James Morrison was simply outstanding for West Brom against Chelsea

Taking a closer look at the West Bromwich Albion midfielder

West Bromwich Albion took on Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday and Tony Pulis’s side very nearly continued the Blues’ woeful start to the new campaign.

Alas, for Baggies fans it was not to be, with their side losing 3-2 after a hugely entertaining – and eventful – match, but one player in particular stood out for the hosts.

Midfielder James Morrison scored both West Brom’s goals and he also missed a penalty in a game the Scottish international is never likely to forget.

Morrison missed from the spot but would go on to score twice, while Pedro, Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta netted for the visitors.

The match also saw Chelsea skipper John Terry sent off for a foul on West Brom’s club-record signing Salomon Rondon but despite Morrison scoring his second with half an hour still to play, Jose Mourinho’s side held on for their first win of the season.

Morrison had a quite remarkable passing accuracy of 100 per cent for West Brom on Sunday – a brilliant achievement at any time but even more so when you consider he was up against the reigning Premier League champions.

As well as his two goals – which ensured he ended the match with a 100 per cent shooting accuracy – Morrison also played two key passes to set up chances for his teammates.

On top of that the West Brom star won three interceptions, four duels and a fantastic 11 ball recoveries.

In short, he was great and did not deserve to be on the losing side.
