Burnley are getting positively battered lately, giving up nine goals in their previous two matches and four more today, as West Ham United doubled them up, 4-2.
The trademark defensive displays we had grown accustomed to seeing from Burnley last season have completely flown the coop. It took the tenth minute to sum up their struggles lately as James Tarkowski made a meal of a simple pass and allowed West Ham to dispossess him and score. The Clarets were getting bossed in the first half but were given new life just before the break as Johann Berg Gudmundsson was able to slot home a nice pass from Kieran Westwood. West Ham went back on top after the hour mark but Burnley weren't finished, getting another equalizer, this one via a header by substitute Chris Wood off the bench. Only seven minutes later though, West Ham went back on top for good, though Wood nearly leveled it a third time on 85 minutes, but another headed attempt bounced off the bar. Sean Dyche doesn't have many replacement options to go on his defensive line but Tom Heaton, former captain and leader of a defense that played much better than this, continues to wait for a recall.
