Lambert, Fletcher and Evans stepped up when West Brom needed them

Tony Pulis applauds Ricky Lambert who came off the bench to rescue a point for West Brom in their 1-1 draw against West Ham
West Ham United took the lead via a moment of Brilliance from Mauro Zarate, but West Bromwich Albion managed to level.
Tony Pulis invites young fans to join him at the podium in the press conference after West Brom's 1-1 draw against West Ham

West Brom's 1-1 draw with West Ham at Upton Park owed much to a trio of experienced players who helped to lead a second half revival after a torrid first 45 minutes, in which Tony Pulis' side were lucky to only be one goal down.

The majority of the plaudits will go to Rickie Lambert, whose shot deflected in off Winston Reid for West Brom's leveller. The former Liverpool man certainly made a positive impact having been brought on at half time by Pulis.

'Deutscher Fußballmeister' Bastian Schweinsteiger impresses at United

The ESPN FC crew discuss Manchester United's performance against Leicester City
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner was unimpressed with Man United during their 1-1 draw at Leicester City.

Amid the swirl of conjecture about how dull Manchester United are to watch at present, there are still some bright spots to pick from each game.

Either side of a limp team display against PSV Eindhoven last week, Bastian Schweinsteiger had reason to be satisfied after a week in which he inspired one win and then, seven days later, scored his first United goal.

With United trailing at Leicester to another Jamie Vardy goal, Schweinsteiger lost marker Shinji Okazaki at a corner and headed in a 45th...

Arsene Wenger unfairly criticised for playing Alexis Sanchez

Despite Alexis Sanchez picking up an apparent injury, Arsene Wenger insists he was not wrong to play him.

How could Arsene Wenger be so stupid? As Alexis Sanchez hobbled down the tunnel at Carrow Road on Sunday, any optimism surrounding Arsenal's prospects for the season seemed to disappear with him.

Sanchez suffered a hamstring injury during the 1-1 draw with Norwich City and faces a layoff at a crucial point in the season. The forward is unlikely to be fit for next week's Champions League Group F match against Olympiakos, a game Arsenal need to win by two goals to qualify for the knockout phase of...
