Things are beginning to go sour between Tony Pulis and West Bromwich Albion fans. So, it seems a good time to remind both of happier days, here are five of Pulis’ best results as West Brom manager.
Tony Pulis’ side pulled off a miraculous away win at Old Trafford to reach the golden 40-point mark. A fortunate Jonas Olsson goal gave the Baggies an unlikely lead, as they withstood a barrage of United pressure, to take all three points. Boaz Myhill’s late penalty save from Robin Van Persie epitomised a game where Albion rode their luck but came away with the desired result.
2) West Brom 3-0 Chelsea (Premier League – 18th May, 2015)
Pulis’ biggest-margin league victory for the Baggies came against newly-crowned Premier League Champions, Chelsea, at The Hawthorns. Cesc Fabregas saw red, as a goal from Chris Brunt and double from Saido Berahino, helped see off Jose Mourinho’s side. The result secured a 13th place, or higher, finish for the Baggies going into their final game away at Arsenal.
3) West Brom 4-0 West Ham (FA Cup Fifth-Round – 14th February, 2015)
Ex-West Brom midfielder, Morgan Amalfitano, was sent-off as the Albion stormed into the Sixth-Round of the FA Cup. Goals from James Morrison, Berahino and a brace from Ideye Brown, secured an impressive win over Sam Allardyce’s side. The victory marked a good start to Pulis’ West Brom reign – only losing one game in his first eight. However, Albion’s cup run would meet an ill-fated end in the next round, against rivals Aston Villa.
4) West Brom 2-1 Arsenal (Premier League – 21st November, 2015
Pulis’ side handed Arsenal their first league defeat in seven games. Albion fell behind to an Olivier Giroud goal but were in the lead by half-time, courtesy of James Morrison and an own-goal from Mikel Arteta. West Brom survived a late scare, as Santi Cazorla slipped at the wrong moment to send his penalty high into the Smethwick End. This upset saw West Brom move up to 12th place.
5) West Brom 1-0 Manchester United (Premier League – 6th March, 2016)
West Brom dealt a blow to Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United reign with a comfortable home win. Juan Mata’s sending-off in the first-half gifted control of the game to the Baggies, who took the lead through Salomon Rondon on 66 minutes. The win took West Brom up to 11th place, on 39 points, following a good run of results for Pulis’ team.
