Reason for WBA vs Burnley Predictions
Their 3-0 opening defeat to Leicester City was chastening, but they were level with the Foxes until the second half. If they had more top-flight experience in their ranks, they might have been able to hold onto their lead in what eventually ended up being a 3-3 draw with Chelsea. All in all, it is an encouraging race for the home team before the test against the team from Burnley, better than their results would suggest. Jake Livermore is an experienced player who means a lot to the team, he moves great, and he can play in several positions. Matheus Pereira is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Charlie Austin was the best player of the team last season. He scored ten times, he is doing great in the penalty area, and his goals are expected in the Premier League as well. WBA has a lot of young players on the bench who make a significant contribution. Kenneth Zohore (Calf Injury), Conor Townsend (ankle problems), and Hal Robson-Kanu (Broken Arm) will not play in this match.
Burnley made the top half of the table last term but has kicked off with a trio of league defeats this season. The Clarets were beaten 4-2 at Leicester, 1-0 on the home pitch by Southampton, and 3-1 when visiting Newcastle. The big problem for Burnley is the poor game in the second half. Five of the eight goals conceded came after the break. Although they have lost each of their two away matches so far. Burnley have won just one of their last six games against West Brom. Josh Brownhill plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The players from the bench are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Sean Dyche doesn’t have any fitness worries at all ahead of this clash, and all players are ready for this duel.
It will be a fascinating clash, and the home team has a better chance of winning. Slaven Bilic’s team should show strength and book a victory.
We can expect a great fight between these two teams, and both should be able to score. One thing is for sure – football fans should enjoy this game.
