Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Monday’s football game between Burnley and West Ham will bring down the curtain on day 34 of the current Premier League campaign. The Clarets did well to crush Wolverhampton 4-0 in their last league match, with the team quickly bouncing back from a 3-1 loss to Man Utd. Burnley aim to move closer to the top half of the table, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Monday’s game. Defender Kevin Long and midfielder Robbie Brady should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Hammers, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea in the previous two league fixtures, with the team dropping out of the Champions League berth. Since the capital club are eager to return to winning ways, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Balbuena will have to serve his ban against Burnley, while both Rice and Antonio remain sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Robbie Brady):
Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who plays for Norwich City as a winger, but he is capable of playing at left back as well. Brady began his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where he was spotted by Manchester United scouts. In 2008 he joined the Old Trafford outfit at age 16.
He played for Manchester United U-18 team, but he did not make his debut for the senior team. The Irish footballer played for Hull City on loan in the 2011/2012 and the 2012/2013 Championship campaigns and in January, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut on 8 September, 2012, in a 4-1 win over Oman and it has to be noted that he scored one goal and provided two assists for his teammates in the victory over the Asian team.
He represented the Boys in Green at the 2016 European Championship finals and he scored the winner against Italy that helped the team make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
Highlighted Team (West Ham):
West Ham United are an English football club based in East London. The club was founded in 1895 and it has to be noted that the club’s name was Thames Ironworks back then. The Hammers were playing their home games at Upton Park from 1904 until 2016, when they moved to the Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
West Ham have won three FA Cup trophies (1964, 1975 and 1980) and they were runners-up in 1923 and 2006. The capital club finished the 1985/1986 England first division campaign in third place in the standings and that is the club’s highest placing in the top flight. West Ham United have strong rivalries with fellow London clubs, but Tottenham Hotspur are considered the club’s main rivals.
A number of top-class players were part of West Ham in the past and the likes of Joe Cole, Carlos Tevez, Paolo Di Canio, Paul Ince, Julian Dicks, Shaka Hislop, Michael Carrick and Slaven Bilic are some of them.
