Darren Fletcher delivered a captain's performance against West Ham

West Brom - The Hawthorns

The West Bromwich Albion skipper impressed against West Ham United on Sunday.

West Bromwich Albion came away from Upton Park with a point against West Ham United and plenty of reasons for Baggies boss Tony Pulis to be cheerful.

One of those was the performance of West Brom captain Darren Fletcher, who did his best to inspire his side to victory.

West Brom fell behind when Mauro Zarate opened the scoring for West Ham but Rickie Lambert’s deflected shot drew the visitors level and that was how it stayed.

West Brom are now 13th in the Premier League with 18 points from 14 matches and while there is still plenty of work to do in the months ahead, Pulis has the squad to ensure a top-half finish is secured with relative ease.

Fletcher will be key to their achievements and the Scotland international excelled against the Hammers, finishing the match with a 95 per cent passing accuracy and playing three key passes during the game – more than any of his teammates by some way.

The West Brom star also recovered the ball on five occasions, made four effective clearances and won five duels, while he was dispossessed only once all afternoon.

Next up for West Brom is a home match against Tottenham Hotspur and that will go a long way to proving just how far the Baggies have come under Pulis.
