Half-time at the London Stadium…

West Ham United 1-0 Burnley

West Ham ahead in a half of very few genuine chances.

Michail Antonio opened the scoring in the tenth minute, beating the off-side and arriving unmarked to convert Pablo Fornals’ centre.

Burnley thought they’d levelled when Aaron Cresswell turned Chris Wood’s cross into his own net – an assistants flag sparing the the Hammers mans blushed. Meanwhile, Angelo Ogbonna caused confussion as the ball cannoned back of an upright following Jarrod Bowen’s corner.

Not too much to warm the cockles on an icy afternoon in East London, but the home side have an advantage.
