Match report and player ratings 👇
Antonio chips a teasing ball into the six-yard box... Pope takes control of the situation with a punch as Burnley scramble away the danger.
Tonight's man of the match Pope plucks it out of the air and smothers the ball. Burnley are almost there...
Bowen forces a corner, and it's a fine delivery but Burnley deal with it, although they have conceded another corner...
Brownhill is back to his feet after a lengthy stoppage. And there is going to be SIX minutes of added time to play!
Bowen's shot smashes into the head of Brownhill who goes down and must be dazed. He needs treatment.
- OffPablo FornalsWest Ham United
- OnAlbian AjetiWest Ham United
West Ham sub: Albian Ajeti is on for Fornals. A last throw of the dice from Moyes?
Time is running out for West Ham...
Save! Wood makes a clever run to latch onto a through ball. He is seemingly waiting for support but grows inpatient and fires a shot from inside the penalty area. Fabianski scurries across his goal to make the stop.
VAR has had its say... and the decision stands. Wood was just offside.
GOAL for Burnley... but is it? Wood turns Bardsley's cross into the back of the net, but the linesman has his flag raised. It's going to VAR...
Having stunned Chelsea with a hugely-impressive performance, West Ham then twice surrendered their lead to draw with Newcastle. David Moyes would have snapped your hand off for four points from those two encounters, but a home defeat to Burnley would be a huge step back. As it stands, they will remain four points clear of the relegation zone.
Play resumes - but not for long. Tarkowski is caught by a stray arm and needs treatment. He will be fine to continue. Having played every minute of the past 57 league games, he is Burnley's Mr Dependable.
Burnley win a corner, which Westwood sends deep. Fabianski is under pressure from Long but wins the free-kick. And now it's time for a water break.
McNeil finds Taylor on the overlap down the left. His cross finds Wood via a deflection but he scuffs it at goal, making it an easy save for Fabianski.
- Yellow cardRyan FredericksWest Ham United
Yellow card! Fredericks goes into the book for a foul on McNeil.
That man Pope... He has been outstanding today. Again.
Almost an immediate impact from Haller! From a long throw-in, West Ham's front man uses his strength to beat Tarkowski and then sees his shot denied by the foot of Pope!
- OffAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
- OnSébastien HallerWest Ham United
West Ham sub: Haller comes on for Yarmolenko. Can he inspire the Hammers?
- OffMatej VydraBurnley
- OnChris WoodBurnley
Burnley sub: Chris Wood has scored six goals in his last five meetings with West Ham and he replaces Vydra for the last half hour.
- Yellow cardJames TarkowskiBurnley
Yellow card! Tarkowski is booked for a high tackle on Bowen. That was quite reckless and he's fortunate it's only yellow.
A dangerous cross is searching for Yarmolenko but Pieters is there to make the interception.
Fornals works it into the feet of Bowen and he has options in the middle, but his cross doesn't beat the first man. It's been that kind of day for West Ham.
I'm surprised Haller wasn't brought on at half-time. West Ham haven't got any time to lose. He is fit again and must come on sooner rather than later. The Hammers have been toothless without him today. Antonio looks tired.
West Ham have been chasing Burnley since the restart. Not the start to the second period Moyes would have wanted. There has been no urgency from the Hammers.
Rodriguez's lovely back pass finds McNeil who delivers a low cross to the near post to Vydra but his shot is charged down and Burnley have a corner.
West Ham are unchanged in shape and personnel. They will have to be more ruthless to break down Burnley, who have won nine of their last 11 league games when scoring the opening goal.
- 2nd Half
Kick-off! West Ham get us underway, hoping to break down a stubborn Burnley defence in the second half.
- End of 1st Half
Half-time: West Ham have created much the better chances but find themselves a goal down at the break, thanks to Jay Rodriguez's bullet header.
Two minutes will be added on at the end of the first half.
West Ham are dominating, though, and force a corner. Bowen's delivery is headed clear, as the home side's frustration continues.
Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Co will be following this game with interest and they will be encouraged by the scoreline so far.
Save! Yarmolenko on his right, checks inside and fires a shot through the legs of a defender but Pope is alert to push it wide.
Moyes must be ready to pull his hair out. How on earth are West Ham losing here?!
Sitter! Antonio, in his form, must score here. He is released through on goal and with just the goalkeeper to beat, he curls the ball wide of Pope's far post.
- GoalJay RodriguezBurnley
GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Burnley (Rodriguez): Ah, what a fantastic header! It's a goal against the run of play. Taylor whips in a lovely ball from the left flank and Rodriguez gets in front of his marker and sees his header cross the line after kissing the crossbar.
Burnley's defending today has been admirable. Pope is just fantastic, but his defenders are always willing to put their bodies on the line. What Dyche's team lack in quality they make up for in heart.
Block! Antonio glides past Barsley on the left flank and finds Yarmolenko in the centre. He takes a touch and sees his shot charged down by a wall of Burnley defenders.
West Ham have had eight attempts at goal, but as of yet, have been unable to find the breakthrough. Burnley are indebted to Pope, who must be pushing Jordan Pickford close for the England jersey.
Another save! This time Pope gets down sharply to keep out Antonio's powerful and low shot.
Good save! Much better from the Hammers. Soucek makes a late run into the box and slips between two defenders to meet Frederick's cross. His volley, from point blank range, is stopped by the feet of Pope.
Possession stats read 50-50. It has been a scrappy affair so far, with a distinct lack of quality.
Manchester City, by the way, are already two-up against Newcastle in the other 6pm kick-off...
We're back underway. Again Antonio comes wide to receive possession. He checks inside and sees his shot blocked by Bardsley.
It has been wet and rather cold in London today. So I have no idea why we must stop for a drink. But anyway, that's the rules. At least it gives both managers a chance to try to waken their players.
It hasn't been a classic so far, in truth. Oh, and now it's time for a water break. Unbelievable.
Bardsley makes a fine sliding tackle on Bowen on the edge of the penalty area. Burnley break, with the ball switched to Vydra down the left. His end product is disappointing, though.
Patient football from Burnley, who are knocking it around very comfortably at the moment.
Bowen has acres of space on the left side of the penalty area but his cross is poor. Must do better there.
Over! Burnley clear the initial delivery but the ball is whipped back into the box and this time Soucek heads it well over the bar. Long is back to his feet and seemingly fit to continue.
Bowen makes a clever run but is blocked by Long, who has hurt himself in the process. West Ham free-kick.
Save! West Ham concede a cheap free-kick. McNeil's delivery finds the head of Vydra, who heads straight at Fabianski.
Pope makes a mess from a West Ham free-kick. Ogbonna puts him under pressure and the ball is scrambled around inside the Burnley penalty, but it comes to nothing.
Over! Burnley work a nice move down the left. Rodriguez releases Taylor and his cross finds Vydra who knocks it back to Pieters. He leans back and blazes it over the bar.
Antonio comes wide and does well to win a free-kick on the left flank. Cresswell whips it into the penalty area but it's catching practice for Pope.
Bowen, playing as a number 10 for the Hammers, makes a clever run through the middle but is crowded out inside the Burnley penalty area.
Soucek has been amongst the goals for West Ham recently and is clearly full of confidence, but the less said about his most recent effort the better. He's blasted it high into the stands from 25 yards.
Burnley are wearing a 'one-off' lovely white strip this evening. It has gone down well on social media. Perhaps they need to think about wearing it more often.
Burnley are quick out of the blocks and the lively McNeil sees his cross cleared by a West Ham head.
KICK-OFF! The players take the knee in the ongoing fight against racism and then get the match underway.
FIVE minutes until kick-off! It's West Ham versus Burnley, and it's NEXT!
You just never know which Burnley will turn up, though. If you ignore their thrashing at the hands of Man City, Burnley are unbeaten since the resumption of football.
West Ham, with their squad and the money they've spent, should not be in this position. But hey, that's life. They ought to be safe and another couple of wins will secure their status.
Burnley can move to within a point of seventh placed Arsenal with victory today; West Ham will remain 16th with maximum points but move seven clear of the drop.
Dyche has lost two of his better players in Mee and Cork - and there's not much in reserve. Burnley still have a slim chance of qualifying for the Europa League next season, but would they want it? Their squad is too threadbare and we saw how Thursday night football affected their league campaign last year.
However, the Clarets have won three of their last five Premier League away games (D1 L1), as many as they had in their previous 16 on the road (W3 D4 L9).
West Ham have only lost two of their last 14 home matches against Burnley and they will look to build on their impressive record this evening. Moyes seems to have found the right system at the business end of the season, with Michail Antonio, playing in a number nine role, shining brightest.
Burnley are unchanged as centre-back Kevin Long continues to stand in for Ben Mee, who may miss the rest of the season with a thigh injury. It's feared Jack Cork may not be available until next term either after he suffered an ankle injury.
Burnley's slim hopes of a Europa League spot were dealt a blow by Sheffield United in their last outing.
Andriy Yarmolenko makes his first start since November, with Manuel Lanzini dropping to the bench, as Moyes makes one changes to his West Ham side. Sebastian Haller returns to the bench after recovering from a hip injury.
West Ham twice surrendered their lead to share the spoils with Newcastle last time out.
