West Brom boss Clarke hails goalscorers after Man Utd shock

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke praised his goalscorers after victory at Manchester United.

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke praised his goalscorers after victory at Manchester United.

Goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino proved enough for the visitors despite Wayne Rooney netting for the fifth time in as many games.

"His (Amalfitano) English is OK," said Clarke. "He understands more than he lets on. When you tell him he's done well he always understands.

"He's a player that I'd seen play on a number of occasions, bright lively and has the flair to create going forward."

But 20-year-old Berahino was the hero, keeping his cool to beat David De Gea from Amalfitano's pass.

"He deserves his place in the team," said Clarke of the England Under-21 international.

"He's made an impact and as you've seen he's got a goal in him."
