Alan Pardew to remain in charge of West Brom vs. Leicester

Captain Troy Deeney broke the deadlock after 79 minutes with a neat finish over the goalkeeper to heap more pressure on Baggies boss Alan Pardew following a fifth league defeat in a row.

Under-fire boss Pardew was happy with his side's overall display in their 1-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday, but admits that wins are now desperately needed, starting with the visit of Leicester City to The Hawthorns next weekend.

West Brom now sit eight points adrift of safety as a result, and reports suggested that the club were considering sacking Pardew after only four months at the helm.

Pardew's appointment as manager at the Hawthorns was expected to coincide with an upturn in form for West Brom, but that has so far failed to materialise.

"Our fans were brilliant today, and I think if they're honest, they've seen a committed performance today".

"If the consequences from this defeat are that I lose my job then that will be what it is", he said.

Swansea continue revival with win over West Ham
Goals by Andy King and former Hammer Andre Ayew compounded issues and showcased just how poor the West Ham performance was. The home side bristled with confidence and adventure as they took full advantage of their opponents' apparent surrender.

"I'm employed to be the manager of the football club, I try and put out a team that I think has got a chance of delivering the win".

"We should have definitely got a draw and maybe should have won", Pardew added. There's many times after a game I'll hold my hands up and say I didn't set ourselves up right. But unfortunately when the ball doesn't go in the back of the net it's frustrating. The league table looks daunting.

After scoring the victor against Everton in their previous home game, Deeney stole the headlines for Watford once again 60 seconds later when he raced on to a through ball from substitute Will Hughes and fired a superb finish past Foster into the roof of the net.

"We're in a hard position", he said.

"We have to take forward the positives of the commitment they showed to me".

"I don't know what will happen in the future but we are in a good moment and we will try to continue in this way".
