Mark Lawrenson has backed Burnley to leave West Brom with all three points on Monday at the Hawthorns.

The BBC pundit has predicted that the Baggies will lose 1-0 against the Clarets, who are also without a win in the Premier League so far.

Slaven Bilic is boosted by the arrival of Karlan Grant on Thursday, with the former Huddersfield man set for his debut in the game.

Lawrenson has backed Burnley to be strong defensively in the game, something which will allow them to steal a goal at the other end.

“Burnley have lost all three of their league games, and these are worrying times,” he wrote in his BBC column.

“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.”

Sean Dyche’s side will be as desperate for three points as West Brom after both have failed to register a single victory so far.

West Brom have had a tough start to the season, but with games against Burnley, Brighton and Fulham coming up – they have a real chance to start picking up wins.

It all depends on which version of the Baggies turn up though, the fighting side from the draw against Chelsea, or the one that disappointed massively against Southampton.
