  • End of 2nd Half
FT

The final whistle goes and West Ham’s top four hopes are very much alive!

92' 

Bowen goes for goal from miles out as Pope races back, but succeeds in only pinging a pass straight to the back-tracking keeper on halfway.

92' 

Burnley win a late corner. Pope is coming up for it...

90'

There will be three minutes of added time.

89' 

Lingard smashes in a shot on the break and it cannons off Mee and Pope behind for a corner. The keeper didn’t know much about that.

88' 

Taylor’s cross with the outside of his boot is a peach and Dawson does well to nick it behind. Nervy times for West Ham!

87'

Bowen bursts forward and has his run halted by a Gudmundsson push. It’s a clear booking.

86' 

Burnley are repeatedly going long here in search of an equaliser that they scarcely deserve on the balance of play.

82' 

Fournals gets the ball caught under his feet after being set up by Antonio and his shot is blocked. There were three West Ham players wide open if he could have controlled that better.

80' 

Fournals lunges into a challenge and the referee halts play. That was almost a very serious challenge, but he just pulled out of the contact and it’s just a free-kick.

78'

The brilliant Benrahma makes way for Bowen.

76' 

This game isn’t safe yet, but West Ham continue to dominate. It would be a bit of a sickener for the Hammers if they don’t take three points home from this.

73' 

Cresswell drills a shot across the face of goal, but it neither picks out the bottom corner nor a team-mate.

72' 

Still no hat-trick. Antonio controls on the edge of the box after another slick move from West Ham, but he shoots narrowly wide.

70' 

Rodriguez rises highest to meet a corner and heads wide. Burnley are still in this game, will West Ham rue not putting it to bed?

68' 

Antonio skips in-field and goes for goal, but his shot is wayward. The rain is absolutely pouring down now, so keeping shots low could cause the keepers some serious issues.

64' 

How did Rodriguez not score!? Burnley almost bag a scrappy equaliser, with two efforts blocked with some desperate West Ham defending and Rodriguez slicing his second attempt wide when it seemed easier to score.

Burnley make a change to try and find a spark up top.

57' 

Cresswell floats a corner out for Benrahma to hit on the volley. It would have been a spectacular goal, but flies well over the bar.

55' 

He won’t get an easier chance to that. Fournals drags a shot straight into Antonio. He’s all on his own and only needs a good connection, but fails to make a decent contact. His wry smile says it all, that was the hat-trick chance.

52' 

Benrahma has been brilliant tonight but he can’t quite get his latest effort right and the shot skids wide.

50' 

Cresswell’s corner makes it all the way through to Antonio, but he can’t quite react quickly enough and his looping effort drifts wide of the far post.

48' 

West Ham pick up where they left off and carve Burnley open. It’s so close to the third, but Antonio’s final ball is slightly behind Lingard.

We’re back underway with both teams unchanged.

HT

That’s the end of a fascinating first half. West Ham responded to Wood’s penalty with an attacking onslaught and deservedly go in ahead, but at 2-1 this game is still very much alive. Catch you in 15.

44' 

Dyche is going to have to give this a real think at half-time, the amount of space West Ham have found out wide isn’t something they can be allowed to have again in the second half.

41' 

Burnley could be out of this game by now, but there’s still just a goal in it and this is not a team who will let their heads drop.

38' 

This time it’s Fournals who curls in a terrific cross, but Pope grabs it. West Ham are finding so much space in the wide areas, it’s really exceptional from Moyes’ boys.

35'

Out of nowhere Burnley almost equalise as Vydra somehow manages to get on the end of a bouncing long ball and flick a shot over the onrushing goalkeeper. Dawson keeps the Hammers ahead with a header off the line. This game has exploded into life.

34' 

West Ham are oozing class right now and Benrahma almost sets up another golden chance for Lingard. He can’t quite pick out the midfielder with his reverse-pass, and maybe would have been better off going for goal himself.

33' 

West Ham have turned it on amazingly well in the last ten minutes. The quality of their football has been exceptional and Burnley have had no answer.

32'

Oooh, so close to a third! Benrahma cuts inside onto his right and looks to bend a shot into the far corner. It’s inches wide and also inches away from being met by the sliding Antonio.

26' 

Lingard flits into space, picks the ball up on the turn and looks to open up Burnley. It doesn’t work this time, but the midfielder’s movement and vision is clear to see – he’s been a wonderful addition.

24' 

West Ham are running this game now. That penalty decisions seems to have sparked them into action and they are looking every inch a side from the upper reaches of the table.

20'

West Ham almost pull back level straight away as Fournals catches Cresswell’s cross first-time and smacks it straight into his own player Antonio. That looked like it was going in too.

17' 

PENALTY! Wood keeps a move alive and dinks back into the box, going down as he stretches for the bouncing ball. The referee immediately points to the spot and VAR upholds the decision.

14' 

The Hammers are growing into this game and Coufal twice finds space to get crosses in, but neither picks out a West Ham player.

12' 

West Ham break and are a given a second chance when Burnley fail to clear Antonio’s low cross. The ball breaks to Lanzini and he looks to curl a shot into the far top corner, but he can’t quite get it to dip in time.

11' 

The tempo is high but it’s not been a match of the highest quality so far. The conditions aren’t helping, although they aren’t quite as bad as what the West Brom and Wolves players experienced in the early kick-off.

8' 

McNeil tries to get a cross in on the overlap, but it’s blocked and deflects back off the Burnley man and behind. You can see what the plan is from the home side though.

6' 

Antonio has a pop from range, but his speculative effort skews well wide.

4' 

Burnley have had the better of the early exchanges at Turf Moor, looking to go quite aerial in the wet and windy conditions that are covering much of the UK this evening.

 

Just a reminder that there won’t be any social media embeds in this live tonight due to the boycott, which Eurosport are firmly a part of. This article explains a bit more about Eurosport’s position and stance on a huge and important issue.

1'

West Ham, kitted out in their black and dark brown away strip, get the game underway. Burnley are in claret and white as usual.

 

But back to Turf Moor and the players are out and ready for kick-off.

 

But for West Ham it’s a bit of an interesting one selection-wise. Michail Antonio and Aaron Cresswell both start despite reports that they would be unavailable through injury. Jarrod Bowen, Angelo Ogbonna, Mark Noble, Fabian Balbuena and Ryan Fredericks all lose their starting places. You can’t accuse Moyes of not acting, it’s now or never for his top four hopes I guess.

 

Burnley are unsurprisingly unchanged from the XI that started against Wolves. Sean Dyche will be looking for more of the same from his boys.

 

This game could have been much more significant for Burnley were it not for their 4-0 demolition of Wolves last time out. Those three points means that the Clarets are almost safe, and a win tonight would move them 12 points clear of Fulham and with a better goal difference, all-but sealing their Premier League status.

This is a huge game for West Ham’s European qualification ambitions. David Moyes has steered the Hammers into contention for a top four finish, but back-to-back losses (including a crucial defeat to Chelsea) means they’ve slipped to sixth. This is effectively their game in hand, and a win tonight would move West Ham back above Tottenham and within three points of Chelsea with four games remaining. Anything other than a win would leave those hopes of Champions League football hanging by a thread.
