West Brom had the chance to put some real daylight between themselves and the relegation zone on Saturday. They failed - and Newcastle United are now only five points behind the Baggies, out of the danger zone themselves.
The latest twist in the battle for Premier League survival came courtesy of a 1-0 Newcastle win over West Brom at St James' Park.
West Brom were dour and the Magpies just that little bit better, Aleksandar Mitrovic netting the winner on Tyneside.
But, as well as celebrating their own success on the day, Newcastle fans were also delighted by the performance of Saido Berahino.
Indeed, the much-talked about 22-year-old forward came on for West Brom but barely made an impact, as the home supporters commented on an almost invisible performance - and Berahino's visible lack of fitness.
Here's how a delighted set of Newcastle fans reacted on Twitter to Berahino's display against them:
Good win. In reality, west brom were awful and I swear Berahino wanted us to win. Didn't move lol. Need to improve. Sharp. #NUFC— Toon (@mduggan64) February 6, 2016
