Burnley vs West Ham 21 May 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

West Ham play their final game of the season away to Burnley on Sunday. The latter will be available on a free transfer after announcing he would end his nine-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.

Right-back and goalkeeper have been two of West Ham's problem areas this season, with Bilic expected to strengthen both this summer.

Sean Dyche's men have emerged victorious in ten of their 18 home matches to date, although their form has dipped in recent weeks, as they have won just one of their last five home games.

We're going to see. We were without eight players but still had a decent team so that shows that squad-wise, with the quantity of the players, we are okay. "We need the three points to get this position".

"He is one that may play - he's in the squad".

West Ham great Sir Trevor Brooking backed the possible signing of Zabaleta this week, telling BBC 5 Live the Argentinian's leadership qualities would benefit the club.

Bilic has confirmed that Arbeloa is likely to be released ahead of next season.

"We have leaders on our team", Bilic said.

"He's so valuable for us and he makes such a big impact on our game that he is very important for us and when he's not available of course I feel it and the team feels it. We are very happy with him". Every time that was hard for us and we needed to show that character before a game, we did it.

We are getting a good enough price on West Ham to win this game and as a result that is my bet.

Adrián's contract was due to expire on 30 June but West Ham exercised their option to automatically renew his contract, which means the 30-year-old keeper with remain at the club until 2019.

The Spaniard, who is back in the Hammers' first team after winning back his place from Darren Randolph, was out of contract this summer.
