers biggest win came in 1968 when they defeated Burnley 5-0 at the Boleyn Ground with Trevor Brooking and Geoff Hurst getting two apiece and Martin Peters getting the fifth goal. Away from home, our last win came in 2017 when goals from Andre Ayew and Sofiane Feghouli ensured a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor.

West Ham have only won four times in 28 top-flight away matches against Burnley (D9, L15)

Burnley have lost three successive Premier League games, conceding nine goals.

The Clarets have won only three of their past 15 league fixtures (D4, L8).

Burnley have let in 18 league goals, with only the bottom three having conceded more.

Sean Dyche has lost only one of his four league matches against Manuel Pellegrini (W2, D1).

West Ham are winless in five league games (D2, L3). It’s their worst run since an eight-match streak between October and December 2017.

They have managed only three victories in their past 25 league matches played in the month of November (D10, L12).

Robert Snodgrass is vying to become the first West Ham player to score in three successive league matches since Marko Arnautovic.

  1. Thanks Sean – a useful piece – I remember a (relatively) recent game at Upton Park where we raced into a 5 goal lead and then Burnley (under Owen Coyle at the time) pulled it back to 5-3 and we were hanging on at the end

    I would be happy with us eking out a 1-0 win today and hanging on at the end
