Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood both celebrated signing new contracts with goals that propelled the Clarets to another big win over the Hammers.

 Last season’s Turf Moor victory over the Londoners at the turn of the year had been the launchpad for the Clarets’ sprint to safety.

 And while the need wasn’t quite so great this time around, the combination of Barnes and Wood and an own-goal from goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez brought a welcome end to a three-match losing run.

 The Clarets’ strike partnership – re-united following Wood’s return from a two-match absence – took their combined tally for the season to 10 league goals to cap a week in which they had both extended their stay at Turf Moor.
 
 And in truth they could have added plenty more, notably Wood who had underlined his liking for this fixture with his sixth goal in five games against the Hammers with the second goal just before half time that all but sealed the deal as he again ran the Londoners ragged.

 Jimenez was at fault for all three of the Clarets’ goals, although it was only his acrobatics late in the piece that prevented a landslide as Sean Dyche’s side produced exactly the response they needed to record an emphatic fourth home win of the season and re-claim a place back in the top half of the table.

 In a bid to stop the losing run, Dyche made three changes with full-backs Charlie Taylor and Phil Bardsley returning along with Wood to make their first Premier League starts of the season.

 And the Clarets wasted no time in looking to make amends for their first-half collapse at Sheffield United a week ago with an up-tempo opening that had the Hammers immediately on the ropes.

Super 3 points that, we dominated the game, McNeil was superb and deserved MOM, Bardsley and Taylor much better in defence, Ben Mee back to his best. Wood and Barnes awesome created triouble all over. VAR can get stuffed it is definitely ruining the game.

Well done chaps great recovery from last week. (Sm152)

First goal controversial, shouldn’t have been a corner leading up to it.
Goal disallowed by VAR, a close offside but correct call.
Second goal, poor throw out and poor 1st touch by West Ham , but McNeil was switched on to take advantage.
Third goal, poor goalkeeping.
From the highlights Burnley looked deserved winners with McNeil motm.

When you have 2 big lads in the middle and it has been SD's strategy for some time that requires a player to put the quality crosses in ............it is little surprise McNeil is a constant. What a find he is. Now we just need to find a combo that makes the best of our Jay's tremendous talent without losing what we already have. SD has surpassed what I thought he was capable of, now there is no limits imho.
Now for the first time in decades I am not surprised at any positive result against anybody. Unbelievable in the current crazy financial times.
