WBA lack creativity

West Bromwich Albion

WBA need Pulis

West Bromwich Albion

International break comes at right time for West Brom

Yannick Bolasie finished off a wonderful move by Crystal Palace and Yohan Cabaye notched a late penalty to secure a 2-0 win over West Brom at Selhurst Park.

The international break is arriving at a perfect time for Tony Pulis after West Brom slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

All of the optimism that was generated by a good win and performance against local rivals Aston Villa has disappeared after two defeats in a week, with Pulis' side surrendering a 2-0 lead against Everton at The Hawthorns and then simply surrendering against Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Welshman now has two weeks to work on a plan and...

West Brom's defensive frailties exposed against Everton

Three second-half goals and a brace from Romelu Lukaku saw Everton come from behind to win 3-2 over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

West Brom fell to Everton on Monday in a 3-2 defeat, a disappointment after putting in one of their best home performances of the season for the first hour of the match.

Manager Tony Pulis wanted his players to continue from where they left off against Aston Villa in terms of style and intent, which they certainly did. Against a side who are very good in possession, Albion more than matched Everton in terms of their use of the ball. They weren't creating masses of chances; they simply got into...

West Brom's Salomon Rondon gets chance to impress vs. Everton

Salomon Rondon's goal was the lone West Brom score against a Stoke City side playing with nine men.
Early returns on Salomon Rondon have been good, he'll get another chance when West Brom host Everton.

West Brom face Everton still looking for their first home win of the season, and will be hoping that record signing Salomon Rondon can prove that the club have finally moved on from Romelu Lukaku, who will be lining up for the opposition.

It's inevitable that any striker Albion sign will be compared to Belgian international Lukaku, who had a stunning season on loan at The Hawthorns before joining Everton. Lukaku is the best striker the club have had in the Premier League, in terms of both number...

Could Gerard Deulofeu spark Everton's dormant attack at West Brom?

Everton manager Roberto Martinez praised West Brom's defensive record this season and cites it will be a tough ask to break down their defence.

The defence has taken the plaudits on the road for Everton in the opening games this season. A clean sheet in each of the club's first three league games on the road this season is an unexpected turn for those in royal blue ahead of a Monday trip to West Brom.

Manager Roberto Martinez recently acknowledged that this team is not built to keep clean sheets -- the focus is very much on attacking and scoring goals -- so those defensive figures are a welcome bonus.

Yet such credentials could face...

Saido Berahino and Darren Fletcher power West Brom past Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood remains defiant despite another damaging defeat, this time at the hands of West Brom.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis hails want-away striker Saido Berahino after scoring his side's winner against Aston Villa.

West Bromwich Albion kept up their unbeaten away record with a 1-0 victory over local rivals Aston Villa, with the winner coming through Saido Berahino who continues to build bridges with the club's supporters.

Just over two weeks since tweeting that he wouldn't play for the club again, Tony Pulis restored Berahino to his starting line-up on the left wing and his faith was restored when the England Under 21 striker deflected James Morrison's shot into the Villa net.

Berahino received a mixed reception...

Tony Pulis must take handbrake off at West Brom for Villa clash

West Brom boss Tony Pulis says he was pleased with his side's draw against Southampton last time out.

West Brom head to rivals Aston Villa on Saturday, looking to avenge two consecutive defeats in a week to their local rivals last season. A large portion of the blame for those defeats landed at the feet of boss Tony Pulis and West Brom fans will be looking for him to turn that around in this season's fixture.

Albion's start to the season has been far from scintillating, with one victory and only three goals scored in five games. There are already murmurs of discontent among the fans regarding both...
