West Ham United vs Burnley: The Clarets begin life without Sean Dyche at the London Stadium

Burnley take on West Ham United in their first game since the departure of long-serving manager Sean Dyche.

The Clarets chief’s tenure at Turf Moor came to an end on Good Friday after a nine-and-a-half-year spell at the helm.

Dyche, who had overseen six successive seasons in the top flight, was joined by assistant manager Ian Woan, first team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer.
