Pablo Zabaleta hands advice to wantaway West Ham star Sakho

When West Ham United seek a second consecutive home win against Burnley on Saturday, they will not only face a resolute Clarets defence, but also a stand-in goalkeeper who has taken to Premier League football with aplomb.

Slaven Bilic can't fathom why English fans do not value Joe Hart and dared his keeper's critics to name a mistake he has made for the national team.

He told West Ham TV: "The whole situation is better than it was, a few weeks ago".

The 29-year-old has only found the back of the net in two of his first nine West Ham appearances, and he has certainly not established himself as Bilic's leading striker. "He did that against Swansea, so I'm very pleased for him".

Burnley have made a surprisingly strong start to the season and are now sixth with three wins and three draws from seven matches.

They followed that up with away draws at Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, before another win on the road ― this time at Everton ― in their last league outing.

The evidence of eight points from four away matches this term would suggest that Dyche has solved that problem, and Burnley's start to this season has been so impressive that they return from the global break way up in sixth place in table.

"They are still very solid and when needed very direct, but you can see them play and being braver with the ball and on the ball". Then he kept clean sheets in the last three out of four.

"I think you don't appreciate him", the Hammers manager said. "It's unrealistic for me to say that we knew it was going to happen because we didn't".
