Entertaining Burnley at the London Olympic Stadium, The only goal scored by Michail Antonio locked West Ham's victory, according to the official Premier League website.

Six minutes into the second half, Antonio almost scored his second but his header was cleared by Mee before crossing the line.
Otherwise, Burnley had a chance to hit back in the 80th minute when Dwight McNeil's cross was too sharp and beat goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, but the ball hit the goalkeeper.
Five minutes later, Burnley was on the verge of getting a durian when Ogbonna almost scored a suicide goal while sweeping, unfortunately the ball is still thin on the outside of the goal.
Two minutes before dispersal, Andriy Yarmolenko made the wrong decision when selfishly ignoring Antonio's move on his left and firing a shot that only resulted in a corner.

Burnley's decline was inseparable from victory 1-0 won by Brighton over Leeds United in another match that took place simultaneously at Elland Road.
Neal Maupay scored Brighton's winner in the 17th minute following Leandro Trossard's right decision which had distracted goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.
The result allowed Brighton to finish the winning trend they had experienced in their previous eight matches and now the Graham Potter team has now climbed to 17th place with a win. 17 points, while Leeds (23) while remaining at number 12.
