West Brom 4-0 Burnley

That is pretty much it from me. I told you to give this game a chance. It didn't disappoint. Well, West Brom didn't anyway. They were brilliant and can bask for the next five days.

On the flip side, Burnley will probably be feeling a bit like this poor sound man at the latest Minnesota Vikings NFL game...

'Salomon feels part of the group'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "We are pleased - it was going to be a tough game, Sean Dyche's players are honest and hard-working but we got goals at the right time.

"Every three points is enormous and back-to-back wins are very important. I'm pleased for the supporters as well.

"We will take every game as it comes - the most important thing is to make sure we are ready for Hull this weekend, that will be such a tough game

"I'm pleased pleased so Salomon, who has upped his game this season. He has settled in, he feels part of the group and he is such a smashing lad."

'Not good enough'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Burnley's Johann Berg Gudmundsson on Sky Sports: "This game was not good enough from us. We made mistakes and we got punished.

"Our play was too slow, we did not mix it up enough. The first half was just terrible.

"This is the Premier League - every game is really tough. You cannot lose concentration for one minute. We have to pick ourselves up and go from there."

'They were miles better'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "It was not good enough - the first half particularly. The game was done at half-time.

"We just got drunk on keeping the ball and playing in front of them and that is what they want you to do so they can counter attack. We got sucked into it - even though we had told the players what to expect.

"We have good points on the board but you have to build on what you are doing at home and take that on the road. I think some of that is a mentality thing - to play with more belief.

"We have had two below-par performances on TV - here and at Southampton, we were miles off it.

"I broke my leg here at 17 and I have never had a result here - one of the few grounds in the country where I have had nothing."

'Rondon is perfect for the Premier League'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

West Brom's Darren Fletcher on Sky Sports: "Salomon Rondon is the focal point and the start of all our attacks.

"There are times when he does not get that much service, especially away from home, but he is grafting and working for the team.

"I think he is a top-class striker and is improving every month - he is made for the Premier League, he is a perfect striker for it.

"It gives you a confidence booster to go ahead early - we wanted to be on the front foot from the go tonight and after that it was difficult for Burnley to get going.

"The manager keeps us on an even keel, he expects hard work, he prides himself on clean sheets but he is adding things going forward."

'Could be double figures'

This is one where Burnley could watch the game again on video but they have to forget about it and clear their minds.

If they perform like that against Manchester City next weekend it could be double figures.

West Brom striker Salomon Rondon: "We were perfect tonight. We played very well. 4-0 is very important at home and to get the points. 

"I am very happy I need to score goals. Tonight is special."

'West Brom were tremendous'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Burnley's away form must be a big concern. Their away form is poor - and there are huge question marks over that. 

West Brom were absolutely tremendous in a very one-sided game. It was a convincing win and they will get a lot of confidence from it. Some of their football was slick, neat and street-wise. Rondon was unplayable in the first half - and Michael Keane was bullied by him.

It was easy street for West Brom. It will probably be their easiest win of the season.

Emphatic. Ruthless. Almost cruel. West Brom's biggest win of the season sends them up to ninth in the table. Burnley remain without a win on the road and with just one goal in the plus column away from Turf Moor.

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

This is going to be the first time Burnley will have had over 50% possession in a Premier League game this season. And yet they've taken an absolute hammering. Go figure.

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Oh, Craig Gardner almost nabs his side a fifth goal as he rises to glance a header wide from a corner. The last touch was actually from Jonny Evans, desperately trying to steer the ball goalward.

This is not one for Burnley not to over-analyse because they have very few positives to take out of the game.

West Brom playing keep-ball now, toying with their broken opponent. A long period of possession puts Craig Gardner in position to shoot and it takes a hand from Tom Heaton to prevent him scoring.

The board says we'll have three more minutes added to the end of this game.

This thumping defeat tonight - I just wonder how much damage that will do to Sean Dyche's team.

They have Manchester City in their next game and that will obviously be tricky. 

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Amazingly (or not depending on how cruel you want to be), this is only the third time that a side managed by Tony Pulis has scored four goals in a Premier League game. He has managed 284 in the top-flight including tonight.

Before the corner, West Brom sent on Craig Gardner for James Morrison, prompting standing ovation number three from the home fans.

When the corner is swung in, it comes to nothing.

It is nearly five. Hal Robson-Kanu is just a few inches from getting on the end of Chris Brunt's swinging ball in to the corridor of uncertainty. Corner conceded by Burnley.

The last time I saw Burnley was on the second Saturday of this season when, as a paying punter in the away end at Turf Moor, I annoyingly saw them defend superbly for 90 minutes to beat Liverpool.

I simply cannot believe this is the same team and I suspect neither can Sean Dyche!

Albion are so on top that their main vocal section in the Smethwick End asked Tony Pulis to give them a wave... And he actually did!!!

As a Burnley player you wold not want to concede five or six - that could really damage their confidence.

Rondon has been fantastic - he has certainly been too much for the Burnley central defenders.

Another standing ovation as Salomon Rondon departs to be replaced by Hal Robson-Kanu.

Burnley make their third and final swap, sending on George Boyd for Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Have a go from 40 yards? Why not. Chris Brunt has a good go but his effort lacks power and bobbles harmlessly wide.

CLOSE!

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Close but no cigar. Johann Berg Gudmundsson's free-kick from 22 yards - following a diving foul by Jonny Evans - needs a touch from Ben Foster and a healthy bit of crossbar to prevent it giving Burnley a consolation. 

'Phillips has been very good'

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Burnley have been very good at getting points on the board at home but their away form is important.

Matt Phillips has been very, very good - he got his goal, got an assist. He has been a real handful and how he cannot get in the Scottish squad is beyond me and most of Scotland.

SUBSTITUTION

A standing ovation for Matt Phillips as he is replaced by James McClean. Fully deserved.

Ben Foster is finally drawn into action. He does his job well, too. Johann Berg Gudmundsson's shot swerves nastily through a group of players but the Baggies keeper reacts quickly to block and then gets lucky as the ball ricochets back into his grasp off Craig Dawson.

This is going to be a long 20 minutes for Burnley.

That is game over. Salomon Rondon deserved that for sheer workrate. It was a lovely touch from James Morrison for Allan Nyom who pulls it back for Salomon Rondon. He has his back to goal, swivels and I think it takes two deflections. Rondon deserved that.

West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Burnley do well to get in down the right but Claudio Yacob is there to block and concede a corner. For a second, from the delivery, the ball is there to be hit but the Baggies are first to react and Rondon hammers the ball clear.

GOAL - West Brom 4-0 Burnley

Salomon Rondon places his giant boot down on any lingering doubt over the result and grinds it into the dirt. He has deserved this. The big forward collects Nyom's low cross, turns and fires low into the net. The ball takes two slight deflections on its way, but it was always on target.

West Brom 3-0 Burnley

Craig Dawson finds space in the box to meet a free-kick in to the box but his steered header drifts wide of goal. Looks like we are going to see James McClean soon for the Baggies.

West Brom 3-0 Burnley

Twice Jonny Evans comes to West Brom's aid. His sliding tackle prevents one Burnley player having a pop and then the defender is well-placed to block Johann Berg Gudmundsson's cross-come-shot. 

Ben Foster's gloves remain notably dirt-free.

Salomon Rondon is a nightmare to mark. He is ludicrously strong with his back to goal. It must be like trying to out-muscle a fridge. 

Burnley are seeing plenty of the ball again and are lobbing the ball into the box but so far the Baggies are holding firm.

'Barnes has impressed'

Ashley Barnes has been a real handful since he came on. It was a sharp turn and cross. Claudio Yacob took up a good position for West Brom.

West Brom 3-0 Burnley

The corner is to the near post and headed away with ease by Matt Phillips. Total waste.
