West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke was delighted with victory over Everton.

Albion overcame Everton 2-0 at the Hawthorns thanks to goals from Shane Long and Gareth McAuley as they took their points tally to seven from the opening three games.

Clarke was delighted with Albion's second-half performance and their flying start to his first managerial job.

"It was a good afternoon for us, It was a good game for us. Everton came here in a good moment but we arrived also in a good moment," he said.

"I thought the first half was a bit too cagey, too good teams feeling each other out. But in the second half, when the game opened out a wee bit, I thought we were good value for the win.

"It's been a good start. When you looked at the games we had (Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton) you thought it would be difficult.

"But seven points from nine is a good start and gives us something build on."
