Premier League: Ajayi Benched As West Brom Winless Run Continue After Draw Vs Burnley

Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi did not feature for West Bromwich Albion who were forced to a 0-0 draw at home by Burnley, in the Premier League on Monday night, Completesports.com reports.

West Brom are still in search of a first Premier League win after five games (three defeats, two draws).

Ajayi who was in action for the Eagles in their two friendly games against Algeria and Tunisia, has made four appearances in the league.

It was a game West Brom believe they should have taken all three points having made more attempts on goal.

The Baggies went close as early as the 4th minute after Matheus Pereira found Filip Krovinović on the edge of the box and the Croatian curled an effort just wide of the post.

In the 20th minute Karlan Grant went close after Pereira slotted him through on goal, but his left-footed effort rose just above the bar.

Burnley had their own opportunity which came in the 28th minute but Sam Johnstone saved excellently from a close-range Ashley Barnes effort. 

On the hour mark West Brom could have broken the deadlock after Grady Diangana worked his magic then hit a powerful strike which Nick Pope saved well. 

Four minutes later Burnley almost scored through Chris Wood but his header came off the bar.

In the 69th minute Johnstone made a superb save from a Barnes header, Wood headed the rebound against the bar, but was offside.

And with 11 minutes left in the game Pope made a super save to deny Pereira at the backpost following a lofted Townsend cross. 

And at Elland Road Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Leeds United 1-0.

A Raul Jimenez goal in the 70th minute sealed the win for Wolves.
