(Reuters) – BURNLEY 0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1 Hal Robson-Kanu grabbed a 71st-minute winner and was sent off 12 minutes later as West Bromwich Albion beat Burnley 1-0 in the Premier League at Turf Moor on Saturday. The Wales forward bustled past Stephen Ward and James Tarkowski before firing home a low drive to give the visitors the lead. But he was shown a straight red card after his leading arm struck Burnley defender Matthew Lowton in the face as they challenged for a ball in the air. Burnley, who enjoyed a shock win at champions Chelsea in their opening game, had chances in the first half with Icelandic winger Johann Berg Gudmudsson twice going close.
