Video: West Ham v Burnley highlights

West Ham were due to kick-off against Burnley at the London Stadium 3 pm this afternoon before the suspension of football was announced.

In November 2018 The Hammers opened the scoring against Burnley when Arnautovic dispossessed James Tarkowski before racing clear and firing home before Johann Berg Gudmundsson slotted home to equalise just before the break.

The Hammers then retook the lead when the excellent Anderson curled a shot past Burnley keeper Joe Hart before second-half substitute Chris Wood’s thumping header hauled the visitors level again. Anderson, who was at the heart of everything West Ham did well, scored his second of the match six minutes from time, capitalising on some sloppy Burnley defending.

Hernandez completed the victory in injury time with a fine dinked finish which finished off a move started by Anderson in midfield.

It was a deserved victory for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, despite a winless October, the Hammers dominated throughout, slicing through Burnley at will, with Anderson the key player.

The 25-year-old Brazilian took more touches (103) and played more passes (75) than anyone else on the pitch, illustrating his heavy influence on the game.

He scored West Ham’s second, with a precise finish after being found in space by the excellent Grady Diangana.

And he claimed his second goal to restore West Ham’s lead, his low shot cannoning into the net via a deflection off a despairing Ben Mee.

He was also involved in his side’s fourth, it was his sublime cross-field pass that began the attack which led to the goal.

In the absence of a game, today watch the goals in the highlight video below:
