The Clartes eased their relegation fears with a 4-0 thumping of Wolves last time out. Chris Wood scored a first-half hat-trick for Burnley at Molineux Stadium to end a three-game losing streak and help the Lancashire side move nine points clear of the drop zone.

"We knew our position was in our hands and that was the main thing," Wood told the BBC. "We wanted to keep it that way and this has made it a little bit easier now but there are still five tough games to go and we will see where we lie."

West Ham's Uefa Champions League ambitions took another hit with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea, a second defeat in succession, leaving them three points off fourth with five matches remaining. 

"We didn't play quite as well [as we can]. Today we were short - we felt short of players in areas where we needed some freshness and we didn't have it," said Hammers boss David Moyes in the aftermath of their loss to the Blues. 
 
"But I have to say the players did a great job. We didn't play so well in the first half, but we tweaked things a little bit in the second half and that made us better.

"For long periods we looked like having a chance of getting ourselves back into the game."
