Albion unchanged from Spurs success

Baggies tackle Clarets at The Hawthorns (ko 4pm)

ALBION head coach Alan Irvine named an unchanged starting XI for today’s Barclays Premier League clash against Burnley from the one which defeated Tottenham last Sunday.

The Baggies take on the Clarets at The Hawthorns looking to make it three wins in the space of eight days having also got the better of Hull in the Capital One Cup in midweek.

Irvine made 11 changes against the Tigers, resting each of those who started the victory at White Hart Lane which came courtesy of James Morrison’s second-half header.

Claudio Yacob, Sebastian Blanco and Georgios Samaras are each promoted to the bench, replacing Brown Ideye, Victor Anichebe and Chris Baird, who miss out due to injury and illness.

Albion: Foster, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Dorrans, Morrison, Gardner, Brunt, Sessegnon, Berahino.

Subs: Myhill, Gamboa, McAuley, Yacob, Mulumbu, Blanco, Samaras.

Burnley: Heaton; Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee; Arfield, Wallace, Reid, Kightly; Boyd; Jutkiewicz.

Subs: Gilks, Chalobah, Sordell, Barnes, Ward, Keane, Long.

Referee: Jonathan Moss (West Riding)
