West Brom and Burnley face off in an early-season English Premier League on Monday at the Hawthorns.
West Brom hasn’t had a great start to their Premier League season and they currently have only one point. Even though they only have one point the point they did get was impressive against Chelsea. West Brom was able to score three goals but they collapsed late in the game and lost a chance to gain three points, something that could hurt them when relegation time comes around. In the last game against Southampton, their defense was a big issue scoring only two points and that led to the loss. West Brom only had 39 percent of the possession and trying to find success only on the counter isn’t the way for this team to win.
On the other side of this matchup is Burnley who still hasn’t managed to pick up a point this season, and if they don’t want to be relegated, this is a game they really need to try and pick up three points in. Burnley’s issue all season has been with their defense and in three of the four games they have given up at least three points. In the last game against Newcastle, Burnley did score a goal, but they gave up three goals and that led to the loss. Burnley did have 53 percent of the possession in that game but they only managed three shots on target and that led to the loss. In this game, Burnley needs to play a defense-first game and not let this game get into a high scoring affair. A shootout is probably a game they won’t be able to win.
Burnley’s defense is an issue and that is going to let them down again. West Brom might not be able to come away with a victory,but this game is going to be pushed over the total.
