Our football match prediction:
West Ham United proved their worth in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield. Michail Antonio scored on his return to the starting line-up and he helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. The Hammers are now on a quest to start a new winning run in the national championship as they recorded their last league win back on October 22 (Sunderland). The capital club are just one point clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 16 and, no doubt, Wednesday’s football match against Burnley is of big importance for the hosts. The Clarets recorded a very important 3-2 win over Bournemouth at the weekend, but their away performances leave a lot to be desired. Burnley failed to score in five of their previous six away games and we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. Dimitri Payet scored a wonder goal in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Andre Ayew):
Andre Ayew is Ghanaian footballer who plays for Premier League side West Ham United as a winger. Ayew played for Olympique Marseille from 2007 to 2015 and he scored 44 goals in 160 appearances for the Stade Velodrome outfit. He won two Coupe de la Ligue trophies with Marseille (2011, 2012), but he failed to clinch the Ligue 1 title with OM. In 2015 Andre Ayew joined Swansea City on a free transfer and it has to be noted that he scored 12 goals in 34 league appearances for the South Wales outfit. At the end of the season the Ghanaian footballer signed a three-year deal with fellow Premier League team West Ham United for a club record fee of £20.5 million. Andre Ayew won the FIFA U-20 World Cup with Ghana and he participated in the Africa Cup of Nations final on two occasions with the Ghanaian national football team (2010, 2015). However, he failed to win the prestigious trophy with the Black Stars. His brother Jordan Ayew plays for Aston Villa as a striker.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
