Baines was described as a 'special player' and âmanagerâs dreamâ by David Moyes in his post-match assessment.
But the 28-year-old said Everton's tenth league win of the season was all that mattered.
âThat [the win] is the most important thing,â Baines told evertontv. âThe second goal was important and we deserved it because in the first half we had pretty much all the play. We knew we needed the second goal and the unfortunate thing is that we gave up a bit of a soft one.
âWest Brom fought really hard like we knew they would. We knew they had to come out and offer a bit more in the second half of the game.
âIf thereâs any slight twinge of disappointment itâs that we didnât steady the ship and go and score another goal, but we have won the game and canât complain.â
