That's all for today, goodbye! 
So, West Ham stay just four points above the relegation zone after that loss and it's an important match for them at the weekend as they travel to bottom of the table Norwich City. As for Burnley, they move up to 9th in the table, leapfrogging Tottenham, and keep their chances of qualifying for Europe alive. It's a tough test for them next time out as they travel to Anfield to face the champions, Liverpool.
Rodriguez's first-half goal seals a 1-0 win for Burnley over West Ham. Taylor swung a great cross into the box and Rodriguez got ahead of Cresswell and his header bounced off the underside of the bar and over the line. Wood also had the ball in the back of the net in the second half, but it was disallowed for offside. West Ham had a lot of chances on goal, including Antonio hitting the post, but Pope was equal to all of them, pulling off a number of brilliant saves.
90' + 4' West Ham have attempted 20 shots in this match - the most in a Premier League match since February 2019 v Fulham (21 shots).
90' + 2' Bowen swings a great cross in from a corner and it bounces through the box without anyone making contact. It comes through to Rice on the left and he floats the ball back into the middle. Ogbonna is waiting at the far post, but it's headed out by Long.
90' Brownhill is back on his feet now and will be able to finish the game.
88' Bowen fires a powerful shot towards goal and it hits Brownhill in the face from close range. The medical team have come on to give the midfielder some treatment.
A. Ajeti
Pablo Fornals
86' Second change for West Ham as they continue to go for a late equaliser. Ajeti comes on in place of Fornals.
84' It's slow build-up from West Ham as they keep hold of the ball in their own half as they wait for some space to open up in midfield. When it doesn't, Diop tries to pick out Antonio, but he can't control it on the edge of the box.
82' West Ham feel they should've had a free-kick on the right wing for a handball, but it isn't given by the referee and the home team are making their frustration clear with the decision.
80' GOOD SAVE! Taylor plays a great pass forward and Wood times his run perfectly to reach it. He wrongfoots Diop with a step over and keeps the shot low as he fires it towards the far bottom corner, but Fabianski gets down well to turn it away.
78' Wood does really well to hold up the ball under pressure from Ogbonna as he waits for some support. He squares it to Rodriguez, but he can't do anything with it as Diop comes and nicks it off him.
76' OFFSIDE! Bardsley isn't picked up on the right of the box and he fizzes a low cross into the middle. Wood makes the run through the middle and taps it in from close range but the flag has gone up. VAR has checked and the onfield decision stands. 
75' Burnley are steadily moving up the field now as they patiently try to break down West Ham's defence. The home side have all of their players back trying to close down the space ahead of them.
73' It's a very tight game in midfield at the moment as both sides are failing to keep hold of possession. A lot of tackles are going in and neither team have been able to push into the final third in the last few minutes.
71' It looked like Tarkowski was caught in the face by Antonio's elbow as they challenged for the ball and he's getting some treatment for it now. He's quickly back to his feet though and he'll be able to carry on.
70' West Ham are pushing forward again in search of the equaliser. Rice's pass loops up and Tarkowski and Antonio both go for the same ball, with the defender falling to the ground holding his face.
68' Westwood is standing over the free-kick near the halfway line for Burnley and he floats a lovely pass into the box. Wood and Tarkowski are waiting at the far post, but Ogbonna gets ahead of them to head it out.
66' Taylor is given a lot of space on the left wing and he curls another good cross into the box. It takes a deflection off Ogbonna at the near post but still goes through to Rodriguez, but his shot is straight at Fabianski.
R. Fredericks
Yellow Card
64' Fredericks cuts off Pieters' run during Burnley's counter-attack and is booked for the challenge.
62' GREAT SAVE! Antonio's shot is blocked on the right of the box but Haller follows it up and almost scores with his first touch as he drills his shot towards goal. Pope comes off his line and gets his right foot to it to send it wide of the post.
S. Haller
A. Yarmolenko
62' First change for West Ham now and Haller makes his return after a hip injury as he replaces Yarmolenko.
60' The corner is swung into the box for West Ham and it's Soucek that rises above everyone else to get his head to the ball. It's a looping header that doesn't have enough dip on it and it lands on the roof of the net.
C. Wood
M. Vydra
58' Dyche makes the first change now and he brings on Wood in place of Vydra.
J. Tarkowski
Yellow Card
58' Tarkowski picks up the first yellow card of the game after catching Bowen high on his leg with studs after missing the ball.
56' Fornals plays a brilliant throughball into the box to pick out Bowen but he has his back to goal and is forced to play it out wide to Cresswell. It's a poor cross from him though and Long is able to clear his lines.
54' Burnley have won nine of their last 11 league games when scoring the opening goal (D2) since a 2-1 loss to Leicester City in October 2019.
52' West Ham are struggling to get a touch on the ball at the moment, especially when they move out of their own half. Yarmolenko is in a good position on the right, but a loose touch from him gifts the ball to Pieters.
50' West Ham don't clear their lines from a corner and the ball bounces up for Rodriguez. He touches it back to Vydra who completely misses it on the volley, but the flag goes up for offside.
48' Burnley have made a bright start to the second half and are already causing West Ham problems. McNeil swings a great cross into the near post from the left and Vydra had made the run, but Diop puts it out for a corner.
46' West Ham get us back underway for the second half!
Despite being on the back foot for a lot of the first half, Dyche will be pleased with his side's performance so far and will be expecting them to continue the disciplined performance. As for West Ham, Moyes will think his side should be leading after all their chances and will want them to be more clinical after the break.
Burnley take a 1-0 lead into half-time against West Ham. Against the run of play, Taylor swung a cross into the box from the left and Rodriguez's header bounced off the underside of the crossbar and over the line. The home side created some good chances in the first half and forced Pope into making three important saves for his side against Soucek, Yarmolenko and Antonio, who also hit the post.
45' + 1' West Ham are searching for an equaliser late in the first half and Rice swings a free-kick into the box from the right wing. Ogbonna rises highest to meet it in the middle, but it's a good block from Long ahead of him.
44' Rodriguez has been involved in a goal in three consecutive league games in a row for the first time since March 2014 for Southampton.
42' GOOD SAVE! West Ham have another good chance to equalise as Antonio squares it to Yarmolenko on the right of the box. He takes a touch to get past Taylor and drills his shot towards the near post, but Pope gets a strong hand to it.
40' OFF THE POST! Antonio makes a driving run through the middle and gets away from the Burnley defenders to get one-on-one with Pope. He tries to curl the ball around Pope but sends his shot bouncing off the side of the post.
J. Rodriguez
38' BURNLEY LEAD! Rodriguez runs across Cresswell to get on the end of Taylor's cross and he turns the ball on target. It beats Fabianski and bounces off the underside of the crossbar before crossing the line. 1-0 Burnley!
C. Taylor
38' Taylor is given a lot of space down the left and swings a good cross into the box with a lot of pace on it for Rodriguez to run onto.
37' Pieters gets his head up on the halfway line and plays a good throughball forward to Rodriguez on the right. He doesn't time his run though and the flag goes up for offside.
35' It's brilliant play from Antonio as he skips past two Burnley defenders down the left side before he fizzes a cross into Yarmolenko. He tries to turn so he can get a shot away, but Tarkowski makes an important block to stop him.
33' Long plays a good pass over the top into the box and Fredericks heads it down. He almost plays his side into trouble as Vydra is waiting just behind him, but Diop is close by and clears the danger for West Ham.
31' Burnley are struggling to keep hold of the ball at the moment as West Ham continue to put pressure on them in search of the opening goal. Every time they move out of their half though, they end up giving away possession.
29' GREAT SAVES! Fredericks swings a good cross into the box and Soucek hits the shot first time from close range in the middle. Pope makes a good reflex save to deny him. Then, following a corner, Antonio drills a low shot on goal, but Pope is equal to it again and he kicks the effort away.
27' West Ham are keeping possession well but are still struggling to get in behind Burnley. The away side have a lot of bodies back defending and making it difficult for West Ham.
25' Bowen drifts out to the left again and this time plays a good low cross into Antonio. The forward takes a touch before drilling his shot towards goal, but Bardsley makes an important block. 
24' Burnley restart the game after the cooling break with a throw-in, but West Ham quickly win it back once again.
22' Fredericks and Yarmolenko are linking up well down the right-hand side as they continue to try and get past Burnley's well-organised defence. A heavy touch from the right-back gives the Taylor a chance to win it back.
20' Burnley have all of their players back in their own half at the moment as West Ham push forward again. It's patient play from the home side as they're struggling to break down their opponents in the final third.
18' Bowen is in space on the left and he has Antonio up with him in the box. He takes too long to pick out a pass though which gives the defenders time to get back and Long clears the cross at the near post.
16' Burnley have won three of their last four Premier League games against West Ham (L1), keeping a clean sheet in each victory.
14' It's a great cross into the box from Cresswell on the left and Soucek makes a clever run to the near post. He gets ahead of Tarkowski and flicks his header on, but it's too high and sails over the bar.
12' Burnley have a free-kick on the left and McNeil swings the cross into the box. Vydra meets it at the near post and flicks his header onto the target, but it's a comfortable save for Fabianski.
10' West Ham win a free-kick in midfield and Cresswell swings a cross into the box. It looks like Pope has it covered but it went through his hands after a challenge from Ogbonna. The ball falls to Soucek, but his shot is kicked away by the goalkeeper.
8' Taylor does well to keep the ball in play at the byline and cuts it back to Vydra. He has his back to goal and two defenders with him but he manages to touch it onto Pieters who fires his first-time shot over the bar.
6' West Ham are keeping possession well at the moment and are pushing forward into the final third again. Bowen makes a great run through the middle but gets the ball stuck under his feet and can't get a shot away.
4' Brownhill gives the ball away to Antonio and West Ham have a chance to test Burnley. The forward keeps the ball under pressure and picks out Soucek on the edge of the box. He takes the shot first time but fires it high over the crossbar. 
2' Westwood wins it back in midfield and picks out Rodriguez's run through the middle. He can't do anything with it so touches it onto McNeil to his left. He takes a touch before swinging a great cross into the box but can't pick out a team-mate.
1' Westwood gets the game underway for Burnley!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
West Ham are on a run of 13 Premier League matches without a clean sheet - only Bournemouth (16) are on a longer current run without a shutout. They last had a worse run back in December 2009 (15 games).
Sean Dyche has a lot of key players missing through injury and sticks with the same starting line-up that faced Sheffield United on Sunday. 
David Moyes makes just one change to the team that drew with Newcastle United at the weekend as he brings in Yarmolenko to replace Lanzini who starts on the bench. He also has Haller back in the squad after a hip injury.
BURNLEY SUBS: Chris Wood, Jimmy Dunne, Mace Goodridge, Robbie Brady, Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, Josh Benson, Max Thompson, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Johann Gudmundsson.
BURNLEY STARTING XI (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor; Dwight McNeil, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Erik Pieters; Jay Rodriguez, Matej Vydra.
WEST HAM SUBS: Arthur Massuaku, Mark Noble, Ben Johnson, Sebastian Haller, Fabian Balbuena, Darren Randolph, Manuel Lanzini, Albian Ajeti, Jack Wilshere.
WEST HAM STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Andriy Yarmolenko; Michail Antonio.
West Ham start the day just four points clear of the relegation zone but have a chance to put some space between themselves and Aston Villa with a win today. They've won just one of their four games since the restart (D1 L2), but that was their last home game against Chelsea in a 3-2 victory. A win for Burnley though could move them closer to a place in Europe next season and extend their current three-match unbeaten run (W2 D1).
