Ronald Koeman wins over dressing room with tactical nous as Everton topple West Brom

22 Aug

He’d cheer them up more by buying some new players.

While Koeman could make changes from a bench that had cost £70m in fees, Albion’s subs included three teenagers.

“We have 10 days to do some business and fingers crossed we will,” said Pulis.

“I’ve only met the new owner once and obviously he doesn’t speak very good English so that was difficult, but hopefully he will understand the need for new players.

“This is the Premier League, it is the biggest in the world, and we need front line players, we don’t need back-ups. We need people who will go in the team and make a difference.”

WEST BROM (4-2-3-1): Foster 6; Dawson 6, McAULEY 7, Olsson 6, Evans 6; Fletcher 6, Yacob 5; Phillips 6 (Leko 69, 5), Berahino 5 (Lambert 79), Gardner 6 (McClean 69, 5); Rondon 6. Subs: Myhill, Morrison, Field, Wilson.
