Burnley -

West Brom -

Both teams got off to winning starts in the Premier League this season and will be looking to extend their early 100% records.

Burnley have not beaten West Brom in eight years, with their last win over The Baggies coming back in 2009. Since then, it has been a run of four matches without a win (2 wins, 2 draws).

West Brom have never lost to Burnley in the Premier League.

Burnley will be glad this fixture is not being played at The Hawthorns as their last two visits there have resulted in successive 4-0 defeats.

Salomon Rondon scored in both matches between the clubs last season in the Premier League.

This is another rare encounter of two British Premier League managers going head-to-head, although Tony Pulis already prevailed in one ‘Battle Of Britain’ after getting the better of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth last week.

It’s 50 years since West Brom’s biggest win in this fixture, when they recorded an 8-1 win over Burnley back in November 1967.

Burnley’s record win in this fixture was in September 1951, when they ran out 6-1 winners at Turf Moor.

This is the 130th meeting between the two clubs. Of the previous 129, Burnley have won 45, West Brom have won 55 and there have been 29 draws.

Burnley’s last win over West Brom was back in 2009 when they prevailed 3-1 win in the FA Cup fourth round replay. Steven Thompson would be the hero that day as his double sent The Clarets through.
