Match Previews: Burnley v West Ham United

"He is one that may play - he's in the squad".

Norwich fans... Can you see Ruddy making a move to West Ham this summer?

The month of March was one to forget for the Hammers as they lost five consecutive games.

On a positive note, Bilic has revealed he may give Declan Rice the nod for his first-ever Premier League start because of the injuries throughout the squad.

West Ham have recently been linked in media reports with City striker Iheanacho and full-back Zabaleta.

West Ham boast the bragging rights against Burnley in the battle of the claret shirts.

"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.

Michael Keane could return for Burnley's final Premier League game of the season.

Fellow defender Ben Mee is also a doubt with the shin problem that has ruled him out of Burnley's last three matches.

As for West Ham, the London club will be playing for pride, as it does not look likely that they will break into the top 10 of the Premier League.

The Hammers have won each of the last two encounters 1-0, thanks to goals from Mark Noble, though both games were at home. It remains to be seen whether the England global will line up for Burnley next season after being linked with a move away. Cheikhou Kouyate (wrist), Andy Carroll (groin), Michail Antonio (hamstring), Pedro Obiang (ankle), Diafra Sakho (back), Angelo Ogbonna (knee) and Arthur Masuaku (foot) are all set to miss out.

Burnley will take on West Ham at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
