West Bromwich Albion

Are Divock Origi, Saido Berahino worth all the hype? The stats are intriguing

The ESPN FC crew discuss potential moves before the end of the transfer window, whether or not Mario Balotelli will leave Liverpool and Diego Costa's diving.

How do you build for the future in January?

The pressures of the midseason transfer window are largely focused on the here and now. Teams buy in the winter in order to strengthen for the next five months, whether it be for a title race, European push or relegation battle; they don't generally spend with the next five years in mind. But this season has seen several intriguing transfer stories in which the needs of the present and the future overlap.

Unlikely heroes help West Brom tough out hard-fought draw with Everton

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas' missed penalty against West Bromwich Albion cost his side the opportunity to cap their first win in eight matches.

It was two of West Brom's more unheralded players who earned the plaudits after Albion's hard-fought 0-0 draw against Everton at Goodison Park. The result maintains Tony Pulis' unbeaten start to his tenure as West Brom Head Coach.

The stand-out player on the pitch was Albion's Claudio Yacob, who put on a master class in the defensive midfield position. It was the kind of performance Yacob was producing regularly during his first season at The Hawthorns, rather than the displays the Argentine international...

Kevin Mirallas pays the penalty as Everton's malaise continues

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas' missed penalty against West Bromwich Albion cost his side the opportunity to cap their first win in eight matches.

Three quick thoughts from Everton and West Brom's 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Monday night.

1. Mirallas pays the penalty

There is an automatic assumption that a penalty equates to a goal for Everton. Leighton Baines is not just among the best from 12 yards now but in the Premier League's history. His record for Everton stands at 15 out of 16. It is almost Le Tissier-esque. While Baines was denied by David De Gea in October, there seemed no earthly reason why he would not take a spot kick.

Saido Berahino's winner bails out West Brom over Hull

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis spoke to the press following his side's victory over Hull City, and noted that his side still has a lot of work to do.

It was a tale of two strikers as West Brom beat Hull 1-0 in Tony Pulis' first league game in charge of the club. Brown Ideye's scoring woes continued while Saido Berahino's reputation simply grows bigger by the game, as he grabbed the winning goal in a tight, tense affair at the Hawthorns.

A lot of Albion's expectations at the start of the season revolved around Ideye living up to his club record 10 million-pounds price tag, unfortunately he has shown absolutely no sign of being worth that amount...

Pulis' West Brom changes eagerly anticipated

New West Brom manager Tony Pulis started off his reign with a resounding 7-0 win against Gateshead in the FA Cup but says the January transfer window will be huge for his new side.

West Brom's clash with Hull at the Hawthorns this weekend is Tony Pulis' first league game as Albion's head coach, and after a week's coaching time with the squad, it should offer an interesting comparison between the style he will use compared to his predecessor.

While it is unrealistic to expect a complete overnight transformation into the kind of side Pulis wants, there will be some notable changes in both personnel and style compared to the way Albion played under Alan Irvine.

Crunch Berahino decision facing new boss Pulis

New West Brom manager Tony Pulis started off his reign with a resounding 7-0 win against Gateshead in the FA Cup but says the January transfer window will be huge for his new side.

West Brom's newly appointed coach, Tony Pulis, has already stated that Albion need to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window, with chairman Jeremy Peace happy to sanction a spending spree.

However, it has been suggested that the war chest Pulis will be given to make signings will be funded by the sale of star striker Saido Berahino, with Liverpool being strongly linked.

While some funds are available without selling Berahino, it is clear that Pulis wants to make several additions...
