Fulham piled the pressure onto West Brom heading into the final two matches of this year’s campaign, as Scott Parker’s side held the Baggies to a goalless draw on Tuesday evening.
Neither side were able to find a breakthrough at The Hawthorns, which mean that Brentford have the opportunity to close the gap on Slaven Bilic’s side in the second tier standings.
West Brom are currently sat second in the table, but are now just four points ahead of the Bees, who are set to take on Preston North End on Wednesday.

One flashpoint from the match between West Brom and Fulham, was Matheus Pereira’s reaction to Michael Hector, whilst the Baggies midfielder was injured during the game.
Hector wished Pereira well on Twitter, after footage of the incident emerged, but it remains to be seen as to how sincere his wishes were.
Hope he is ok 🤷🏽♂️😂 https://t.co/jQj5Jm6iYC

Plenty of Fulham supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the incident, and it’s safe to say that they didn’t have much sympathy with Pereira.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Is he OK? Has anybody heard anything. Really puts things in to perspective when people go through the pain barrier like this. Thoughts are with him.

Hahahahaha what am I seeing here, worse part for me is not the player rolling around, it’s the coach and managers reaction 🤦🏾♂️😂😂😂

When are we holding the minutes silence for Pereira? No way could he have survived that brutal assault.

Don’t know how players can live with themselves when they carry on like that. Quite shameful.
