For the first time since 1976, West Ham will be competing in the semi-finals of a European competition after beating Lyon 4-1 on aggregate in the Europa League quarter-finals.

After drawing the first leg 1-1 on home soil last week, goals from Craig DawsonDeclan Rice and Jarrod Bowen helped the Hammers secure an impressive 3-0 second-leg win in the South of France, and they will now face Eintracht Frankfurt in the last four later this month.

David Moyes has praised the club’s rapid rise from battling to avoid relegation in 2019-20 to the cusp of a European final and the prospect of Champions League football next season. The Scotsman has denied that the Hammers are the favourites to win the Europa League but has urged his players to believe they can go all the way.

West Ham’s best chance of Champions League qualification could be via success in the Europa League, as their inconsistent domestic form has seen them slip away from the top four. The Hammers have alternated between victory and defeat in their last six matches, with their most recent loss coming at the hands of Brentford, who won 2-0 last weekend.

Moyes’s men currently sit sixth in the table, six points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth, who have played a game fewer. Fifth-placed Arsenal, meanwhile, have played two games fewer than the Hammers and are three points ahead.

West Ham have had mixed success against Burnley in recent seasons and have failed to score in five of their last eight Premier League games against them. The Hammers are, however, one of only two teams, along with Liverpool, to have scored in every top-flight home match this season.

With challenging fixtures against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City still to come this term, Moyes and co will be keen to take advantage of Sunday’s favourable-looking encounter with a side battling for survival.

West Ham are set to be without centre-back Kurt Zouma for the rest of the season, with the Frenchman joining Angelo Ogbonna on the treatment table.

Aaron Cresswell missed the midweek win in Lyon due to a European suspension, but he is able to return to the starting lineup on Sunday and is set to replace Ben Johnson at left-back, though the latter could switch to right-back and replace Vladimir Coufal, who could see his minutes managed having only just recovered from groin surgery.

Star man Jarrod Bowen is expected to keep his place in the first XI; the 25-year-old has been involved in more Premier League goals than any other Hammers player this season with nine goals and eight assists.

Lukasz Fabianski is likely to replace Alphonse Areola between the sticks, while Said Benrahma will be hoping to start ahead of Manuel Lanzini in an advanced midfield role.

As for Burnley, Ben Mee remains doubtful with a knee injury, so Nathan Collins and James Tarkowski are set to continue at centre-back.

Erik Pieters continues to make progress in his recovery from his own knee injury but will remain sidelined this weekend, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson is still out with a calf problem.
