Upton Park

West Ham united could give more chances to young players when they take on Burnley this weekend.

Three West Ham United youngsters have been photographed as they prepare for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Burnley.

Reece Burke made his top flight debut for the Hammers last weekend and he is set for a second start this afternoon.

The 18-year-old centre-back was photographed in West Ham’s dressing room ahead of the encounter in an image later posted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Alongside him were 16-year-old defender Reece Oxford – who was on the bench last weekend – and 19-year-old midfielder Josh Cullen.

The three teenagers could all be involved in the match-day squad this afternoon and it will be interesting to see how Burke in particular performs a week on from a very steady league debut.

West Ham are currently 11th in the league while Burnley are bottom, four points from safety with just four matches remaining.

That said, Sean Dyche’s side have caused many opponents a lot of problems this season so West Ham will not be taking anything for granted.
