7 Duels, Four Aerial Battles won: West Brom ace impresses on debut

West Brom - The Hawthorns

Sandro made his debut for West Brom against Swansea.

New West Brom signing Sandro produced an impressive display for the club on his full debut.

The Brazilian was handed a start against Swansea City and relished a return to the Premier League after leaving Championship side QPR.

He got happily stuck in, showing his combative nature, winning seven duels and four aerial battles.

His passing accuracy of 69 per cent is an area which he needs to improve on, but his defensive display in the 1-1 draw will give Baggies fans hope he can be a solid addition.

The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has plenty of Premier League experience and is a player who could leave rival clubs wishing they had taken a punt on him.

The two teams attempted a combined 35 shots at goal, with only 11 landing on target, seven from West Brom and four from Swansea.

Tony Pulis' side are into 13th place in the table, temporarily at least above Chelsea who play this evening, while the Swans edge further away from the relegation zone, into 16th position.
