West Brom were easilly the better side at the Hawthorns, but failed to beat Crystal Palace in Alan Pardew’s first game as West Bromwich Albion boss.

Pardew’s men had the best chances of the game but were unable to finish and give the former Palace and Newcastle manager a win in his debut match against his former side.

Hal Robson Kanu and Jay Rodriguez both had chances that forced Julian Speroni into saves, who was called into the side after the warm up after an injury to ex-Wolves ‘keeper Wayne Hennessey.

Palace’s best chance fell to Christian Benteke, who waltzed past the Albion defence before having his shot saved by Ben Foster.

The result leaves Palace three points behind Albion in 18th. Meanwhile, West Brom remain just a point behind Bournemouth in seventeenth position.

Here’s how we rated West Brom’s players after the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace this afternoon at the Hawthorns.
