West Ham vs Burnley LIVE!

West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek scored his fifth league goal of the season to cancel out Burnley forward Wout Weghorst’s first-half strike and snatch a 1-1 Premier League draw against their managerless opponents at the London Stadium.

Soucek pounced to level the scores after a curling free kick by Manuel Lanzini glanced off Weghorst and into his path in the 74th minute to deny Burnley caretaker Mike Jackson a first win after they sacked long-serving boss Sean Dyche.

The result also denied 18th-placed Burnley the opportunity to close the gap on Everton above them to one point, heaping the pressure on the team with seven matches left in the season to avoid the drop to the Championship.

Burnley grabbed the lead shortly after midfielder Ashley Westwood was taken off on a stretcher following a serious right leg injury, as Weghorst rose highest to nod in a rebound after Jay Rodriguez headed on to the crossbar from a corner.

The visitors then squandered an opportunity to double their advantage as Maxwel Cornet dragged his penalty wide following a staggered run-up, having won the spot kick after a challenge by goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in the box.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope ensured that they did not leave London empty-handed, producing two superb late saves to deny Michail Antonio and Issa Diop as West Ham pushed hard for a winner.

FT: West Ham 1-1 Burnley

16:14 , Matt Verri

16:12 , Matt Verri

90+2 mins: Three minutes added on.

West Ham continue to pile men forward but it’s not going to happen for them the way it’s going. So many chances missed.

16:10 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Pope is keeping his side in it!

West Ham are on the charge, real pressure now. Antonio clean through on goal, just Pope to beat... can’t do it.

16:08 , Matt Verri

88 mins: WHAT A SAVE!

The home fans had started to celebrate! Corner taken short, Fornals whips it in and Diop’s header is destined for the bottom corner, until Pope somehow gets down to palm it away.

Ball was almost behind him.

16:07 , Matt Verri

87 mins: ANTONIO AGAIN!

He could have had a hat-trick this afternoon. Hammers break, comes to their strike and he blazes a shot at goal. Pope tips it over the bar.

Fornals into the near post, Collins heads it behind.

16:04 , Matt Verri

84 mins: Ball falls to Benrahma in the box.

He sets it outside the far post, looking to curl it into the corner. It doesn’t curl at all though and it’s well wide.

16:02 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Rice urged to shoot, doesn’t. Johnson urged to shoot, does.

Hammers fans might decide against doing that next time. Blazed high and wide by the full-back.

15:59 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Burnley’s turn to look dangerous from a corner.

Right on top of Fabianski, he palms it away and it’s then pin-ball in the box. Comes out to Cornet, onto his left foot but he drags the shot wide.

Fornals on for West Ham, replacing Lanzini.

15:57 , Matt Verri

77 mins: HOW HAS BENRAHMA NOT SCORED!

Rice works it onto his left foot, goes for goal and the block takes it perfectly into Benrahma’s path.

He dinks it over the goalkeeper, looks set to turn it in, but Collins gets back brilliantly.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:55 , Matt Verri

Set pieces to the rescue once more for West Ham, but they do deserve to be level. Antonio may be wasting everything in front of goal but he did well to race in and win the free-kick which led to that goal.

GOAL! West Ham 1-1 Burnley | Tomas Soucek 74'

15:54 , Matt Verri

WEST HAM GET THEMSELVES LEVEL!

Another set-piece, West Ham take full advantage this time. Lanzini swings it in, flicked on by Weghorst and just hits Soucek and goes into the back of the net.

15:51 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Johnson swings a looping cross into the box, Benrahma gets round the back and heads it across goal. Nobody there.

West Ham win a corner now though, Benrahma fires the cross in. Headed out.

15:47 , Matt Verri

67 mins: Weghorst leaves something on Rice and the pair square up briefly... each earn a yellow card for their troubles.

Frustrations growing for the home side.

15:46 , Matt Verri

65 mins: Moyes turns to his bench for the first time. Benrahma on to replace Vlasic.

He’s got 25 minutes plus stoppage time to make the difference. Bowen tries his luck from distance under pressure, poor effort.

15:44 , Matt Verri

63 mins: SHOULD BE 2-0!

Cornet gets in behind, cut-back to Rodriguez is perfect but he guides it wide. Fabianski wasn’t getting there had that been on target. Will Burnley regret these misses?

15:41 , Matt Verri

60 mins: Vlasic fouled and the Hammers have a free-kick in a decent position on the left wing.

CLOSE! Great ball in from Cresswell, Rice up well and flicks it just wide of the far post.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:38 , Matt Verri

Antonio really needs to be making more of these chances. He is doing everything right up until that final touch. West Ham have a great chance to stay in the race for the top four here and need their No9 - without a Premier League goal since New Year’s Day - to start delivering.

15:37 , Matt Verri

57 mins: Ball stood up to the back post, Antonio gets up and heads it across the face of goal.

Bowen tries to get on the end of it but it floats just over his head and out of play.

15:35 , Matt Verri

55 mins: Cornet has space 25 yards out, goes for goal... dragged wide.

The effort of a man desperate to make up for his earlier penalty miss.

15:34 , Matt Verri

53 mins: Burnley sitting deep in their shape, West Ham dominating possession but they’re struggling to find a way through.

When they eventually decide to cross it, Burnley’s centre-backs are there waiting.

15:30 , Matt Verri

50 mins: ALMOST!

McNeil with a terrible pass and West Ham pounce. Comes to Lanzini, he dinks a cross to the far post where Soucek is inches away from turning it home.

15:29 , Matt Verri

48 mins: West Ham with the early possession after the break, until McNeil gets caught late by Vlasic.

With Fornals and Benrahma waiting on the bench, Vlasic really needs to make an impact.

Back underway!

15:25 , Matt Verri

Second-half is up and running at the London Stadium.

More needed from the Hammers

15:22 , Matt Verri

15:17 , Matt Verri

As it stands, Burnley would move to within a point of Premier League safety.

Could the Great Escape still be on?

HT: West Ham 0-1 Burnley

15:11 , Matt Verri

The Clarets lead at the end of an eventful first-half.

Westwood stretchered off with what looked like a horrible injury, that left Vlasic in tears.

Shortly after that long delay, Burnley took the lead through Weghorst and they should have doubled the advantange... Cornet missed from the spot though,

15:09 , Matt Verri

45+8 mins: This half isn’t really going anywhere, think both sides would be happy enough to just get to the break now.

Bowen has been very quiet on the whole. When he has got on the ball, he twice went close to scoring. Pretty much the only time we’ve seen him though.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:07 , Matt Verri

West Ham are showing a lot more energy than they did against Brentford last weekend and are playing some nice football in Burnley’s half, but still lacking that last bit in front of goal.

After last week’s defeat Moyes said it was not time for Antonio to step up again. He was magnificent in Lyon but a goal or two would be worth far more than just a good performance today.

15:05 , Matt Verri

45+4 mins: We’re playing nine minutes of stoppage-time but it may well be more.

McNeil swings a free-kick in, Weghorst puts it back into the box and Cresswell is there to clear.

CORNET MISSES!

15:03 , Matt Verri

It’s an absolute disaster of a penalty!

He strolls up, stutters, waits for Fabianski to commit and then drags the effort wide of the post. Huge moment.

PENALTY BURNLEY!

15:02 , Matt Verri

The Clarets break so quickly from the corner, Cornet is beyond the last defender when he’s played in but he’s in his own half.

Sprint the length of the West Ham half, takes it round Fabianski and is brought down. Yellow card for the goalkeeper.

15:01 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Great work from Bowen to win back possession, ball into the box and Antonio puts it behind. Or does he? Apparently not... corner West Ham.

Swung in towards Dawson, but it’s just over his head.

14:59 , Matt Verri

43 mins: No real pace to the game at all.

West Ham having a bit more possession, but it’s mainly side-to-side on the halfway line. Johnson whips a cross into the box, Vlasic gets up at the back post, puts it back in.

Comes to Johnson, slices an effort well wide.

14:56 , Matt Verri

40 mins: Burnley corner, they’re well on top at the moment.

Swung in deep, too deep and Soucek is there to flick it away. West Ham can get up the pitch.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:54 , Matt Verri

West Ham simply didn’t appear to have switched on quickly enough after the delay. They had looked so dangerous before and while Burnley can be a threat at set pieces, Moyes will be fuming they couldn’t clear having twice had the chance to do so.

14:53 , Matt Verri

37 mins: Difficult for both sides to start again after such a serious injury, but it’s Burnley who have taken the lead.

Another frustrating result for the Hammers after a European match coming up?

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Burnley | Woug Weghorst 33'

14:49 , Matt Verri

WOW!

Burnley take the lead soon after the restart! Rodriguez hits the bar, Burnley stay on the attack and Weghorst rises highest to head home.

Back underway!

14:48 , Matt Verri

Up and running again at the London Stadium

14:45 , Matt Verri

Looks like it will be Josh Brownhill coming on, but the focus is on Westwood who is still receiving treatment.

He’s now being carried off on a stretcher.... everyone’s thoughts with him.

Horrible moment...

14:43 , Matt Verri

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:43 , Matt Verri

West Ham have physios also going into the crowd...

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:41 , Matt Verri

A long delay here for what looks a horrible injury to Burnley’s Ashley Westwood. Looks like his leg buckled from underneath a challenge by Nikola Vlasic, who appeared to be in tears afterwards.

14:39 , Matt Verri

22 mins: Play stopped here, Westwood has a serious leg injury.

Vlasic has dropped to the floor in tears after seeing what’s happened, he was closing down the Burnley man. Looks a really nasty one.

14:36 , Matt Verri

20 mins: Vlasic and Cresswell combine nicely on the left, before the full-back whips a cross into the box. Antonio and Soucek lurking, but it’s headed behind. Another corner.

Pope off his line to punch it out, Vlasic fires a volley back which is blocked. Burnley being pinned back.

14:33 , Matt Verri

17 mins: Ball stood up to the back post, Cresswell catches the volley so sweetly.

Bowen inches away from diverting it home, as it is Tarkowski just about keepts it out on the line. Corner.

West Ham have the ball in the net from the set-piece, whistle has gone though for a foul on Pope.

14:32 , Matt Verri

16 mins: West Ham taking control of this match now, seeing much more of the ball.

Big switch out to either wing is on every time too, which they’re making use of.

14:28 , Matt Verri

13 mins: Set-piece is well worked by West Ham, very nearly the opening goal.

Bowen has space for the shot - blocked. Comes back to the winger, great effort and Pope tips it behind for a corner.

14:26 , Matt Verri

11 mins: Hasn’t been the best of starts from West Ham.

Cornet and Rodriguez combine nicely, this time the former does get a shot away. Blocked though.

Hammers bring it forward, Cork with a terrible challenge on Lanzini and that’s a yellow card for the midfielder.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:25 , Matt Verri

This is a real chance for Nikola Vlasic to impress David Moyes today. The Croat has barely had the chance to get any sort of run in the side since his £30million move last summer.

This is his first start since early March and he has got off to a good start, teeing up Michail Antonio, though the striker duly wasted that opening.

14:24 , Matt Verri

9 mins: Rodriguez wide to Cornet, he can run at Johnson and get into the box. Soucek sticks a leg out to slow him down.

Burnley keep the attack going, cut back into the box and once again Soucek is there.

14:22 , Matt Verri

6 mins: Nice ball over the top and West Ham are away on the attack.

Worked to Antonio on the edge of the box, he finds space for the shot but then badly scuffs it. Not what he was looking for.

14:20 , Matt Verri

5 mins: Cresswell has gone down... that’s the last thing West Ham need.

Quickly back up though, just took a bit of a knock and he’ll be fine to continue. Hammers fans can breathe.

14:18 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Burnley enjoying the early possession, they’ll be desperate to make a good start this afternoon.

As Lyon found out though, having the ball agains the West Ham can mean very little in terms of result...

KICK-OFF!

14:15 , Matt Verri

We are underway at the London Stadium!

14:12 , Matt Verri

Tevez is out onto the pitch ahead of kick-off.... West Ham could probably still do with him to give Antonio a rest.

Here come the two teams, we are very nearly ready to get this one up and running!

14:07 , Matt Verri

Players will be out onto the pitch in just a couple of minutes.

Two teams with lots to play for, plenty of incentive to go for the win tonight. That should - big emphasis on should - make it a good match.

We will soon find out...

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

Jackson gives ‘update’ on future

13:50 , Matt Verri

How long will Mike Jackson be caretaker boss at Burnley? It’s not a question he’s too keen to engage with...

“I have been asked to take charge of this game,” Jackson said.

“I’m not being disrespectful, I couldn’t care less about the rest.”

Familiar face in town!

13:43 , Matt Verri

Moyes wants players to believe they are Europa League top dogs

13:33 , Matt Verri

David Moyes says he wants his West Ham players to believe that they are favourites to win the Europa League.

The Hammers have reached the semi-finals in remarkable fashion after beating Lyon 3-0 away from home in the second leg of their quarter-final.

“We’re not favourites [to win it], but I want the players to think they are,” said Moyes.

He added: “It is huge what we have done in two years. We have not won any trophies yet but we are trying to compete and to qualify from European football again, if we can. To be getting to these later stages, we have beaten big clubs that are used to European football.”

13:25 , Matt Verri

So three changes for West Ham. Fabianski returns in goal as expected, with Cresswell also back in the side as Coufal misses out. Vlasic also gets a start, with Fornals dropping to the bench.

Cork and McNeil return for Burnley, as Jackson makes two changes in his first match in charge.

Burnley team

13:17 , Matt Verri

Starting XI: Pope, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, Lowton, McNeil, Cornet, Cork, Westwood, Rodriguez, Weghorst

Subs: Stephens, Roberts, Lennon, Hennessey, Long, Brownhill, Barnes, Vydra, Bardsley

West Ham team

13:16 , Matt Verri

Starting XI: Fabianski, Johnson, Diop, Dawson, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Lanzini, Vlasic, Antonio

Subs: Areola, Fredericks, Coufal, Noble, Kral, Masuaku, Benrahma, Fornals, Yarmolenko

Hosts have arrived

13:11 , Matt Verri

13:06 , Matt Verri

Team news coming up in about ten minutes.

Will be interesting to see what Moyes opts to do. Will be some tired legs after Thursday night, so could we see a rotated Hammers side?

Big decisions for caretaker boss Jackson too - he hasn’t got much time to turn Burnley’s woes around.

Antonio’s drought

12:57 , Matt Verri

Michail Antonio hasn’t scored in his last nine West Ham appearances. It’s 12 without a goal in the Premier League, with his only goal of 2022 coming on New Year’s Day.

Maybe a match against Burnley will bring him back to form...

12:49 , Matt Verri

Much of West Ham’s focus for the rest of the season will be on their European adventure, with that seemingly their best chance of securing Champions League football next season.

But in terms of their domestic ambitions, yesterday was a good afternoon for the Hammers. With Tottenham and Arsenal both losing, they can close the gap today.

Victory over Burnley would lift West Ham into fifth, just three behind Spurs though they would have played a game more.

Stage is set

12:41 , Matt Verri

Ballon D’awson

12:34 , Matt Verri

David Moyes’s West Ham team is never about the individual over the collective, but there is perhaps one player who best sums up the group of players making history in claret and blue.

Craig Dawson was signed for just £2million from relegated Watford and has defied doubters to become a new Hammers cult hero who is being dubbed “Ballon D’awson”.

The 32-year-old was a colossus for West Ham in Lyon on Thursday night as West Ham stormed into the semi-finals of the Europa League.

It was not just his trademark header, which set West Ham on their way to a 3-0 win. Dawson was a rock for 45 minutes in the first leg when the Hammers went down to 10 men and, after a shaky start alongside Issa Diop without the injured Kurt Zouma in France, was a titan again in the second leg.

Jackson: Dyche sacking was a shock

12:27 , Matt Verri

For the first time in nearly a decade, Burnley go into a match without Sean Dyche as manager.

Huge call to sack him with just eight matches remaining - caretaker boss Michael Jackson has very little time to turn things around. The Clarets are four points adrift of safety with eight games remaining.

“It has come as a shock to the players, that’s human nature,” Jackson said.

“They are an experienced group, they’ve come together and now for us it’s about the whole club coming together, all the fans, and just bunkering in and concentrating on what we need to do.

“He [Dyche] has built the club but built a culture, an identity, and that is really difficult to do in football sometimes.

“The job he has done, you only have to listen to some of the interviews with other managers and his peers, to know what they think of him. It is sad but they should be remembered for what they’ve done for this club. I’m sure the fans will remember that too.”

Prediction

12:17 , Matt Verri

The Hammers struggled against Brentford after their European exploits last week and will surely be exhausted by their efforts in France on Thursday. That could open the door for Burnley to salvage a vital point at least.

1-1 draw.

Burnley team news

12:08 , Matt Verri

Burnley club captain Ben Mee remains out injured but will join caretaker boss Mike Jackson in the dugout as part of the temporary coaching staff.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also sidelined, while it remains to be seen when Erik Pieters will be back fit.

West Ham team news

12:00 , Matt Verri

West Ham have Aaron Cresswell back after he missed the trip to Lyon through suspension but Kurt Zouma remains out with an ankle problem that is threatening to end his season.

Ben Johnson should switch over to right-back with Cresswell slotting back in on the left of defence, while West Ham don’t have much choice over their centre-backs at present with Craig Dawson and Issa Diop needing to start with Zouma and Angelo Ogbonna out.

Retiring captain Mark Noble would be the option if David Moyes wants to rest either Tomas Soucek or Declan Rice, while the likes of Said Benrahma, Andriy Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlasic are all available to come in if a breather is required for Pablo Fornals or Manuel Lanzini.

West Ham predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Johnson, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio
