STAT PACK: Trip to the Turf under the spotlight

5 May 2017

The Baggies face Burnley on Saturday

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Baggies have come up against Burnley three times in the Premier League. Albion have won twice, with the other game ending in a draw. 

Albion have averaged 3.3 goals per game against Burnley in the Premier League. It’s their best record versus an opponent.

The Baggies recorded a resounding 4-0 victory over the Clarets back in November. Matt Phillips, James Morrison, Darren Fletcher and Salomon Rondon were all on target at The Hawthorns.

Albion’s last win at Turf Moor came back in February, 2002, when Jason Roberts’ double helped them to a 2-0 success. The Clarets are unbeaten in five games on home soil against the Baggies.

Both teams have scored in each of the last five games played at Turf Moor.


BURNLEY

The Clarets will go in search of their first Premier League win over Albion.

They are looking to follow up an away Premier League victory – last Saturday’s 2-0 triumph at Crystal Palace – with a win in their next match for the first time (D2 L2).

Burnley’s heaviest defeat of the season to date was their 4-0 loss at The Hawthorns back in November.

The Clarets have won 10 of their 17 games at home in the Premier League so far this term. They have collected 32 points on home soil, more than Manchester United, Manchester City and champions Leicester City.

Burnley have just two wins in 16 league games against the Baggies.


ALBION

A win for the Baggies would see them move to within two points of equalling their best ever Premier League points tally (49).

Tony Pulis needs only three points to match his best-ever tally in a Premier League season. He collected 47 with Stoke City in 2010. 

Albion will be looking to record a victory on the road for the first time since New Year's Eve, when they won 2-1 at Southampton.

The Baggies are aiming to avoid a fifth consecutive Premier League defeat.

Albion have scored 10 goals in three Premier League games against Burnley.
