The Hammers enjoyed one of the great nights in the club’s history on Thursday as they beat Lyon 3-0 away from home to reach the semi-finals of the Europa League.
But while David Moyes and his players will have woken up smiling on Friday, there was shock news out of Turf Moor as it was announced that Burnley boss Sean Dyche - the longest-serving manager in the top-flight - had been sacked.
The club’s Under-23s coach Mike Jackson will take temporary charge at the London Stadium for what is a crucial game in the Clarets’ bid to avoid relegation. Burnley are four points behind 17th-placed Everton with just eight matches remaining.

West Ham vs Burnley prediction
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.
