📝 West Brom vs Burnley match preview
Burnley have been uncharacteristically poor defensively this season and have conceded eight goals from three games.
West Brom, on the other hand, haven't covered themselves in glory either and their only point from four games so far came from the draw against Chelsea where the Baggies relinquished a three-goal lead to concede three in the second half.
Slaven Bilic's side has conceded a minimum of two goals in all of their matches except for the one against Brighton and are defensively frail as well. As such, the focus of both sides could be on steadying their backline.
This is a good opportunity for either side to grind out a positive result because whoever comes out worse is going to have quite an uphill climb after Monday.
