Blatant foul for winner - Allardyce
- From the section Football
New Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce says that West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino committed a clear foul on goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon in the build-up to his 54th-minute winner.
Berahino scored the only goal for the Baggies as Allardyce's first game in charge of struggling Sunderland ended in defeat.
This is the first time Allardyce has failed to win his first Premier League game as manager of a club (after Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn and West Ham).
