Tottenham manager Pochettino to rest players for Cup clash

Tottenham manager Pochettino to rest players for Cup clash

All Whites striker Chris Wood has broken a long goal scoring drought but his header wasn't enough to earn Burnley a win at Winston Reid's West Ham. He was the first person not happy with his performances.

The 22-year-old claims that he and his teammates have committed their futures to the club because they believe in the "journey" they are on together.

"A insane game, in some ways, and we certainly don't want to be conceding as many goals as we have the last few games, obviously, but I was pleased with the mentality to keep going back at them to try and get something from the game".

The Chilean coach had told Anderson there was no chance he would be dropped, despite a slow start to life in the Premier League.

A couple of minutes later, West Ham missed a gilt-edged chance to go in front for a third time when Anderson's curling strike kissed the far post. I love being here, I love being a part of what this club is doing and where we're heading.

Anderson had 103 touches in total - 25 more than any other player on the pitch - which highlights his involvement in what was a crucial win for the club.

NA, other institutions should stand with Supreme Court: Bilawal
She denied charges but she was arrested and tried and a Sheikhupura judge sentenced her to death in November 2010. The judgment added, " Asia Bibi be released immediately if not involved in any other case".

West Ham have been Wood's lucky team since he joined Burnley on a $26 million transfer from Leeds United previous year.

Born in Congo but raised in London, the latest talent off West Ham's production line looks the part and is not short of confidence.

"I think that in forty-eight hours to play two games so competitively against Manchester City and West Ham on Monday and then today, I have to be proud". His idol is Ronaldinho and there is little fear in a player who never stopped running at defenders.

After withstanding pressure for the majority of the first half, Burnley equalised just before the break when Ashley Westwood played a through ball into the path of Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who slotted it past goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Manager Sean Dyche is convinced their dip compared to last season's seventh-place finish comes down to the small margins.

Declan Rice seems to be growing in influence with each passing week and was impressive at the base of West Ham's midfield once again. As stand-in captain Pablo Zabaleta put it: 'This is the only way for the manager to play.' Anderson and Diangana are just two beneficiaries.
