The Baggies moved 11 points clear of the bottom three with a thrilling 3-2 win over Crystal Palace at The Hawthorns.

Craig Gardner opened the scoring for West Brom after Salomon Rondon’s shot was parried by Wayne Hennessey.

Craig Dawson then headed home Gardner’s free-kick before Saido Berahino made it three inside 31 minutes with a fine volleyed finish from Stephane Sessegnon’s perfect ball.

The match was certainly a game of two halves and Palace hit back when Connor Wickham made the most of a Jonas Olsson error.

The visitors had two penalty appeals turned down before Wickham smashed in his second to make for a nervy end, but Albion held on for a second consecutive victory.

Here are five things we found from the enthralling match.
