Pardew to make 1 change – Predicted 3-5-2 West Brom line-up to face Burnley

Predicted West Bromwich Albion Line-up To Face Burnley In The Premier League

Bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion host Burnley at the Hawthorns Stadium on Saturday with the Baggies being in desperate need of a win. Defeating Sean Dyche’s Clarets will be no easy task since Burnley have consistently been a part of the top-10, throughout the season so far.

With the season nearing its end, it is imperative that West Brom put in a solid performance and spark a late resurgence to finish the season on a high.


Probable West Brom XI

Manager: Alan Pardew

Formation: 3-5-2

Ben Foster (GK)

Foster will take up his usual role between the sticks for the Baggies on Saturday.

Jonny Evans (CB)

Evans has been a pivotal player for the club throughout the season and he should retain his spot in the heart of the defence.

Ahmed Hegazy (CB)

Hegazy should join Evans at the back and it is important for them to be at their best against an unpredictable Burnley attack.

Craig Dawson (CB)

Dawson should complete the defence. He works well with Hegazy and Evans and it will be interesting to see how they fare against Burnley.

Kieran Gibbs (LWB)

Gibbs should be deployed in this role once more on Saturday.

Chris Brunt (CM)

Brunt is effective at controlling the pace of the game and his experience will also help West Brom.

Claudio Yacob (CM)

Yacob often injects a sense of freshness in the middle of the park and he is likely to be deployed in his usual role this weekend.

Jake Livermore (CM)

Livermore is expected to join Brunt and Yacob in the midfield area.

Jay Rodriguez

Oliver Burke (RWB)

After a lacklustre display from Allan Nyom in this role against Bournemouth, Burke should return to the line-up since he can offer creativity going forward.

Salomon Rondon (CF)

Rondon is likely to take up his usual role up front but it is crucial that he gets his name on the scoresheet.

Jay Rodriguez (CF)

Rondon should be joined by Rodriguez and a lot will depend on the duo.
