LIVE: Updates from West Brom vs. Burnley

The Baggies come into this match on the back of that win over Steve Bruce's Tigers and a stunning away victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane last Sunday.

Still seventeenth in the Premier League table, however, they desperately need to start picking up points at the Hawthorns.

Burnley, on the other hand, start with new man George Boyd sitting behind Lukas Jutkiewicz in attack.

Sean Dyche's men are still winless this season but encouraging displays against Manchester United and Crystal Palace, in matches which ended goalless, offer hope.

West Brom: Foster, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Dorrans, Morrison, Gardner, Brunt, Sessegnon, Berahino. Subs: Myhill, Gamboa, McAuley, Yacob, Mulumbu, Blanco, Samaras.

Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee, Arfield, Wallace, Reid, Kightly, Boyd, Jutkiewicz. Subs: Gilks, Chalobah, Sordell, Barnes, Ward, Keane, Long.
