Mel: Berahino is not to blame

West Brom boss Pepe Mel refused to blame Saido Berahino for Cardiff's last-gasp equaliser in a 3-3 draw at The Hawthorns.

Mel's men looked home and dry after their blistering opening 10-minute spell with goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Graham Dorrans.

But Jordon Mutch gave Cardiff a glimmer of hope before Steven Caulker's header levelled things up.

Then, just moments after Thievy Bifouma looked certain to have grabbed a first home win for Mel, substitute Mats Moller Daehli grabbed a point for Cardiff after Berahino gave the ball away on the break for Albion.

"I think there was one team who deserved to win the match and that was West Brom," the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

"Saido wanted to go on and score the fourth goal which is a good thing, but he is a player who in the future will go on to learn, and we believe he will become a very good player.

"The changing room is quite bad but they will see tomorrow that we played a good game and the result should have been a better one for us.

"Simply by showing the players the video of the first half, and showing them how well they played, they will be able to see how capable they are of playing well."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
