West Bromwich Albion seek to keep their hopes of remaining in the Premier League alive when they travel to Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
The Baggies are currently 19th in the table, 12 points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United in the same number of matches, while Burnley is 15th in the division, now with eight points ahead of the relegation zone.
There were fears that Burnley could be pulled into a relegation battle when they drew 1-1 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on February 6, the result left the Clarets in 17th place on the table.
Sean DycheThe team lost 2-0 at home to Bournemouth in the FA Cup, but managed to return to winning ways away at Crystal Palace last week, leaving three unanswered goals for the Eagles at Selhurst Park.
Burnley then prevented 18th-placed Fulham from scoring three points on Wednesday night, when he recovered and drew 1-1 with the Cottagers at Turf Moor.
The Clarets are now 15th in the division, with an eight point advantage in the relegation zone, and it is difficult to imagine them involved in any serious problem, especially if they manage to beat West Brom.
Burnley has won a third of his 12 Premier League home games this season and will face the Baggies who have the second worst away record in England’s first division in 2020-21.
West Brom, meanwhile, will enter the competition this weekend after a 1-1 draw to boost morale with Manchester United.
The Baggies scored early Mbaye Diagne before Bruno fernandes leveled just before the break but Sam AllardyceBárbara’s team had the best chances in the second period and undoubtedly deserved to guarantee the three points.
The fighters are running out of time to escape the relegation zone, having added just 13 points from 24 games this season, thanks to two wins and seven draws.
Allardyce’s team is 12 points behind 17th-placed Newcastle in the same number of matches, while it is also six points behind Fulham in 18th, which is an indication of the size of their task when it comes to avoiding the fall.
West Brom, in fact, recorded a 1-0 win over Burnley when the two teams last faced each other at Turf Moor in August 2017, although they have only lost one of the last eight league games with the Clarets.
