Sean Dyche's men were odds-on for relegation at the start of the campaign but survived with a little bit to spare after an impressive campaign based around their strong home form.

However, the Irons can still send their fans home happy if they manage to beat the Clarets at Turf Moor. "It has been a bad season for us and we have struggled for consistency but, at the end of the day, we want to finish as high as possible, in eleventh place".

West Ham have been linked with some pretty big names already this month, from Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge to Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has found difficulties up front this season with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho both succumbing to injuries.

Winston Reid will be missing for West Ham. He has a hip problem and has not played the last few games.

Behind Mancini in the betting are the likes of Lazio's Simeone Inzaghi (6/1), Fulham's Slavisa Jokanovic (8/1), Huddersfield's David Wagner (8/1), while Marseille manager Rudi Garcia also features at 10/1.

"Take our last game against Liverpool".

An indifferent performance this season at one stage saw Bilic's side flirt with the Premier League relegation zone.

The 18-year-old was given a new three-and-a-half year deal at West Ham earlier this season.

West Ham, who are 12th, have failed to win on the road in their last six league games.

As for West Ham, the London club will be playing for pride, as it does not look likely that they will break into the top 10 of the Premier League. They have also dropped the most in 2016-17 alone (22).

Bilic admitted in his Standard Sport column West Ham had faced a "perfect storm" of moving to a new stadium, losing their star player Dimitri Payet and failing to integrate a host of new signings.

Burnley have got to be careful next year.
