Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that West Ham United will fail to win against Burnley this weekend.

West Ham will take on Burnley away from home at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Owen believes that Sean Dyche’s side will pick up all three points from the encounter against the Hammers and has predicted the exact final score.

Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley looks on during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at Wembley Stadium on August 27, 2017 in London, England.

“Burnley remain unbeaten on the road this season and they played very well, albeit against a disappointing Everton, at Goodison ahead of the international break,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

The Hammers continue to struggle for goals but did gain a valuable and much-needed home win against Swansea last time.

“A game I think that could go either way – although I don’t expect to see many goals at Turf Moor.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Under 2.5 goals at 4/6

"Michael’s correct score prediction: Burnley 1 – 0 West Ham.”

Need for win

West Ham’s start to the 2017-18 Premier League season has been disappointing, and manager Slaven Bilic is under pressure.

According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, former Watford boss Walter Mazzarri is among the candidates West Ham are looking at as potential replacements for Bilic.

The Hammers need to win this weekend, but picking up all three points against Burnley at Turf Moor is not going to be easy.

Playing at home is going to give the Clarets an advantage, and West Ham are going to find it tough.

However, if the London club are able to score the opening goal, then they could end up with all three points.
