Our prediction for this Premier League match:
West Ham United and Burnley go head to head at Olympic Stadium in what is expected to be an exciting game. The Hammers did well to beat Everton on the road in their last league match, with the team eliminating Stockport in the FA Cup at the weekend. The capital club aim to retain their spot in top ten, and bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s football game. Masuaku should be the only absentee in the home team, with Bowen, Cresswell, and Soucek pushing for a start.
The Clarets suffered a 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Tuesday evening, with the team remaining in the danger zone in the Premier League standings. Since Burnley have been struggling on the travels in the first half of the season, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling West Ham’s party in London. Dunne should be fit to face the Hammers, while Taylor is rated doubtful for the match.
Highlighted Player (Andriy Yarmolenko):
Arguably the most exciting Ukrainian player at the moment, Andriy Yarmolenko is the 26-year-old forward, who can play wide as a winger and fill in numerous positions in attack. Over the past few years there has been a gathering feeling that the player has outgrown the Ukrainian League and that with the player surpassing the 200-game mark for Dynamo Kyiv Yarmolenko should be heading west to Europe’s brighter stage.
Wanted and scouted by Spanish giants Barcelona, Yarmolenko attracted interest from many other clubs, predominantly from the Premier League, and was even close to joining Everton in summer 2016, but the Goodison outfit’s offer came too late to the Ukrainian club.
Talented forward is a free-scoring machine who has already scored more than 115 goals for the club he spent his entire career with. The two-footed winger is equally adept through the middle and is a versatile force that would be a good addition to any self-respecting European side.
Yarmolenko made hi Ukraine debut in 2009 and has so far been capped 63 times, during which he scored 26 goals for the national set-up.
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.
