Kanu: Hero to Zero

Hal Robson-Kanu went from hero to zero as he scored the winning goal at Turf Moor for West Brom, to then being sent off moments later.

The Baggies picked up three vital points in 1-0 win and tough game at Turf Moor. Up until Kanu’s introduction the game had been played in a dull fashion, however the Welsh winger did make a difference after coming on.

The experienced striker scored the only goal of the game on the 70th minute mark with a tidy finish. However in a moment of madness, he was sent off just 13 minutes later as he caught Burnley fullback Matthew Lowton in the face with his elbow.

Burnley’s best chance of the game came from a Ben Mee header, however his shot was directed off target when really he should have scored into an open goal.

While West Brom’s 100% start to the season continues, it is matters off the pitch that will be concerning the Baggies fans. Centre back Jonny Evans was left out of the squad completely as his rumoured transfer to Manchester City comes ever closer.

Both teams next fixture is in the Carabao Cup second round in midweek. West Brom head off to Accrington Stanley, where some fans will inevitably ask, who are they? While Burnley face Blackburn Rovers in what is always a competitive Lancashire derby.
