West Brom made it 2 pre-season wins from three as last seasons’ top scorer Saido Berahino marked his return from injury with a goal before Brown Ideye grabbed the winner with less than 10 minutes to go.
Berahino was making his first appearance since May having picked up a knee ligament problem while training with England under-21s and his return from injury could spark a flurry of transfer interest. The Baggies’ face a struggle to hold onto their prize asset with a number of potential suitors willing to splash the cash on the 21 year-old although Tottenham are believed to be leading the chase. To lose Berahino at this stage of the season would be a hammer blow for West Brom who look a little lightweight upfront. Victor Anichebe is an ongoing fitness concern while the indifferent form of Brown Ideye will force Tony Pulis to look for at least 1 possibly 2 replacements. Jul 18 - 5:43 AM

West Brom have been boosted by the news that Saido Berahino will travel with the squad on their tour of the US suggesting the striker is on schedule to recover from a knee ligament injury in time for the start of the new PL season.

Berahino picked up a knee problem while on international duty as England prepared for this summers’ under-21 Euro Championships. Fortunately scan results revealed the damage was only minor - Berahino did not require surgery – and despite missing the pre-season training camp in Austria last week the 21 year-old will join his team mates who face Orlando City, Charleston Battery and the Richmond Kickers. Victor Anichebe and Brown Ideye will be hoping to prove their worth on the tour while youngsters Tyler Roberts, Jonathan Leko, Adil Nabi and Tahvon Campbell look to make their impression on manager Tony Pulis.

Injury has forced Saido Berahino out of this summer’s Under-21 European Championships after the West Brom striker picked up a knee problem in training on Wednesday.

A scan confirmed Berahino had damaged his knee although the results - at this stage - have not been released and the player will return to the Hawthorns for further tests. Performance director Dr Mark Gillett is hopeful the injury is "not too serious." His absence is likely to mean Harry Kane and Danny Ings lead the Three Lions front line with former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe called up as his replacement. John Stones will also miss the opening game against Portugal following an accidental training ground collision with Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland which left the Everton defender suffering from concussion.

Chelsea were embarrassed by West Brom today as they lost 3-0.

West Brom came to play and it was quite obvious Chelsea were already in celebration mode today as they've already wrapped up the title. Cesc Fabregas got himself sent off in the first half for a stupid decision that you can read more about in the link below. Sadio Berahino scored twice and Chris Brunt added the last for West Brom as they finish off their season on a high note with a huge in in their second to last game. Chelsea will try to rebound from this and give their fans a good last match of the season as they bring the title to Stamford Bridge.

West Brom couldn't snag a late win at St. James' Park but Saido Berahino played well in a reserve role as he tried to make it happen.

Saido Berahino has had an interesting season between a fast start, legal issues and spotting playing time late in the season. He has been forced to embrace the role of instant offense off the bench recently with Tony Pulis fielding either Brown Ideye or Victor Anichebe as a lone forward in the starting line-up. Exactly what the impact of his uneven playing time will be on his desirability as a summer transfer target isn't clear. The other thing that isn't clear is exactly how interested Tony Pulis will be in keeping the England youth international.

Sadio Berahino has been withdrawn from the upcoming England under-21 internationals against the Czech Republic on Friday and Germany three days later because of injury.

Berahino has been in great form since Tony Pulis joined the club with the young striker flourishing under the stewardship of his new manager. Scoring 4 goals in a 5 game purple patch during February / March Berahino along with Brown Ideye have helped West Brom climb away from the relegation zone although their involvement has been hampered by respective foot and knee injuries. The pair have been managing problems with pain-killing injections due to the lack of an experienced replacement - however Victor Anichebe is now fit again - and Pulis is keen to see his attacking duo get some much-needed rest over the next 10 days in order to recuperate ahead of the season finale.

Saido Berahino and Brown Ideye have both been playing regularly despite carrying injuries, expect both to continue doing so in Week 29.

With Victor Anichebe not fit enough to participate and Tony Pulis lacking other striking options, Berahino and Ideye have been sucking it up and playing through the pain. It seems highly likely that they will do so again in Week 29. The pain hasn't seemed to impact their performance significantly as the Baggies have been playing well and both forwards have been contributing.

Saido Berahino's goal wasn't enough for West Brom as they went down to a last minute defeat at rivals Aston Villa.

Berahino's 18th goal of the season looked to have extended Aston Villa's run to 13 league games without victory after he equalised Gabriel Agbonlahor's first-half strike, but the Baggies couldn't hold on. Keeper Ben Foster fouled Matt Lowton in injury time and Christian Benteke converted the resulting penalty to leave Tony Pulis' team pointless.

Saido Berahino played and scored over the weekend after being questionable but is listed as questionable again for Albion's mid-week at rivals Aston Villa.

The Baggies have struggled for goals all season and the possible absence of Berahino will compound that should he, indeed, miss the match. It compounds what is a trouble spot for West Brom against Villa since Victor Anichebe is definitely out and Brown Ideye also faces a fitness test on his knee. Expect one, if not both, of Ideye or Berahino to stage a miraculous recovery but betting on one of them will probably be more than most fantasy managers want to bit off.

Saido Berahino's early goal was enough to secure a vital victory over Champions League hopefuls Southampton.

This was another big step towards Premier League survival for the Baggies as Saido Berahino's strike proved enough to beat Southampton. Berahino scored after just 71 seconds at The Hawthorns when he fired home from Maya Yoshida's clearance and the home side held on to take the three points. Graziano Pelle squandered Southampton's best chance when he failed to tap in Ryan Bertrand's excellent low cross. West Brom move up to 13th, eight points clear of the drop zone and it appears Tony Pulis has worked his magic once again. The Saints have now won just one of their last four league matches and remain in 5th, two points behind 4th placed Arsenal who have a game in hand.

Saido Berahino will be assessed ahead of West Brom's Week 27 match with Southampton at the Hawthorns.

Berahino, the Baggies' leading scorer, seems like a reasonable bet to play. The injury doesn't sound too serious and Tony Pulis will want his best players available to try to pick up at least a point from a Saints team in dire need of a rebound victory. If you need to make a bet on whether Berahino will play or not, I'd say he will. If you don't have to put yourself into that situation, you're probably better off looking elsewhere for a forward.
Feb 27 - 12:17 PM

West Brom Chairman Jeremy Peace has reiterated his stance that Saido Berahino is not for sale during the January window.

With Tony Pulis on hand to ensure that the Baggies stay up, it would seem counterproductive to sell the club's leading scorer in January, especially when the player has very little leverage. With a contract running through the 2016-17 season, the Baggies can certainly push the decision to sell until the summer when they are safe from relegation and Tony Pulis has more time to identify potential replacements.

Saido Berahino couldn't match the form from his previous two Premier League appearances vs Everton on Monday night.

Berahino looked sharp early on, but couldn't get anything going as Everton dominated for most of the game, holding nearly 70 percent of the possession. Berahino was pulled in the 69th minute and West Brom finished with just five total shots - zero on target. Berahino will look to get back on the scoresheet vs Tottenham (at home) on January 31.

Saido Berahino is available for the Monday night trip to Goodison Park despite a scheduled drunk driving hearing during the day on Monday.

The Baggies' leading scorer came under scrutiny for his drunk driving charge earlier in the season and a hearing related to that charge will be held on Monday. Berahino will have time to attend that hearing and still travel to Liverpool for the match against Roberto Martinez's struggling Everton side. Whether Tony Pulis decides to start Berahino given the circumstances is another question but the player will be eligible to play.

Saido Berahino scored the lone goal on Saturday to give West Brom a 1-0 win over Hull City at The Hawthorns.

After opening the season with seven goals in the first nine games, Berahino fell into a ten-game goalless drought. However, since January 1 the young forward has looked magnificent, notching has six goals in his last three matches (two PL goals). Amidst speculation that manager Tony Pulis could let him go for a good chunk of change, Berahino is once again proving to be the best thing going for WBA this season, making a sale more unlikely by the game. The 21-year-old England International is currently tied for fifth in the league with nine goals. West Brom travel to Everton next week while Hull hope to rebound on the road vs West Ham.
