Burnley are back in Premier League action this weekend, when they take on David Moyes' West Ham United at the London tomorrow afternoon.

Writing in his weekly predictions column for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson backed a comfortable 2-0 win for the hosts.

"The Clarets don't change, and they will make things difficult for West Ham on Saturday too but they have been short of goals on the road with just four in eight league games so far this season.

Lawro concluded: "I don't see them creating much here, either. West Ham have been playing well and they should pick up three points.

Meanwhile, Lawro's sparring partner for the weekend fixtures, You Me At Six dummer Dan Flint, opted for a 1-0 West Ham win.
