West Brom's struggles on both ends magnified in Man City loss

Champions Manchester City again made light of the absence of strikers as they cruised to a 3-1 win at West Brom.

Individual errors from some of their most reliable performers were the root cause for West Brom's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester City at The Hawthorns on Friday, as the pressure on head coach Alan Irvine continues to mount.

Man City were the toughest fixture in Albion's Christmas/New Year programme, but it was the manner of the first-half display that was concerning. Despite carving out three decent openings for themselves, West Brom's defensive frailties meant they were never in the game.

Premier League's Best XI outside the established order

Prem XI
ESPN FC's Best of the Rest.

Some facts get quoted so often they become footballing cliches. Seamus Coleman cost 60,000 pounds. Rickie Lambert used to work in a beetroot factory. And now there is the newest: Wilfried Bony has scored more Premier League goals than anyone else in 2014.

There are circumstances to explain what, at first, seemed a strange statistic. Luis Suarez, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez spent only part of the calendar year in England. Daniel Sturridge and Sergio Aguero missed significant parts of it because...

West Brom Report Card: A summary of the Baggies' Premier League season

West Brom manager Alan Irvine expects young striker Saido Berahino to return in good form soon.

With the Premier League season edging towards its halfway point, who has starred for West Brom and will Alan Irvine last the remainder of the campaign? Here's a look at how the Baggies have fared so far.

Grade: D

Your Season So Far -- In A Sentence

It's been a mixed bag this season; the results haven't been awful but a lot of the performances have been poor and incredibly frustrating to watch.

This would have to be West Brom's 1-0 win over Aston Villa; the first win over their Midlands...

Promising start turns sour for West Brom at QPR

Charlie Austin stole the show with a hat-trick as QPR recovered from two goals down at home to West Brom to win 3-2.

Charlie Austin proved to be the difference as West Brom let a two-goal lead slip away at Loftus Road against QPR.

While QPR's leading scorer continued to impress, The Baggies' top marksman, Saido Berahino, was left on the bench until the 69th minute. West Brom manager Alan Irvine said after the game that Albion needed to be more clinical, and you can't help but think that the result may have been different had Berahino not started on the bench.

Record signing Brown Ideye continued as the lone...
