  5. 'We lacked that final product'

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic: "It was a difficult game for us and we got what we expected. We had enough possession and passes but we lacked that final product, and that is something we need to work on.

    "To be beaten on the back post is difficult. It just was not our day. Generally we cope with set pieces well, but it was not meant to be."

  6. 'We are a big threat'

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    West Bromwich Albion

    West Brom forward Jay Rodriguez said: "It is a great feeling to win. The lads worked extremely hard. Bournemouth are a good side.

    "It is a fresh start and I love football, and to be given the opportunity to play is brilliant. I was dying to score. The main thing is to get the three points for the team.

    "We are very well drilled and you can see that we work on our set pieces. We are a big threat and I think that showed today.

    "We are a tight-knit squad and the lads made me feel welcome as soon as I came in. We want to win games and push up the table."
