Burnley 1-2 West Ham: ‘Show’ by Michail Antonio to open the way to Europe

Burnley y West Ham faces were seen in Turf Moor with different objectives. Burnley, after a mediocre season, seeks to close their year with guaranteed permanence, although they will have no problems after the hard defeats of the teams from the decline. For West Ham, it is the opposite. A formidable year that they want to close with a classification to the Champions.


The game started with the style of play typical of both clubs. A Burnley defensive and waiting to mount the counter attack, while West Ham wanted to look for the few spaces that there were, and take advantage of the game by the bands. While West Ham was superior, it was Burnley who got ahead.

Already in the minute 19, Chris Wood threw from 11 meters after a penalty committed by Soucek, which attempted to amend a defensive error of Issa Diop, but ended up committing a penalty. Burnley would go ahead, but the joy of the local team would not last long. In the minute 21, Antonio would head a perfect center of Coufal, thus doing the 1-1. The Burnley would be shocked, and Antonio would make it 1-2 in the 29th minute after a cross from Benrahma.

The second half would not have much history. A Burnley who wanted to go on the attack but would run into the visiting wall, with a well planted defense and a huge Soucek. Also highlight the party of Fornals, Benrahma and Lingard, who were very active in the three-quarter zone, disturbing Nick Pope with your approaches.
