A frenetic and at times chaotic match ends all square.
Both sides have given everything and share a clean sheet, but there's nothing to separate them for a lack of goals.

Corner to Burnley
West Brom are finishing strong and they are the ones pushing,
Burnley should be winning this game but they're on the backfoot now. Dyche looks happy with the draw now but Bilic wants more.
West Brom in possession midway inside their own half.
Just minutes left now plus stoppage time.
So many good deliveries, so many great catches. Get a head on it!
Pope keeping Burnley level now. It's end-to-end but the kind of end-to-end that has no goals and little quality.
Diangana, Krovinovic and Townsend still look so lively. They work the ball into the box and...
Pope pulls off a brilliant save at the feet of Pereira who scuffs his shot into the ground.
- OffAshley BarnesBurnley
- OnJay RodriguezBurnley
Former West Brom man Jay Rodriguez is on for Burnley, in place of Barnes.
Attack, attack, attack.
A rare moment of calm in this second half but McNeil is still making a real nuisance of himself.
It's all a bit scrappy as West Brom try and slow it all down again.
- OffKarlan GrantWest Bromwich Albion

Grant's debut ends without a goal, and he's replaced by Callum Robinson, fresh from some self-isolation.

- OffJóhann Berg GudmundssonBurnley
- OnRobbie BradyBurnley
Gudmundsson makes way for Brady.
McNeil into Barnes and it's another brilliant save by Johnstone!
Burnley all over the Baggies.
Pope plays in McNeil who drifts pass Gallagher. He spins into the middle of the pitch, picks out Barnes who sends it right back but McNeil's finishing is awry and he puts the ball wide.
As things stand, a draw is a fair result, but 0-0 just doesn't feel right.
We've had a few great saves and the woodwork's been involved, and at the very least we should have one goal.
Yet here we are.
Free-kick to West Brom. Pereira straight into Pope's arms.
He has to score!
Wood with a free header on the edge of the six-yard box - his spiritual home.
He can see the flight of the ball but misstimes it completely and hits the bar.
Ivanovic is playing so well in both boxes, and he looks as likely to score as anyone.
The Baggies are on top and Burnley look a little stunned. Just need a goal.
Lovely stuff from the Baggies as Diangana and Krovinovic knock it about down the right. Bilic gives them a well-deserved clap.
Baggies piling on the pressure.
CHAOS! What a scramble! Burnley survive! Livermore forces a save off the line from Pope and then Ivanovic does the same moments later. It's pinball football and eventually a goalkick. Ivanovic can't believe it.
Brownhill sends it up and over, Hegazi heads it out.
Pereira launches a counter and finds Krovinovic. Burnley clear their lines with a big hoof but it's faster football from West Brom.
This is what we're here for!
After much hype, Gudmundsson sends it straight into the arms of Sam Johnstone.
- Yellow cardJake LivermoreWest Bromwich Albion

West Brom have not left the tunnel. It's all Burnley.
This game really needs a goal and Burnley are going for it.
Burnley in possession and they've kicked us off in the second half with a good tempo.
The first half was a game of two defences, but we could yet have another 4-4 thriller on our hands.
No changes for either side at half-time.
It will surprise very few that the first 45 minutes between these two teams has finished goalless.
Barnes had the best chance of the half while Grant was a inch offside for his almost-opener.
Both teams need the points so we might see more in the second 45. Stay with us.
Pieters is playing very well against Diangana, shutting him down one on one.
We'll have two minutes of stoppage time.
Ivanovic has played so well alongside Hegazi.
They've completely nullified Burnley's long-ball threat and Wood has barely had a look in. McNeil, too, has looked a blunt instrument.
BIlic is calling on his side to show more determination. I think we've seen much more from them in the last 20 minutes.
Dyche is also a pocket of passion on the sidelines. It's some great managerial yelling.
Grant thinks he has a debut goal for West Brom with a bullet header but he's called offside and it's a correct call.
Actually, it's so marginal. It's a toe and an armpit.
- Yellow cardCharlie TaylorBurnley
Tarkowski is yelling at his backline after Pereira forces a corner.
Better from the Baggies...much better.
Swung in low and Ivanovic so nearly gets a shot away. Huge chance for the old-school fantasy football favourite.
Taylor picks up a booking moments later.
Burnley are getting a little frustrated with the Baggies now who are doing a brilliant job of slowing absolutely everything down, to the extent that I wonder what has honestly happened in this match.
That Barnes shot is pretty much it so far. They are cancelling each other out.
Kravinovic finds Furlong in the box but he can't quite bring it down for the shot. Pereira the architect again finding Krovinovic
Good refereeing from Anthony Taylor who plays advantage before bring back for a Burnley free-kick. Cool as ice and a set-piece in a dangerous position.
The Baggies set up with two in the wall. McNeil alongside Westwood.
McNeil swings and there's a tumble in the box.
Barnes gets to the ball and Johnstone pulls off a remarkable save from his rocket shot on the half-volley!
VAR have a look at any potential foul play in the box but play continues.
Dyche will be the happier manager in this opening 23 minutes. Burnley are like an impenetrable Spartan Phalanx and West Brom are like a slightly blunt wooden spear. So, basically, there's no danger for the Clarets.
And every so often Burnley slip in and attack themselves. Barnes goes close this time but Johnstone catches and nullifies the striker who had the beating on Hegazi and Ivanovic.
West Brom have slowed this game right down now. But they need to be quick because Burnley are so quick to keep their shape.
The Baggies must make things happen and catch the Burnley defence off guard. It's a snails pace game.
Pope tries to pick out Wood now but once again Ivanovic is there.
Pereira is trying desperately hard to work something through the middle for the Baggies but it's a lot of sideways and backwards passes. Dyche is on the touchline keeping his side in shape and it's working.
Gallagher has had a few smart touch for the Baggies on his debut too, can he turn the tide the evening?
Burnley's full-backs are pushing forward now and giving the Clarets another dimension. They're playing much better than the Baggies and can leapfrog them in the table with a win here.
Not that that's saying much.
Free-kick to West Brom, Pope makes a great catch.
West Brom taking the sting out of this Burnley pressure with some backwards passing.
They lump it up top now and Pieters heads clear. It's ping pong, long-ball stuff so far.
Pieters is in for Bardsley today who tested positive for Coronavirus.
McNeil swings in and again Ivanovic heads out - he's a mountain. He's there again as Burnley come again and it's a great spell of pressure by the Clarets.
Burnley are going old school Burnley and looking for the long balls up to Chris Wood.
But right up the other end Krovinovic has a go at goal.
They work it to him from a smart corner but his low strike is less than a yard wide.
McNeil threatens the Baggies backline early on but Ivanovic is on hand to head clear this time. Clarets making the most of a quick start.
- 1st Half
THREE MINUTE WARNING
DYCHE MIX UP
Amid all the West Brom debuts, Gudmundsson and Pieters replace Phil Bardsley and Dale Stephens for Burnley.
HOW THINGS STAND
So, basically. things can barely get worse for either side.
Burnley are winless and pointless in three, while West Brom have managed a draw among three losses.
Tonight, somebody has to win some points. The Baggies are 18th, the Clarets are 20th. It's poor, but something has got to give.
Conor Gallagher, who joined West Brom this summer on a season-long loan from Chelsea, will be making his first top-flight appearance.
