Everton beat Manchester United to move further out of the relegation zone, but they will get back there if Burnley can pick up three points today.

West Ham v Burnley

here’s how The IndependentJack Naisbitt thinks today’s game is going to play out.

Both clubs are battling for points but for different reasons, with West Ham looking to cement their European spot and Burnley battling for survival in the Premier League.

West Ham have not lost in the league against Burnley in their last 3 games and the Clarets have not won away in their last 3 league games.

A narrow West Ham win looks the most likely. West Ham 2-1 Burnley.
