Last updated on November 9, 2019

West Ham United’s winless streak extended to six matches since they suffered a 3-0 defeat to a Burnley side motivated by gifted adolescent winger Dwight McNeil.

Burnley, who’d dropped their past three matches, went ahead in the 11th minute when McNeil swung into a deep corner, James Tarkowski snuck across the trunk and led to Ashley Barnes who dared to dwell.

The Clarets believed they had a moment in the 36th minute when McNeil whipped at a superb cross that Chris Wood met with a thundering header however into the anger of the home crowd, the VAR review found signs of off-side.

Burnley did double their lead, a moment before the break, and it was not surprising that McNeil was the supplier.

Jimenez was to blame for the third at the 54th minute, flapping at an Ashley Westwood corner that he was able to creep to his web site.

Nevertheless, the Spanish keeper failed to make sure that Burnley didn’t increase the punishment using a set of fine saves as Sean Dyche’s side threatened to conduct rampage.
