Burnley will be aiming to end their woeful start to life back in the Premier League against West Ham, exclusively live on talkSPORT 2.
The Clarets have lost 10 of their opening 12 games this season and they sit at the bottom of the table, below Everton who have been deducted 10 points.
Vinceny Kompany’s side have also only scored nine goals while conceding 30, with the step up from the Championship proving to be too much.
They now take on David Moyes’ Hammers who bounced back from three straight losses to beat Nottingham Forest before the international break.
Burnley vs West Ham: Terrible at Turf Moor
Burnley have lost all six games at Turf Moor in the Premier League this season.
If they are to lose again this weekend, they would become only the second team in English league history to lose their first seven home games of a campaign.

The Clarets would be the first team to do so since Newport County over 50 years ago in the old fourth division.
It is a record that Kompany will not want during his first stint as a top-flight boss.
The Belgian has already joined Mick McCarthy as the only two managers to lose their first six Premier League home games in charge.
And he’ll be desperate to put an end to the misery in front of the Burnley fans against West Ham.
- Burnley’s only Premier League win so far this season was at fellow promoted side Luton Town in October. They’ve lost each of their last five since then but haven’t lost six consecutive top-flight matches since December 1895.
- West Ham have won their last seven Premier League games against promoted sides – their longest such run in the competition – while they’ve also won their last 10 against sides starting the day bottom of the table.
