Albion v Burnley match preview

30 March 2018

ALBION host Burnley on Saturday in a Premier League clash at The Hawthorns (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Burnley currently sit seventh in the table on 43 points from their 30 games so far this season.

Sean Dyche’s side have won their last two matches, beating Everton 2-1 in their most recent outing and overcoming West Ham 3-0 at the London Stadium earlier in the month.

Last time out

The most recent game between the two teams was back at the start of the campaign when Hal Robson-Kanu’s goal earned the Baggies a 1-0 win.

Albion also won the last fixture at The Hawthorns - with goals from Matt Phillips, James Morrison, Darren Fletcher and Salomon Rondon securing a 4-0 victory in November 2016.
