In his weekly predictions column for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson backed a 1-0 away win for Sean Dyche's side.

Justifying his pick, Lawro claimed: "Burnley have lost all three of their league games, and these are worrying times. They don't appear to have enough strength in depth in their squad.

"West Brom have at least got a point on the board, but I have a feeling Sean Dyche's men will dig in to make things difficult for the Baggies, and they could nick their first win. They need it."

Meanwhile, Nigerian singer-songwriter Rema - Lawro's sparring partner for the week - went for a 3-2 win for the hosts.

The last time the two sides met, back in 2018, goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes saw the Clarets earn a 2-1 away victory.
