West Ham can take a huge stride towards Premier League safety if they can beat Burnley tonight.
The Hammers have beaten Chelsea and drawn at Newcastle in their last two outings and are now four points above the drop zone.
They can now move clear of the bottom three when they host Burnley.
The Clarets are set for a mid-table finish this term and drew with Sheffield United on Sunday.

West Ham vs Burnley: Team news
West Ham will check on record signing Sebastien Haller ahead of the visit of Burnley.
The striker has yet to feature since the restart due to a hip injury but is now back in training.
Robert Snodgrass and Felipe Anderson are still sidelined.
Burnley are likely to be without Ben Mee and Jack Cork for the remainder of the season.
Mee’s thigh strain means Burnley have just two senior options at centre-half in James Tarkowski and Kevin Long, with the club apparently unwilling to bring in Ben Gibson from the cold.
Cork may need surgery on an ankle complaint and he and Mee join Matt Lowton and Ashley Barnes on the sidelines.
Chris Wood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady should be fit to start following their recent knocks.
West Ham provisional squad: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Lanzini, Bowen, Fornals, Antonio, Randolph, Johnson, Balbuena, Noble, Wilshere, Yarmolenko, Haller, Ajeti, Silva.
Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Peacock-Farrell, Jensen, Taylor, Tarkowski, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Dunne, Thomas, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Brady, Westwood, Goodridge, Rodriguez, Vydra, Thompson, Wood, Benson.
