Slaven Bilic, Manager of West Ham United looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Swansea City at London Stadium on September 30, 2017 in London, England.

West Ham United are back in Premier League action this weekend, as they take on Burnley at Turf Moor following the end of the international break.

The Hammers went into the international break having beaten Swansea City 1-0 at the London Stadium, with substitute Diafra Sakho bagging a last-gasp winner for Slaven Bilic's men.

The Croatian remains under pressure as the Premier League returns, and he will be hoping to pick up his first away win of the season when he takes his side to Lancashire.

After the impact of substitutes Arthur Masuaku and Diafra Sakho means Bilic faces some tough selection dilemmas, especially given that David Gold took to Twitter earlier this week to claim that James Collins and Domingos Quina are the only players unavailable.

Bilic should stick with Joe Hart as his goalkeeper having been first-choice throughout the season so far, whilst Bilic must then decide whether to go with a three-man or four-man defence.

If he goes with four, then Pablo Zabaleta, Jose Fonte and Winston Reid could join Masuaku in the back line, after the Frenchman's telling contribution by setting up the winner against Swansea City.

Mark Noble and Pedro Obiang could edge out Cheikhou Kouyate in central midfield, though Kouyate over Noble wouldn't be a huge surprise either, whilst Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio could form a dangerous attacking trio.

The subject of West Ham's attack has been discussed to death this season, but Javier Hernandez should get the nod ahead of Andy Carroll, as well as matchwinner against Swansea, Diafra Sakho.

That could leave Adrian, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell, Kouyate, Andre Ayew, Carroll and Sahko as the bench, with Bilic having a number of options to choose from.
