The Hammers travel to winless Burnley today in search of back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since March.
Having enjoyed a successful start to the season under a new style of play and with a number of high quality new players, West Ham should be confident of climbing higher than their current position of seventh with a victory today.
With players returning from injury, including Mark Noble and Guy Demel, much has been made of whether Allardyce will change a winning side to accommodate them, but strength in depth suggest no changes are necessary from the off.
That said, Mark Noble is expected to walk straight back in to the side and take the captain’s armband off stand-in skipper Alex Song.
So here’s the confirmed starting line-ups for both sides at Turf Moor this afternoon…
