Michail Antonio’s ninth-minute goal made it back-to-back victories for West Ham United as they beat Burnley to move up to ninth.
The West Ham forward, making his first league start since 30 November, tapped in at the far post from Pablo Fornals’ left-wing cross to make it 10 goals across his last 12 starts in the competition.
West Ham nearly doubled their lead when Angelo Ogbonna headed against a post, before Chris Wood flashed a shot wide for Burnley as it remained 1-0 at half-time.
Antonio was denied a second when his header was cleared off the line by Ben Mee, who missed a chance to equalise, along with substitute Jay Rodriguez.
West Ham have 29 points, while Burnley drop to 17th on 16 points, four points above the relegation zone.
West Ham: 19 Jan v West Brom (H)
Burnley: 21 Jan v Liverpool (A)
