Manchester United v West Brom

Manchester United v West Brom

At times people have mentioned them amongst the best sides to have played in the Premier League and whilst that might be an overstatement they have been brilliant and far better than any of the competition.

The Belgium worldwide joined Chelsea from his native club Anderlecht in 2011.

Former Albion boss Alan Pardew spoke in Rodriguez's favour at the hearing and the England global also received character references from Mauricio Pochettino, who he played under at Southampton, and Eddie Howe, who was his manager at Burnley.

A case of racial abuse against West Bromwich Albion striker Jay Rodriguez has been dismissed after an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing found that it could not be proven, the FA said in a statement on Friday. He snubbed an opportunity to join the west London club and made a switch to Old Trafford last summer.

Congratulations to Manchester City, deserved Premier League 2017/18 champions. He stressed that putting in more time on the training pitch helps him eliminate fear.

"Hard work eliminates fear". I think United will win. "The only score I want to know is bogey or birdie". If I fail, it's no problem.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. City were fighting relegation and no one gave them a chance against the might of Rovers.

"It's a painful one for me, because a few of those guys are my friends, so it's hard for me to see them in that position", he explained.

"But sometimes it's good to take a step back and then bounce and learn from it and try and improve on it".
