West Brom secured a sixth consecutive season of Premier League football mainly down to the arrival of Tony Pulis in January and Saido Berahino's goals.
Replacing Alan Irvine, Pulis turned a struggling side into a compact, organised team who pulled clear of the relegation zone and to mid-table security with wins over the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

GK Ben Foster, 6 -- A below average season for West Brom's...
The 3-0 win over Chelsea in West Brom's final home game of the season. Although some will say title-winners Chelsea had nothing to play for and Albion were aided by Cesc Fabregas' red card, it's arguably the best they've ever played in the Premier League. The 1-0 away win at Old Trafford was pretty special too,...
As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.
Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

Christian Benteke has been in great form -- nine goals in his last eight matches...
West Brom's 3-0 win over Chelsea at The Hawthorns was undoubtedly their best performance this season, and it once more owed a lot to the contribution of Saido Berahino.
After eight games without a goal, Berahino returned to form with two goals to inflict only a third defeat of the season on the Premier League champions. That took Berahino's tally for the season to 20 in all competitions, with 14 of those coming in the league. It's a stunning contribution for a player in only his second full season...
WEST BROMWICH, England -- Three points on West Brom's 3-0 win vs. Chelsea in the Premier League.
1. Baggies show their style
If Liverpool chose R.E.M.'s "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" to prelude Steven Gerrard's send-off on Saturday, the Hawthorns' DJ selected the quartet's "Shiny Happy People" before their final home game of West Brom's season.
Tony Pulis, the cast-iron managerial guarantee signed in double triplicate for avoiding relegation, has done what he does...
