Premier League / Matchday 34
Turf Moor / 03.05.2021
End of 2nd Half
The final whistle goes and West Ham’s top four hopes are very much alive!
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.
Burnley win a late corner. Pope is coming up for it...
There will be three minutes of added time.
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.
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!
Bowen bursts forward and has his run halted by a Gudmundsson push. It’s a clear booking.
Burnley are repeatedly going long here in search of an equaliser that they scarcely deserve on the balance of play.
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.
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.
The brilliant Benrahma makes way for Bowen.
West Ham United
West Ham United
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.
Cresswell drills a shot across the face of goal, but it neither picks out the bottom corner nor a team-mate.
Still no hat-trick. Antonio controls on the edge of the box after another slick move from West Ham, but he shoots narrowly wide.
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?
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.
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.
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.
