West Ham Manager Opens Up On Andre Ayew's Departure

Winston Reid has been ruled out for the rest of the seasonWhat is the team news?

West Ham are 14th in the league with 30 points, three points above the relegation zone.

Former Chelsea winger Joe Cole says that he has ambitions to become a manager, with his ultimate aim being to become the boss at Chelsea or West Ham.

Leyton Orient, meanwhile, will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome Ebbsfleet United in the National League this weekend. The victory also meant they have reached 40 points in the league, five behind sixth-placed Arsenal with the prospect of Europa League qualification not out of their reach.

David Moyes has welcomed the decision by West Ham fans not to stage a protest march ahead of Saturday's crucial clash with Burnley.

"That shows how far we have come if people think we are favourites against a big club like West Ham", said Gudmundsson. This is not a good atmosphere for a club to have as they enter a game. A few injuries - did my hamstring, did my knee, did everything I possibly could do.

"We are coming together to remember Bobby. I hope, and I want the players to have the chance now to play with more freedom".

While Gudmundsson is fully focused on helping Burnley, he has the huge carrot of a first World Cup finals this summer after Iceland built on their stunning European Championship performance by qualifying for Russian Federation.

"We came off an awkward run, although I said there were some good performances", said Dyche. "There are definitely similarities (between Iceland and Burnley) - how we play, the mentality of the squad, and we are both doing very well".
