West Ham must try to refocus their efforts on Premier League matters this afternoon as they battle relegation-threatened Burnley.

David Moyes’ side are on cloud nine after another epic European night on Thursday, with goals from Craig Dawson, Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen brushing aside Lyon 3-0 in France to secure a 4-1 aggregate victory and tee up a huge Europa League semi-final showdown with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The visit of Burnley to London Stadium may feel a bit after the lord mayor's show, but Moyes will demand 100 per cent commitment once more as West Ham look to stay in the thick of the race for a top-six finish this season.

Burnley are four points adrift of safety after a damaging defeat by rock-bottom Norwich and on Friday announced the surprise sacking of the Premier League’s longest-serving manager Sean Dyche after 10 years and with only eight matches left to play this term.

The good news for West Ham is the return of left-back Aaron Cresswell, who missed the memorable triumph over Lyon due to suspension following his controversial red card in the first leg. Declan Rice spoke of how much motivation Moussa Dembele, who got Cresswell sent-off, gave the Hammers.

However, Kurt Zouma remains sidelined with the ankle injury suffered against Brentford last weekend that it is feared could keep him out for the remainder of the campaign.

Angelo Ogbonna could yet return this season, but is still out for now as he works his way back from knee surgery performed before Christmas.

Moyes had made three changes after Thursday’s European exploits, but he will be wary of changing too much as West Ham look to keep momentum up and fight for that top-six finish.

Ben Johnson misses out as Cresswell comes back in on the left of defence, while Lukasz Fabianski starts in goal as expected. Nikola Vlasic comes in as Pablo Fornals gets a breather.

The continued absence of any direct competition means Michail Antonio continues to lead the attack on Sunday.

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

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