West Ham rule out Reid and Carroll for Burnley clash

Roberto Mancini odds-on favourite to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham

Roberto Mancini odds-on favourite to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham

The West Ham manager today confirmed that the club had exercised the option to hand Adrian a two year extension that will keep the goalkeeper at the London Stadium until 2019.

Burnley have won just two of their last 14 league contests against West Ham (D3 L9), losing each of their last three.

Given that neither Burnley nor West Ham have nothing much to play for, Sunday's game could prove to be a low-key affairs.

"As well as Liverpool played at the London Stadium last weekend I don't think the Hammers played with the same intensity as they did against Spurs recently and they may find it hard to get back up to that level of performance at Turf Moor", Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

Dyche will be sweating over the fitness of centre back Michael Keane, who has been linked with a move away from the club during the summer, and is now struggling with a calf injury.

However, Bilic was adamant his current squad have enough leaders in the dressing room who have helped with overcoming hard periods this season.

This season has been a disaster for West Ham.

The Clarets have successfully preserved their place in the top-flight for next season thanks largely to their form on home soil, as they have collected 33 of their 40 points at Turf Moor.

One Premier League side who wear claret have over-achieved this season.

"He played with pain (in) the last few games, then we chose to do the operation after the Liverpool game".

With one game left to go in the Premier League this season, the Hammers have not been as consistent and assertive as they would have hoped like last year's campaign, now finding themselves sitting in 12 place. They have also dropped the most in 2016-17 alone (22).

Slaven Bilic has said West Ham must make high-quality signings after they were linked with Manchester City's Kelechi Iheanacho and Pablo Zabaleta. West Ham now have got nothing to play for, they used their cup final the other week against Tottenham.
