    On that note, it's time for me to bid you a fond farewell. Thanks for your contributions today... especially your recommendations for Alan Irvine songs (81 mins). I'm off to listen to some Marvin Gaye/Guns N' Roses! Night.

  2. Post update

    Before then, however, MOTD 2 pundit Kevin Kilbane will be writing a column for this very website where he will analyse this afternoon's game at The Hawthorns. Look out for that later this evening.

  3. MOTD 2

    If you missed today's goals, or indeed need to catch up on Saturday's action, be sure to watch Match of the Day 2 this evening. The show is on BBC One in England, Wales and Northern Ireland at 22:30, while it's slightly later at 23:25 in Scotland.

    Lukas Jutkiewicz

    Ann Williamson: Lukas Jutkiewicz did OK at Bolton last season and I think we are missing him but he and Marvin Sordell are Championship at best. Not good enough for the Premier League.

  6. Can the Baggies keep their boing?

    It becomes slightly trickier for West Brom, who travel to Liverpool next weekend before successive home games against Manchester United and a resurgent Crystal Palace.

  7. Coming up for the Clarets

    What next for Burnley? Well, they visit Leicester City next weekend before back-to-back home games against West Ham and Everton. Surely they'll be targeting six points out of nine to kick-start their stuttering season?

  8. Manager reaction

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    More from Burnley manager Sean Dyche, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a good performance from them and a poor one from ourselves. The biggest learning curve in the Premier League is that you cannot turn up and not be right on top of your performance. We are growing into it and it is important we turn up ready to perform. We did not look right today. Today we looked unsure from the beginning.

    "Maybe the changes affected that, our midfield has played a big part for us and we had two players missing. But that is why it is important to have a squad. You have to come in and deliver with purpose and that was lacking today. WBA deserved it. Full credit to them. We knew the first goal was going to be important and after that there was no coming back."

  9. Manager reaction

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom manager Alan Irvine on BBC Sport: "Saido Berahino can be very good. He's a terrific lad and very, very talented. I spoke to him at half-time and said to be patient and continue making runs. He got his reward for continuing to do that. He's a model professional and has fantastic potential."

    Barry Mc Donnell: Burnley need Danny Ings and Sam Vokes fit as soon as possible. Starting to really feel for them.

    Mark Riley: As a Burnley fan all I can say is that was an embarrassing performance!!

    Matt Barnsley: A hard working team can get you places in the Championship. And I'm not convinced the quality of the league last year was great. Leicester were the only top top team last year. And they're currently holding their own.

    Alan Irvine

    West Brom manager Alan Irvine, speaking to Sky Sports: "We were terrific. You can never be 100% satisfied and there was a little spell in the second half I did not like but only five or six minutes. The rest of the time I was delighted.

    "It is bred from the work we have been doing and the way the players have applied themselves since day one. A few weeks ago I said we were closer to where we wanted to be. There is still work to do and tough games to come but it has been a great week and the players have got their reward.

    "I believe we have got a great group of lads but I also know how hard it is going to be to win games in this league. We will not get carried away. We have had a good start, and we have to build on that."

  13. Manager reaction

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "We never got started and never got to grips. It's important we grow and learn from it. Yes (it's our toughest day in the league). We had changes forced upon us, but it's important we deal with the changes. There were two horrible set-pieces from our point of view. You want players that come in to grip the shirt - I don't think we did that today, it'll come another day. We gave the ball away silly today."

  14. Chelsea to play at Twickenham?

    Twickenham

    Secondly, Chelsea have made an initial inquiry about playing at Twickenham while Stamford Bridge is redeveloped.

    The Rugby Football Union has confirmed it has been in contact with the Premier League club but said talks are at a very early stage. Twickenham is the home of English rugby union and the 82,000-capacity stadium has never hosted a football match.

    The RFU said: "We have had an enquiry from Chelsea FC but have not had any discussions of any substance."

  15. Sakho's apology

    Mamadou Sakho

    First of all, Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has apologised for making "a bad choice" by leaving Anfield before the Merseyside derby against Everton. The French international, 24, was left out of the squad and was pictured by a supporter heading out of the stadium.

    "I'm aware it was a bad choice from my part," Sakho wrote on his Facebook page.

    Here are a few key stats from this afternoon's one-sided clash at The Hawthorns.

  18. Text us on 81111

    James: I wonder how furious Liverpool fans would have been before the start of the season if you'd told them that after six matches they'd be beneath Palace, Leicester and West Brom in the table.

  19. Post update

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    Secondly, the players which epitomise this West Brom team of recent years - the likes of Graham Dorrans, Chris Brunt and James Morrison in midfield - all imposed themselves on the contest. They overran Burnley in the centre of the park.

  20. Post update

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    Two things struck me about West Brom today. Firstly, the impact of some of Alan Irvine's new boys - left-back Sebastien Pocognoli laid the platform for success with his marauding runs down the flank while Cristian Gamboa picked up an assist when he came on as a late substitute. In the centre of defence, Joleon Lescott was an absolute colossus.

  21. Player reaction

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom midfielder Chris Brunt: "We have good self belief and confidence to win games - we showed that today. The manager (Alan Irvine) has come in and got us organised and playing in the right way. We have a big squad of players and a good team spirit. From the start of this season we've been right on it."

  22. Player reaction

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom forward Saido Berahino, speaking to Sky Sports: "We were on it from the start. It just shows how good this group is. I just try to do my best, I managed to contribute with a couple of goals and I felt good. We have stuck together throughout this period and our results are paying off. We have to focus on Liverpool away now and make sure we get something there. But it has been a great week. Three wins."

  23. Post update

    Quality stuff from the Baggies then, who move up to 10th in the table, above both Liverpool and Everton to name but two.

  24. Post update

    Former England captain Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "The referee calls full-time to save Burnley any more embarrassment. Albion played well. Burnley and Sean Dyche will be disappointed not just with the scoreline but the opportunities they did not take and most of all the way Albion dominated the midfield. Burnley were second best from start to finish. They are going to find life difficult in the Premier League."

  26. FULL-TIME

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    West Brom's perfect afternoon - a dominant performance against a Burnley side who slump to the bottom of the Premier League table.

  27. Post update

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley

    Former England captain Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Good running off the ball and the pace of Cristian Gamboa made that goal. The pass was good, and he cut Burnley right open.

    "A 4-0 scoreline tells the story of the match. Burnley could have had goals in the second half, things have maybe not gone for them, but since the first goal they have been on the back foot."

  28. GOAL

    West Brom 4-0 Burnley - Graham Dorrans

    Lovely stuff from the Baggies, who make it four when Georgios Samaras plays a neat ball down the right for Cristian Gamboa who pulls the ball back for Graham Dorrans and the Scottish midfielder drills home a low shot.

    Graham Dorrans celebrates

    West Brom are running Burnley ragged now - Graham Dorrans driving into the penalty area and pushing back Ben Mee before unfurling a shot which finds the side-netting.

  37. SUBSTITUTION

    Martin McHugh: Each goal West Brom score now will lift them a position in the table.

    The Baggies, in 11th place as it stands, can move into seventh above Manchester United with four more goals.

  39. Post update

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    I feel like I'm kicking them while they are down, but Burnley are now bottom of the Premier League following that third West Brom goal.

    Sorry, Clarets fans.

  40. Post update

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    It's interesting to compare the different attire of the two fledgling Premier League managers. West Brom boss Alan Irvine has plumped for the tracksuit look, while Sean Dyche is in pristine white shirt and club tie. He could have arrived at the game straight from a Christening.

  41. Post update

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Lukas Jutkiewicz

    "Lukas Jutkiewicz's header was the first real test Ben Foster has had and Burnley's first effort on goal - after 66 minutes. Jutkiewicz has worked hard, and the fans have given him a round of applause for his effort. I thought Burnley would have signed few more players in the summer. They should have dug a little bit deeper if the aim is to try and stay in the Premier League."

  42. Post update

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    Better from Burnley as Marvin Sordell gets in behind the Baggies backline and picks out Ashley Barnes, but the striker blazes over.

  43. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    A final roll of the dice from Sean Dyche... Marvin Sordell replacing Lukas Jutkiewicz up front for the Clarets.

  44. GREAT SAVE!

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley

    Finally Burnley register an effort on goal - Lukas Jutkiewicz bringing a brilliant, almost point-blank, save out of Ben Foster with a header from Kieran Trippier's deep cross from the right.

    "It does not look like there is any way back now for Burnley. One goal can change things, but Sean Dyche doesn't have many options left. Alan Irvine is comparatively new to the managing game but he has a team who are experienced in the Premier League. And today West Brom have been too much for Burnley."

    Former England captain Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Burnley were caught there. The ball was played into Saido Berahino between Jason Shackell and Michael Duff and Berahino had too much pace for them. He thumped it with his right foot and Tom Heaton was not going to save that. It is a long way back for Burnley now."

  52. GOAL

    West Brom 3-0 Burnley - Saido Berahino

    Saido Berahino
    Saido Berahino
    Saido Berahino
    Saido Berahino

    West Brom part the Burnley defence like a hot knife through butter - Graham Dorrans being found in space 40 yards from goal and playing a perfect pass through to Saido Berahino who angles his shot across Tom Heaton and into the back of the net. The boy can finish.

  53. Post update

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    Sebastien Pocognoli has continued where he left off in the first half and he stands up a perfect cross to the back stick where Ben Mee does well to charge down Stephane Sessegnon's effort.

  54. Post update

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    Joleon Lescott realises West Brom need a bit more impetus and drives forward with the ball from the back, passes to Saido Berahino and when the ball breaks for Craig Gardner, a vicious shot flashes wide.

    Soccer Pundit: I've got the feeling the Baggies aren't through yet. Two or three more goals would surely finish the game.

    Anthony Shaw: I honestly can't see Burnley winning a game this season, never mind staying up!

    Agubata Odinaka: It's obvious academy youth product Saido Berahino will finish above record signing Brown Ideye on the scorers chart come May.

  56. Post update

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    West Brom are building patiently from the back, but that lack of urgency almost costs them when Burnley win the ball back and striker Ashley Barnes ends up being closed down in a dangerous area.

  57. YELLOW CARD

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    Nathaniel Chalobah's first action in Premier League football? A yellow card for a wild lunge at Craig Gardner. That's not even a booking in the Championship (see Danny Guthrie's challenge earlier today, 46 mins in the Reading v Wolves game).

  58. Post update

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    Former England captain Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Sean Dyche has obviously got to do something because Burnley ended that first half with their heads down. I cannot remember Ben Foster making a save. It looks like they will go to a 4-4-2 with Ashley Barnes joining Lukas Jutkiewicz up front."

  59. KICK-OFF

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    We're back under way with two new faces in the Burnley side - Ashley Barnes and Clarets debutant Nathaniel Chalobah replacing Steven Reid and Ross Wallace.

  61. Bad day to support a Milan team

    Albin Ekdal
    Image caption: Albin Ekdal (left) celebrates with his team-mates

    Ten-man Inter Milan suffered their first defeat of the Serie A season with a surprising 4-1 defeat against bottom side Cagliari.

    Albin Ekdal, who had scored three in 77 appearances for the Sardinian side, doubled his tally for the club with a 15-minute hat-trick.

    Inter captain Yuto Nagatomo was sent off in the 27th minute after picking up a second yellow card, while Nemanja Vidic conceded a penalty which was missed.

    Fierce city rivals AC Milan also had a man sent off in their 1-1 draw at Cesena.

    Davide Succi scored the opener before Adil Rami headed in the equaliser.

    Cristian Zapata was sent off in the 73rd minute for denying Gregoire Defrel a clear scoring opportunity.

    "Burnley have to show a bit more endeavour and ambition. The balance is not quite the way Sean Dyche would have wanted, and perhaps that is because of the resources he has, but they have to go forward a little bit more in the second half."

  64. HALF-TIME

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley

    Steve Bower

    BBC Match of the Day commentator at The Hawthorns

    West Brom fans

    "It's an uphill task for Burnley in the second half. Craig Dawson, the man they wanted to sign in the summer, scored and then Saido Berahino made it 2-0. West Brom in a commanding position."

  65. GOAL

    West Brom 2-0 Burnley - Saido Berahino

    Saido Berahino
    Saido Berahino scores

    To concede once from a corner is bad, to do so twice is almost criminal in the Premier League. James Morrison's centre from the left is flicked on at the near post by Graham Dorrans and Saido Berahino steps away from his marker to head home from six yards at the back stick.

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "There is a bit of frustration creeping in from Burnley. They are used to having a bit more of the ball in that central area and at half-time Sean Dyche has to tell his midfielders to provide more support for Lukas Jutkiewicz. He is up there as lone ranger, and in the Premier League that is very difficult.

    "There is very little going towards Ben Foster's goal. All the pressure is on Burnley."

  71. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Burnley

    Again West Brom load up an attack down the left and the ball eventually breaks for Craig Gardner on the edge of the area but the midfielder's powerful shot shaves the head of Steven Reid on its way out of play for a corner, which comes to nothing.

  72. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Burnley

    West Brom are buzzing about the pitch now, and Chris Brunt plays the perfect ball into space for Saido Berahino but the young striker checks his run and the split-second indecision sees the move break down.

    A long, raking Hollywood ball from Burnley's Steven Reid picks out Ross Wallace, who sloppily gifts possession back to the Baggies and the home side break. The pacy attack ends with Chris Brunt's deflected shot almost finding its way in at the near post via Michael Duff's touch.

    Former England defender Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "This is the kind of game Burnley need to get points from if they are to stay up. They have looked strong at the back but lightweight up front. It has given Sean Dyche a real problem and the season has only just started for them. Getting that first victory is very important. The same thing could have been said of WBA seven days ago but they have had a good week, with two wins."

    West Brom will be looking to young striker Saido Berahino for goals this afternoon, and the 21-year-old says he is feeling good about his game after hitting "rock bottom" last season.

    "I felt alone," reflected Berahino. "There was no-one I could go to in the club and get advice from.

    "Things have changed as last season I don't think the seniors knew who I was. Now we've got that relationship, they understand me and I understand them.

    "You mature quicker, playing a man's game, you have the senior lads that help you along with it as well. I would say maybe I learned that the harsh way last season. But I don't regret any of it, it's made me who I am now so I just look forward."

    West Brom v Burnley (16:00 BST)

    Burnley: Only five clubs have recorded four goalless draws in a row in the top flight, including West Brom in 1983.

    Will the Clarets make it six clubs? Their last three matches have all ended goalless and with both Burnley and West Brom managing just four league goals between them this season, the chances of another 0-0 must be high.

  109. West Brom v Burnley (16:00 BST)

    BBC Match of the Day commentator John Motson

    MOTD2 Extra

    "West Brom played quite well at Tottenham last week. They had 11 new players this summer - the most of any side. Manager Alan Irvine has had to try to mould them. I saw little signs of recovery last week. They've been described as a yo-yo club, but this is their fifth consecutive season in the top flight."

    "This is a game that West Brom will be expected to win, and if they do, it will be a victory of the type that can help avoid the nervous dramas they experienced at the end of last season.

    "Burnley, though, will look at West Brom's recent home league record that shows only two wins in this calendar year, and arrive at The Hawthorns with hopes high they can get their first win back in the big time.

    "They've already shown they will be well organised and have a solid foundation but have really struggled in front of goal. Scott Arfield's strike against Chelsea remains their only goal and unless that improves, it could be a very long season for the Clarets."

    "Kenny Jackett will be delighted his team has scored three, but at 3-2 up Wolves had a short corner and got it wrong. They were trying to play the clock down but within a minute Reading had gone down the other end and scored the equaliser. They should have gone for the fourth because they were in the ascendancy.

  126. GOAL

    Reading 3-3 Wolves - Glenn Murray

    This game has had it all - the icing on the cake an 89th-minute rasper into the top corner which could save a point for Reading. Jamie Mackie holds off his marker and lays the ball into the path of Glenn Murray who lets fly and watches the ball ripple the net via a deflection. Top drawer.

  128. GOAL

    Reading 2-3 Wolves - Nick Blackman own goal

    Have Wolves found themselves a winner? Bakary Sako's corner is glanced just over the line from six yards out - we initially thought it was Wolves' Dave Edwardsbut it's actually Reading's Nick Blackman with an own goal.

    I say just because the ball was cleared - but only after it had crossed the whitewash. A top decision from the linesman.

    "For Wolves, it looked as if Jordan Obita had the ball under control but he turned back to his own goal and kicked it straight to Lee Evans, who buried it.

    "Then for the Reading goal Simon Cox laid a lovely little pass onto Jake Taylor, who had an easy little finish. Well he made it look easy - he just rolled it past the keeper. But there was lovely weight on the pass from Cox. Taylor didn't have to break stride. What a game we have got now."

  146. GOAL

    Reading 1-1 Wolves - James Henry
