England Premier League.

Kick-off at 20:00 UK.
Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich.
West Bromwich Albion have certainly got themselves out of a hole after a morale boosting 2-1 win against Leicester City away at the King Power Stadium last time out. They were without a win in the previous 5 with 3 draws and 2 losses. And the win have helped them to move away from the relegation zone, at least for the time being.
West Brom have 13 points at the moment are at at 11th position in the league table. However, this is only 3 point short of the 18th placed Hull. While Burnley are 9th with 14 points, a great start for a team who got just promoted.
Burnley are currently unbeaten in their last three matches which includes 2 wins and a draw. This includes two excellent results, a 2-1 win at home against Everton and 0-0 draw against Manchester United at the Old Trafford. They defeated Crystal Palace in their last fixture in a 5 goal thriller which needed a late goal to swing the result in favour of Burnley.

West Brom vs Burnley: Prediction
West Brom will be handed a boost in confidence by the win against Leicester. But they are facing a Burnley side who are winning plaudits with their disciplined football. This will be a cat and mouse affair and none of the managers want to see their losing after full 90 minutes.
Burnley’s away record in the league is not that great as they are win-less after 4 matches into the season. It has to be noted that they have conceded 3 gaols each in 3 matches before the 0-0 stalemate at Old Trafford. As seen in their head-to-head against West Brom, the fixture between these two always favours the home team. So we can confidently back West Brom to edge a narrow win here.
