Albion’s wide men were praised after the win over Crystal Palace - especially Tariq Lamptey.

Match Of The Day pundit Micah Richards was also impressed by Joao Pedro.

Assessing the 4-1 win for the BBC highlights programme, Richards said: “They were outstanding.

“The link-up play down that left with Lamptey was outstanding.

“You always look at how full-backs or wing-backs get into these positions.

“The Pedro movement was key to what they wanted to do to leave Lamptey one on one.

“He (Lamptey) had a bad injury and where was he going to get fitted back into this side.

“And he played an absolute blinder.

“The intelligence from Pedro and the work rate from Lamptey worked so well.

“The two wing-backs were brilliant.”
