West Brom continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 4-0 thrashing of recently relegated Sheffield United. Both teams have endured contrasting starts to the season with Sheffield United struggling to find their feet in the Championship. Of all the football scores today, this was the most surprising one. Ramsdale was not part of the squad for the game as he is in talks with Arsenal over the signing.
His replacement Michael Verrips had a tough time in the net with two glaring mistakes for the goals. He allowed a corner to slip through his hands while West Brom beat him in the air with continued regularity. West Brom moves to the top of the Championship and has flourished under the guidance of Valerian Ismael.
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “We were ruthless – that is what we missed against Luton but the break killed our legs. Tonight defensively was very strong. The principles we there, the running was there so we could always defend forward.” he added. “I think it’s a great feeling. We need the win to cement the belief in the heads of the players. Each win you can get, as quickly as possible, we will believe quicker. I think tonight is the right step for us to continue to work with the guys.”
Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “We lost the physical battle and all the set pieces and three times they score from this situation.” he added. ”We tried to move the ball but did not create enough chances. We paid a heavy price. They pushed us and we can talk about quality but if you give them this amount of the press you will lose this game.”
