Burnley vs West Ham: Team sheets reveal probably alien abduction episode

The starting line ups are in and there are quite a few surprises as the in-form James Tomkins has been ruled out with a thigh injury (and replaced by the ever-dependable James Collins with youngster Reece Burke joining the bench). Mark Noble is back but Cheikidh Kouyate is not yet sufficiently recovered to challenge for a place on the lively Hammers side. Enner Valencia has recovered after his goalscoring heroics during the international break and will hope to continue his form for Ecuador with the Hammers. Kevin Nolan starts from the bench. 

Mauro Zarate has mysteriously been omitted from the matchday squad and may have become the latest victim of alien abduction at the Boleyn.

The decidedly psychedelic-sounding pairing of Kieran Trippier and Danny Ings are fit for Burnley. 

We reckon 1-3 as the away side impose their new found attacking prowess

and, of course, Sakho to go 6 in 6...


West Ham Utd: 

Adrian, Reid, Cresswell, Jenkinson, Collins, Song Downing, Noble, Amalfitano, Sakho, Valencia.

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Nolan, Jarvis, Vaz Te, O'Brien, Cole, Burke.


Heaton, Trippier, Shackell, Mee, Duff, Kightly, Arfield, Jones, Boyd, Ings, Jutkiewicz
