Burnley vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview

Burnley vs West Brom
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.

Burnley and WBA go head to head at Turf Moor in what will be a relegation six-pointer. 

The Clarets are six points clear of bottom three ahead of Matchday 25, meaning that a win over WBA will see them move one step closer securing the Premier League survival. 

Mee remains in the recovery room, while Taylor and Wood should be fit to face the Baggies.

Sam Allardyce’s men, on the other hand, did well to hold star-studded Man Utd to a draw in their last league match. 

WBA are eager to keep their survival hopes alive, but beating Burnley at Turf Moor is easier said than done. The Clarets are more of a team than the Baggies, and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. Diangana is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.

Team News:

Burnley boss Dyche revealed during Thursday's press conference that Ben Mee and Matej Vydra would both be available for selection this weekend.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady both picked up injuries during the draw with Fulham on Wednesday night, though, and the pair are set to miss out against the Baggies.

Dale Stephens and Erik Pieters are also still unavailable, while Chris Wood might not be ready for the contest, meaning that Jay Rodriguez and Ashley Barnes should operate as the front two once again.

As for West Brom, Grady Diangana is still absent, while Lee Peltier is a doubt with the issue that he picked up against Man United, meaning that Darnell Furlong could start at right-back.

Allardyce could otherwise name the same XI that started against the Red Devils, with Diagne again operating at the tip of the attack with support from Robert Snodgrass and Matheus Pereira in the wide areas.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Okay Yokuslu and Conor Gallagher should feature as the midfield three, meanwhile, meaning that Jake Livermore might have to accept a spot on the bench once again.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Rodriguez, Barnes

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend; Snodgrass, Maitland-Niles, Yokuslu, Gallagher, Pereira; Diagne
