Burnley vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview
Burnley vs West Brom
Date: 20 January 2023, Friday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley host West Brom in one of the most exciting ties of Gameweek No 28 in the Championship on Friday night at Turf Moor.
Clarets are flying high under Vincent Kompany this season. They are five points clear at the top of the league table at the moment.
The automatic promotion is all but secured with as many as 16 points between Burnley and third-placed Watford at the moment.
Kompany’s men have 13 wins in the last 15 outings across competitions. The lone two defeats in this streak have come to the likes of Sheffield United (the second-placed team in the Championship) and Manchester United (in the League Cup).
The latest of the team’s successes came six days ago when center-back Louis Beyer notched his first goal of the season eight to give Burnley a precious three-pointer late in the game against Coventry (also at Turf Moor).
Clarets will be seriously tested here given WBA’s form. The Baggies will travel to Turf Moor on the back of four subsequent league wins.
Spanish manager Carlos Corberan is doing a great job on West Brom’s bench. Albion broke into the top-six in the Championship ladder after the mentioned thread.
The Baggies have notched at least two goals in four of the last five games in all competitions. The problem for Corberan ahead of this tie is the fact they have shipped three at Chesterfield and two at Luton Town in the previous two away matches across competitions.
Fatigue may play a role here because West Brom had an FA Cup replay against Chesterfield on Tuesday evening. Corberan did rotate his squad on the occasion but if you combine that game with West Brom’s recent defensive form, you won’t get a positive picture for the Spanish manager.
