West Brom vs Burnley Prediction & Betting tips
West Bromwich Albion and Burnley have not started the season too well. On Monday-evening, these two teams will cross swords at The Hawthorns and go in search of their first three-pointer of the season.
West Bromwich Albion:
Slaven Bilic and West Bromwich Albion must ensure that it is also active at the highest level in the coming season. For the time being, things are not going as they hoped for at West Bromwich Albion. After four games, the West Midlands club is at one point. That point was also taken in the home game with Chelsea in which West Bromwich gave Albion a 3-0 lead completely. The problem with West Bromwich is that things aren’t quite the way Bilic would like on the defensive. So West Bromwich Albion conceded three goals against Chelsea. Also in the lost duels with Leicester City (0-3), Everton (5-2) and Southampton (2-0), goalkeeper Sam Johnstone had to take the necessary hits.
Johnstone is one of the many players at West Bromwich Albion with little to no Premier League experience and that could break up The Baggies. What could break up West Bromwich Albion against Burnley is that it misses the necessary forwards. Striker Hal Robson-Kanu is injured at West Bromwich Albion, while fellow attacker Callum Robinson is in home quarantine due to corona. There is a good chance that Karlan Grant will make his debut at West Brom a few days after his transfer. In England, the domestic transfer market was open until Friday, which meant that West Bromwich Albion acquisition Grant was able to take over from Huddersfield Town for sixteen million euros on Thursday evening.
Burnley is still winless in the Premier League. Unlike many other clubs, The Clarets have only played three league games and they all lost to Sean Dyche and his men. Burnley started the competition with a 4-2 loss on a visit to Leicester City and Southampton (0-1) and Newcastle United (3-1) have also been too strong for The Clarets in recent weeks. For the next two weeks, Burnley will be playing in-house against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, making Dyche’s side actually a matter of getting a good result against West Bromwich Albion.
At The Hawthorns they will at least have to show something at Burnley. After all, West Bromwich Albion is a relegation candidate and also misses the necessary attackers. It is up to Burnley to make use of that and to grab the first points of the season. In any case, it is striking that Burnley is still winless, because Dyche has an almost identical team as last season when he finished in tenth place with The Clarets. As Dyche has become used to in recent months, he also has to miss the necessary players this weekend due to injuries.
