West Ham 1-1 Burnley LIVE! Soucek goal – Premier League match stream, latest score and updates today


West Ham turned their focus back to the Premier League this afternoon when they welcomed Burnley to the London Stadium, but they went into the break 1-0 down.

In their first match without Dyche for almost a decade, Burnley made a positive start with Maxwel Cornet leading a couple of nice breaks.

West Ham went closest to opening the scoring though, as Jarrod Bowen first had a shot blocked and then from the rebound was brilliantly denied by Nick Pope.

Midway through the first-half, play was stopped for ten minutes as Ashley Westwood received treatment for what appeared to be an incredibly serious injury.. Nikola Vlasic, who challenged the Burnley man for the ball, was in tears as players from both sides consoled him.

Shortly after the restart, the Clarets took the lead. Jay Rodriguez was denied by the woodwork from a corner, but the ball looped up and Wout Weghorst rose highest to head home.

The visitors should have doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time, as Cornet was brought down by Lukasz Fabianski following a rapid counter-attack. He stuttered and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way, only to drag his penalty wide.

Kick-off is at 2:15pm at the London Stadium – follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below…

Set pieces to rescue once more for West Ham, but they do deserve to be level. Antonio may be wasting everything in front of goal but he did well to race in and win the free-kick which led to that goal.
