West Bromwich Albion players took to Twitter on Monday night following their 0-0 draw at Everton.
The West Bromwich Albion players seemed satisfied with another point earned under Tony Pulis on Monday night after a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Everton.
The home side were awarded a penalty after Joleon Lescott handled in the area just before half-time but Kevin Mirallas, who seized spot-kick duties from regular taker Leighton Baines, put his effort wide of the post.
The Belgian international was withdrawn at the break for what manager Roberto Martinez deemed “fitness issues”, with West Brom going on to create a few chances in the second-half.
Everton were still the more dominant of the two teams over the 90 minutes, but the Baggies held on for a point at Goodison Park to leave them unbeaten in Pulis’ three games in charge.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the head coach said: "The lads worked very, very hard. What we have to do - it won't come overnight - we have to be better on the ball.
“We gave the ball away too cheaply in midfield, where we have good players.
"We need to get passes off to get us up the pitch. We need to commit if we're going to be solid. But it was a fantastic effort and we're pleased.”
The West Brom players were just as pleased with the result at the final whistle, with Ben Foster, Craig Gardner and substitute Brown Ideye all taking to Twitter to celebrate a point which sees them go 14th in the Premier League table, above West Midlands rivals Aston Villa on goal difference.
