West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke insists Saido Berahino's sudden emergence is no surprise to him.

Berahino has already scored against Arsenal and Manchester United this season and Clarke is pleased the 20-year-old has seized his first-team opportunity.

"It's no big surprise with Saido," he said.

"He trained with the first team in pre-season last year then went on loan in the Championship to get to some good experience at Peterborough but unfortunately he picked up a bad injury and he was out for seven months.

"But he's had another great pre-season with us and has forced his way into the first-team reckoning."
