Joseph Masi has confirmed that West Brom are ‘sweating’ on the fitness of Robert Snodgrass as he has a ‘bruised knee’ ahead of their trip to face Burnley.
The former West Ham United man will be hoping that he will regain his fitness in time for kick-off, although Sam Allardyce may not want to risk him from the start given his lack of training.
Snodgrass would be a big loss to West Brom
If Snodgrass is not able to start for the Hawthorns faithful, then it would be a big loss for them in what looks set to be a must-win game against Sean Dyche’s men as they look to climb closer to them in the Premier League table and ease the huge worries of relegation back down to the EFL Championship.
The Scotland international is a great character to have both on and off the pitch, as Allardyce revealed upon signing him for the Baggies that he heard that he was ‘exceptional’ in the dressing room.
Should West Brom start Snodgrass?
At 33 years of age now, he has not lost his ability to get stuck in for his teammates either, as he has won no fewer than 4.7 of his duels a match in the top flight so far in the 2020/21 term, as well as averaging 1.7 tackles and 1.3 clearances per appearance (Sofascore).
Nonetheless, Albion may have to find a way to win without the winger with the clash fast approaching.
