Burnley’s chances of staying in the Premier League are in even more danger now, especially since Leicester City snagged a win against Newcastle United.
Leicester City has moved up to 17th with 34 points, which will make it harder for Burnley to climb out of the bottom three.
At the beginning of the game, Hammers forward Enner Valencia was briefly injured as he twisted his ankle.
However, Valencia was able to tough it out for the rest of the game despite initially limping off the field.
Nothing went right for the Clarets from the beginning, as defender Michael Duff received a red card about 23 minutes in for clipping Hammers midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate. Duff walked off the field and threw his towel in frustration.
Not long after this penalty, Hammers midfielder Mark Noble scored on a spot kick, which made Duff’s clipping of Kouyate a costly mistake.
The rest of the match was mostly quiet, although it featured a few yellow cards. Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton was forced to pay attention for the majority of the game as West Ham took 29 shots with seven of them on goal.
Heaton made five saves while Hammers goalkeeper Adrián only had to make two saves as those were the only times the Clarets were able to get a shot on goal. They only took eight shots altogether.
Burnley may have to win their last three games to ensure their stay in the Premier League. This may be doable since their remaining opponents include Hull City and Aston Villa, but they will also have to face Stoke City, who is in 10th place.
