Goals from Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck were enough to sink the Baggies and leave them one point above the relegation zone.

Mel hasn't won a Premier League game since replacing Steve Clarke at the club and admits the decision on his future lies elsewhere.

He said: "I don't know that (if I will be replaced), it doesn't depend on me.

"I'm very pleased with the performance of the players and very proud of the performance. They played in adverse conditions from the start.

"The next four games are very, very important for the club, starting with Swansea, and now we have to recuperate the team."

The Spaniard also thought that Robin van Persie should have received a second yellow card for a late challenge on Steven Reid.

He added: "It was a clear second yellow card.

"I didn't speak to the referee after. There was no point, but with the red card to Van Persie, the game would have changed and been completely different."

Games against Hull City, Cardiff and Norwich follow the trip to Wales to play Swansea.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
