West Brom cheekily wish Birmingham luck for their Midlands derby

West Brom - The Hawthorns

We're a big fan of West Brom's social media team, and they've certainly got Villa fans biting!

It's safe to say that West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa aren't exactly best mates, and the Villans have managed to win more West Midlands derbies than their rivals.

In fact, the Baggies had only one once heading into this weekend against their bitter rivals since their 2-1 win back in 2011 - when Jonas Olsson and Paul Scharner bagged the goals. 

But when two of our favourite managers were going face to face in the league, we couldn't wait to see what Tony Pulis and Tim Sherwood's sides had in store for us.

Sadly, it wasn't exactly the thrilling encounter full of goals we were hoping for, but there were a couple yellow cards to keep us entertained until Saido Berahino added a few extra quid to his price-tag by slotting home six minutes before half-time.

With West Brom picking up the three points, their social media team took the time to have a cheeky pop at Villa by tweeting their League Cup opponents and fellow Midlands rivals Birmingham City and wishing them luck! 

And the Blues responded pretty sharpish, which left most Villa fans a little bit angry and sent them into a bit of a rage on Twitter... 

Blimey, we're looking forward to seeing Villa take on Birmingham on Tuesday and witnessing what happens on Twitter between the trio of clubs
