Burnley 0-0 West Ham: Stalemate as Hammers miss chance to move further clear in fourth


West Ham missed the chance to cement their spot in the top four after being held 0-0 by Burnley, who still only have one win to their name this season.

Starting the day fourth but level on points with Manchester United, this was a chance to pull three points clear of their top-four rivals but quality in forward areas was lacking from the Hammers.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope was only called upon to make three saves but was in top form to deny Issa Diop, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen while quelling West Ham’s threat from set-pieces with some outstanding catches under pressure.

Burnley failed to threaten but did almost nick a winner when Jay Rodriguez couldn’t turn home Charlie Taylor’s cross as the game ticked into stoppage time.

They remain in 18th place after their eighth draw of the season but are just two points off Watford with a game in hand.
