West Brom skipper not wanting to put pressure on loanee Vela

Captain Chris Brunt is telling West Bromwich Albion that loanee Carlos Vela cannot on his own save the Baggies from the drop, it has to be a team effort. The Mexico international, 21, has arrived on loan at the Hawthorns for the rest of the season from Arsenal as Roberto Di Matteo's only January signing.

And Brunt told The Sun: "You cannot just expect Carlos to come in and keep us in the Premier League - that's down to every single one of us.

"We've seen from his time at Arsenal that he's a good finisher. "But it's important not to put too much expectation on him."
