West Ham United's English midfielder Michail Antonio (R) vies with Burnley's English defender James Tarkowski during the English Premier League football match between West Ham United and Burnley at The London Stadium, in east London on January 16, 2021.

Victory would see the Clarets move 12 points clear of 18th place Fulham with just four games of the campaign remaining.

Sean Dyche's side are unbeaten in their last three home meetings against the Hammers - scoring six times and conceding just once in those games.

Chris Wood netted in all three of those fixtures and has now scored six times for Burnley against tonight's opponents in the top flight.

Another chance goes begging for West Ham

Antonio collects Lingard’s pass inside the area but the forward’s finish is just the wrong side of the post.

Rodriguez off-target

It’s a good leap from Rodriguez to meet Westwood’s corner, but the header is wide of the far post.

Brownhill is denied by Fabianski and Jay Rodriguez, inside the six-yard box, somehow manages to miss the target.

Matej Vydra makes way for Jay Rodriguez.

How has he missed?

Antonio has a golden opportunity to score his hat-trick, but he can’t adjust his feet to turn a Fornals effort home.

Benrahma drags a shot well wide for West Ham.

Half-time: Burnley 1 West Ham United 2

Burnley took the lead through a Chris Wood penalty, but the Hammers hit back. Antonio scores twice for the visitors.

Almost an equaliser

Vydra does incredibly well to get away from his marker inside the box and lift the ball over Fabianski. However, Dawson gets back to his line to head clear.

West Ham go within a whisker of a third

Benrahma shapes the ball towards the far post, but the effort drifts just wide of the upright.
