West Ham United closer to champions league qualification with a win over Burnley 2-1

West Ham United kept themselves in contention for Champions League qualification on Monday evening.

David Moyes’ side travelled to Burnley knowing that only a victory would suffice and they managed to earn just that at Turf Moor.

West Ham won the game 2-1 thanks to a brace from the returning Michail Antonio.

Chris Wood had opened the scoring on the night from the penalty spot, but the visitors responded in style.

One of the key men behind West Ham’s first half comeback on a rainy night in Lancashire was summer signing Said Benrahma.

The Algerian winger was pretty much unplayable and his assist for Antonio’s second goal in the 29th-minute was absolutely brilliant.

Benrahma’s whipped cross into the box was right on the money and his only had to get the smallest of touches on the ball to direct it towards goal and past Nick Pope.

Beautiful stuff from Benrahma and what made his stunning performance in the first half hour or so at Turf Moor even better is the fact that he was fasting for Ramadan.
