Late winner from Tomas Soucek secures comeback win for West Ham against Burnley

West Ham’s Tomas Soucek scored a stoppage-time volley to secure a 2-1 victory over Burnley, who suffered their seventh consecutive home defeat. The Clarets had taken the lead with a Jay Rodriguez penalty, but an 87th-minute own goal from Dara O’Shea and Soucek’s late winner dashed their hopes of securing their first home league win since May. Despite chances for Burnley to extend their lead, West Ham’s persistence paid off as they sealed the win in dramatic fashion. The defeat saw Burnley match a 53-year-old record for starting a league campaign with seven home defeats.
