West Brom 3 Crystal Palace 2: Baggies first-half blitz secures crucial win over Eagles

Well, on the evidence of the last few days, the penny might finally dropped for West Brom’s former England Under-21s striker.

About time, too. After sulking and moaning for a year over the club’s refusal to sell him to a bigger team, Berahino suddenly appears a changed young man.

Firstly, we had a pre-match declaration that not only is he happy at the Hawthorns but also he has a great relationship with Albion supremo Jeremy Peace.

Then, 24 hours later, Albion’s prodigal son rammed home the message by turning on the style in this crazy victory over Crystal Palace.

Berahino, 22, created one and scored one during a first-half blitz that left Alan Pardew’s south Londoners 3-0 down – and all but dead and buried.
