Burnley 9/5 to beat West Brom in Saturdays Premier League matchup

Competition: Premier League

Market: Burnley to beat West Brom

Odds: 9/5 @ Bet365

As Burnley and West Brom will return to action following the international break, Sean Dyche’s Clarets will travel to the Hawthorns knowing that his side still stands an outside chance of securing European football come the end of the season.

For te struggling Baggies it appears that their relegation to the Championship will be made official sooner rather than later. Despite bringing in former Newcastle and West Ham boss Alan Pardew, the Midlands side have still recorded just three wins in the Premier League season and are now chasing down a seven-point deficit as they find themselves sat rock bottom of the table. With their recent form showing no signs of improvement and a long list of disciplinary issues off the pitch, the Baggies have now lost their last eight Premier League matches on the bounce and have now kept just one clean sheet since the turn of the New Year. It hasn’t just been defensively where West Brom have struggled, with no player making double digits for goals this season, the Baggies also boast the worst attacking record in the league.

While the hosts may be struggling at the foot of the Premier League table, Burnley have enjoyed their most successful campaign in the top-flight and a record-breaking year looks to continue on Saturday. Now sat seventh in the table and five points adrift of Arsenal, Sean Dyche will still be dreaming of European football being played at Turf Moor next year. While they may have struggled to keep up the pace entering 2018, Burnley look set to guarantee a top half finish at the least and have now lost just once in their last six appearances. Their form is best summed up by Ashley Barnes, the forward now has three goals in his last three outings and has been rumored for an England call up.
