Last weekend they were humiliated at home by Liverpool, losing 4-0 at London Stadium, and they appear destined to finish in the bottom half of the table, barring a miraculous thumping of Burnley this weekend.

However, the Irons can still send their fans home happy if they manage to beat the Clarets at Turf Moor.


WEST HAM INJURIES


Winston Reid and Mark Noble are both likely to miss the final game of the season with knee and hernia injuries, respectively.

BURNLEY TEAM NEWS


Burnley do not have many injury worries, having already secured their Premier League safety.

The result of this match is unlikely to mean too much to Sean Dyche's men, but they may have to compete without central defender Michael Keane, who has been heavily linked with a return to former club Manchester United.

Keane is struggling with a calf injury, while Ben Mee could also miss out with a shin problem.

Dean Marney, meanwhile, is on the long-term injury list.
