West Ham United welcome Burnley to the London Stadium in the Premier League this evening.

David Moyes’s side revived their hopes of survival with a shock win against Chelsea last week, but twice let a lead slip against Newcastle when another three points would have calmed any remaining fears over a slide into the bottom three.

However, four points still separate the Hammers from 18th-placed Aston Villa and a victory tonight would all but certainly secure their spot in next season’s competition.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Despite a breakdown in relationship between manager Sean Dyche and chairman Mike Garlick, Burnley continue to flourish on the pitch. Since defeat by Manchester City, the Clarets have amassed two wins and a draw, although a place in the Europa League is already out of reach.

Here is everything you need to know:

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 6pm on Wednesday 8 July at the London Stadium.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2, with coverage beginning from 5.45, and the BT Sport App.

What is the team news?

West Ham are largely injury-free, while captain Mark Noble may return to the starting line-up after missing out against Chelsea and Newcastle.

Burnley are still without captain Ben Mee, although Chris Wood is set to return to the first-eleven after a substitute appearance last week.

Predicted line-ups

West Ham: Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice, Noble; Bowen, Antonio, Yarmolenko

Burnley: Pope; Bardsley, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood

What are the odds?

West Ham – 10/11

Draw – 5/2

Burnley – 3/1

Prediction

With West Ham finally capturing form and still fighting to completely ensure their survival, they should have the quality and desire at home to outmatch a Burnley side who’ve performed valiantly but will be somewhat fatigued with a lack of depth to call on.

West Ham 2-0 Burnley
