On another afternoon of high drama at the London Stadium the Clarets conceded two late goals to suffer a third successive Premier League defeat. 

 Last season’s 3-0 win here for the Clarets was marred by a series of pitch invasions by unhappy Hammers fans.

 But this time they were celebrating at the end after goals from Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez ended a four-match winless run.

 The Clarets had twice hit back to level and when Chris Wood, whose two goals from the bench last season had helped sparked the unrest, headed his first league goal of the season with 13 minutes to go it looked as though Sean Dyche’s men might escape with a point.

 But Anderson’s second goal of the game and Hernandez’s injury-time effort put paid to those hopes as the Clarets’ defensive problems again proved costly.

 Dyche’s response to back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea was to make three changes to the Clarets’ line-up, with Matej Vydra, Aaron Lennon and Ashley Westwood all returning to starting duty.

 Jack Cork’s ankle injury ended his ever-present run in the Premier League since his Turf Moor return at the start of last season.
