Roberto De Zerbi praised Jack Hinshelwood after his match-winning goal.

But he was also delighted about another key moment from the teenager as Albion beat Brentford 2-1.

Hinshelwood cleared off the line from Yoane Wissa just before heading home a Pascal Gross at other end.

His goal helped Albion end a run of three successive home draws and bounce back from an unfortunate defeat at Chelsea.

De Zerbi said:” If we concede a goal today in that situation, it means we’d have conceded two goals in two times they came in the other half of the pitch.

“We lost an incredible game in Stamford Bridge. We lost two points against Sheffield.

“We lost two points in another incredible way with Fulham.

“Sometimes we can be lucky as well.”

De Zerbi has given Hinshelwood a chance to shine and has been delighted with his response.

He added: “Jack played another great game. He deserves to play now because he played like an older player.

“Yesterday I said in the press conference that Jack is Pascal Gross’s son because he is very young but he plays like an older player.

“He has personality. He is very smart in the pitch.

“He can play full-back, midfielder, in every position.”
