West Ham’s Champions League challenge takes them to Burnley on Monday night with David Moyes’ side aiming to overhaul Chelsea.

The Hammers have slipped off the pace in recent weeks but the experienced Moyes is determined to keep on track for at least a Europa League spot.

The former Everton boss is boosted by some important returns at the back, with Aaron Cresswell and Craig Dawson both passed fit, and Fabian Balbuena available after his suspension was dismissed by the Premier League.

However, key pair Declan Rice and Michail Antonio are still sidelined but Manuel Lanzini could return to boost their attack.

And ultimate creature of habit Sean Dyche is set to stay unchanged from last weekend 4-0 battering of Wolves.

Meaning Jay Rodriguez and Ashley Barnes should remain on the bench with Irish international Robbie Brady out of action for the rest of the season.

And this one kicks off with an 8.15pm start on Monday night at Turf Moor.
