"I thought we dominated the game," Hangeland told fulhamfc.com. "Obviously when they had a man sent off it made it easier for us, but I thought we were good value for the three points.
"We knew we had Hugo [Rodallega] and Dimitar [Berbatov] in attack and we wanted to try and dominate the game and make life hard for West Brom, as we always should against any team at home.
"There have been a lot of changes and there are a lot of new faces but we managed to perform really well as team and play some nice football against West Brom. We're really happy with how things went.
"In the two home games we've been brilliant and we've got to try and do that away from home now. I think we've proved to everyone that we can play really good football and do well so we'll try and carry that on next weekend against Wigan."
