West Brom boss Mowbray: Teixeira is Premiership class

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray says fit-again Filipe Teixeira has the talent to succeed in the Premiership.

"It's down to him now,'' Mowbray said. "He has got to shine bright enough to get back into the first team very, very quickly.

"It won't be through a lack of talent.

"What I see on the training ground in small-sided games on little pitches and in the drills that we do he is fine.

"But 90 minute games on a full-size pitch can take your breath away after being out for so long and I think he will find that out next week in the reserves."
