Roberto De Zerbi had no complaints about the yellow card which has booked him a touchline ban at Tottenham.

The Albion head coach was shown a third yellow of the season by referee Simon Hooper during the 4-1 Premier League win over Crystal Palace.

De Zerbi felt Palace debutant Daniel Munoz handled as he attempted to prevent an attack after just seven minutes and was booked for his reaction.

He aid: “The yellow card was right.

“I forgot that with another yellow card I can’t be on the bench at Tottenham but my players can play without their coach there.”

De Zerbi was absent from the technical area for the closing stages of last season's controversial 2-1 defeat at Tottenham after he and opposite number Cristian Stellini were shown red.
