Burnley v West Ham

Burnley to qualify.
This should be a terrific cup tie and with their home record Burnley look good value to sneak through.
Hammers are going ok in the epl, some decent defensive performances and ofcourse that excellent derby win at spurs when sam got his tactics spot on and hit them home side on the break. im not sure we should expect an awful lot more than a mid-table finish from them this season but just being clear of that relegation scrap should be more than enough for the fans and directors. this is a tough team to play against very strong in defence and on set plays.
burnley have been a surprise this season in the championship playing some very nice football and looking a good bet for at least a place in the play offs and another crack at the big time. their squad probably looks nowhere near as strong as some of the big names but their team spirit, togetherness and effort to work hard for each other has been second to none. they have one of the best home records in england and also a terrific recent history in terms of cup shocks. the fans love nothing more than a big name being turned over in the cup so a good atmosphere is certain.
i think this game will be about attitude. i expect sam to make a few changes as this isnt the most important game on the calander. burnley on the other hand will see it as a massive fixture and another chance to improve their standing in the english game so should be really fired up. i think burnleys speed in attack could be the difference, they are scoring a right few goals at the moment while west ham could rest their best defenders.
