West Ham clinch third win of 2015 with 1-0 victory over Burnley

West Ham United beat Burnley 1-0 at Upton Park this afternoon.

West Ham United clinched a vital win over Burnley this afternoon, with Mark Noble handing them all three points at Upton Park.

The Hammers had won just twice in 2015 before this afternoon's game, and that has put manager Sam Allardyce under pressure.

However, Allardyce is able to celebrate this evening after his West Ham team edged out bottom club Burnley with a slim 1-0 victory.

Mark Noble scored the winning goal from the penalty spot, after Clarets defender Michael Duff was sent off for bringing down Cheikhou Kouyate inside the penalty area.

West Ham continued to have the best of the game with 60% of possession and and 29 shots on goal, but could only find the back of the net once.

Burnley could only must two shots on target over the course of the 90 minutes, and that leaves them bottom of the table, eight points adrift of safety with just three games left to play.

For West Ham, the victory takes them into ninth place on 47 points, leapfrogging Stoke City as Allardyce makes one final bid to earn a new contract at Upton Park.
