West Brom stands at 12th position at the table in English Premier league, they collected 13 points out of 11 rounds and for sure are satisfied with results, they ended last campaign at 14th spot and it's very important for them to stay above red zone, actually that is their man goal and so far did a decent job in one of the strongest European leagues, most recently in previous round they celebrated over title defenders Leicester away from home and ended series of five matches without victory, in 12th round of Premier league they are welcoming newcomers Burnley and should be able to overcome them and achieve second consecutive victory for the first time in this season. Hosts are side which don't have some big ambitions, they will actually have a hard task to keep their current position in such a strong league, judging by performances that they showed so far i believe that will manage to stay at the middle of the table, this will for sure be a long season with plenty of difficult games and victories in games against not so strong opponents are must. It won't be easy to defeat guests, they showed good performances in last few rounds and despite hosts are favorites i'm not so sure that will manage to overcome them. Hosts reached Premier league six seasons ago and i'm pretty sure that will manage to stay here for the next one but currently i doubt in their victory. Defender Jonas Olsson (6/0), offensive midfielder Nacer Chadli (9/4), forwards Saido Berahino (5/0), James McClean (19/1) and Salomon Rondon (15/6) are all having issues with minor injuries and their appearances are in doubt for this game.
After only one season in Championship Burnley won their ticket for return into Premier league and so far did a pretty good job to reach middle of the table and get as far as possible away from relegation zone. So far achieved four victories, in second round managed to surprise Liverpool and boost their morale, second victory came in meeting with Watford while in last three rounds guests did a great job and collected seven points, first achieved great victory over Everton, after that earned huge one point against Red Devils while in last round two weeks ago celebrated over Crystal Palace, all victories were at home ground and now must show some really great performances to earn all three points away from home, so far only in meeting against United got a draw while on all other travelings were defeated. Guests didn't impressed with performances so far in offense, however this is one of the strongest European leagues and as newcomers they can be satisfied with results, it won't be easy to overcome hosts here but even draw would be positive here. Still they have problems with keeping a clean sheet especially on travelings and only in that duel with Red Devils at Old Trafford managed to save their net, here won't rush anything but hosts are decent team which got confidence after that last victory and i doubt that The Clarets will avoid defeat here. Only left back Steven Ward (16/1) is in doubt for this game due to injury issues.
West Brom have advantage of home field and must exploit that, they ended series of bad results with great victory over Leicester and now will be seeking for another one against Burnley which seems pretty good at the moment, they are probably now in best shape since this season started but i believe that hosts will end their series of positive results and celebrate at their field for second home victory in this campaign.
