Tip West Brom - Burnley
Two teams yet to win this season face off on Monday night when West Brom welcome Burnley to the Hawthorns for a Premier League showdown. West Brom can brag that they at least have a point, albeit having played a game more. That solitary point leaves them 17th, one place above Burnley in 18th. The Clarets have lost all three of their games thus far, a disappointing start for Sean Dyche's men. West Brom have looked promising at home in their two previous outings. If they are to stay up this season then it will be thanks to results and performances on their own patch. Their 3-0 opening defeat to Leicester was chastening but they were level with the Foxes until the second half. If they had more top-flight experience in their ranks, they may have been able to hold onto their lead in what eventually ended up being a 3-3 draw with Chelsea. Overall, it's an encouraging home run ahead of a test against a Burnley team better than their results would suggest.
A big problem for Burnley is how they fade in the second half. Five of the eight goals that they have conceded have come after the break. Although they have lost each of their two away fixtures thus far, they were unbeaten in their final four last season, so they have the pedigree. Burnley have only won one of their last six matches against West Brom and we don't necessarily see a rare win incoming. Back a draw between two evenly-matched sides.
