Burnley vs West Ham – LIVE!

Michail Antonio scored twice on his return from injury to fire the Hammers into a 2-1 win on Monday which lifted them up to fifth place in the Premier League and kept alive their hopes of Champions League football next season.

The home side took the lead in the 19th minute when Chris Wood was brought down in the box by Tomas Soucek, and the New Zealand international picked himself up to drill the resulting penalty low to keeper Lukasz Fabianski's right.

The lead was short-lived as Antonio, who was returning from a hamstring injury suffered in early April, split a pair of defenders to score with a bullet header in the 21st minute, and he added the winner eight minutes later with a deft finish.

The victory lifts the Hammers to fifth on 58 points after 34 games, three behind London rivals Chelsea in the race for the final Champions League spot. Burnley, whose winless streak at Turf Moor extended to eight games, are 16th on 36 points.
