Burnley vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.
The Clarets had begun their campaign on a worrying note, and dropped an alarming number of points. And as a result, they are now placed in the bottom tier of the table.
Still, they are trying to recover now. They have made a noticeable improvement in their form lately, and are starting to climb upwards.
They have been delivering good performances in recent weeks, and their only defeats in the period have come against some of the best teams in England.
Meanwhile, the Baggies continue to be one of the worst teams in the PL. They are placed 19th in the table, and it’s almost a given now that they will get relegated at the end of the campaign.
They are also a recently promoted team from the Championship, and they have also conceded the most number of goals so far in the tournament. In fact, they have let in 13 more goals than any other squad in the English top flight.
By the looks of things, expect Burnley to have the edge this Saturday.
