West Bromwich Albion and Burnley will be desperate to pick up a positive result when they lock horns in the Premier League Monday clash.

It was the top flight's first goalless match of the season which did neither team any favours in a bid to move clear of the relegation zone.

The pair had shipped a combined 21 goals this term but the 47th match of the top-flight campaign ended 0-0 to leave both sides still winless and those who had paid £14.95 to watch on TV feeling a little short-changed.

"I only question my centre forwards if they're not creating and getting on the end of chances, I don't when they miss chances as long as they are in there", Dyche said, in quotes reported by Lancs Live.

West Brom's Karlan Grant was denied a debut goal by a tight offside call, while Chris Wood hit the bar for the visitors.

The exercise aims to strengthen India's force by increasing coordination between the navies of the participating countries. All four participants of the Malabar naval exercise will engage in enhancing safety and security in the maritime domain.

West Brom came close again in the 58th minute when visiting keeper Nick Pope parried a Grady Diangana shot and Branislav Ivanovic had the rebound blocked by a defender. "We've had three out of four away games, even though it's awkward times it's still statistically hard to win away games".

Ashley Westwood's cross found Wood unmarked at the far post in the closing stages, but the Burnley striker headed against the bar.

West Brom have 2 points after 5 games disputed since his return to the Premier and is fourth from the tail.

"With the quality of chances we had, we could have got three points".

"I plan, we plan, we think, we add the detail, we look at ourselves".
