Pellegrino praises FA Cup spirit and gives injury update after win

  • Predicted Southampton XI vs West Brom

Following their return from Catalonia, which was initially sanctioned to unify the players and alleviate the stresses of the English top-flight, the Championship-heading outfit were then dumped out of the FA Cup after Southampton claimed a 2-1 victory at the Hawthorns Stadium on Saturday.

West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew has insisted that he is still the right man for the job despite growing speculation over his future at the club.

There was never much chance of that with Brighton's record signing Locadia scoring with his first shot on target after 15 minutes and Leicester City loanee Leonardo Ulloa, who is in his second spell with the Seagulls, rounding off the win after Connor Goldson netted his first goal in nearly two years.

Myhill was named on the bench and Livermore was absent.

Gareth McAuley was handed the armband instead, but Pardew has not yet decided whether he will keep it beyond this week.

Pardew said: "There was a problem in terms of selection because of the incident to go with my strongest team".

A source said: "Police have not accused them of taking the taxi with the intention of keeping it".


'I needed to make a statement over the events - I'm far from happy, ' Pardew said.

The pair were among four players interviewed by police in Barcelona on Thursday after a taxi was stolen from outside a fast-food restaurant in the Spanish city. That's all I'm going to comment on the rest of it.

Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal will face his old club again at the Liberty Stadium the week after next as they bid for a last-eight place for the first time since 1964.

"It's a score nobody wants", said Carvalhal, whose side are also battling for Premier League survival.

"I think we need to kind of make sure everything is geared to the 11 games we have left in the league and this little cup run, which could turn into a big cup run".

"I'm an experienced manager and I'm going to try and use my experience to get us out of this situation".

"They thought it was amusing but I felt sorry for him".
