West Brom's Miller: I was right to leave Man City

Ahead of West Brom's Premiership kickoff at Arsenal, Ishmael Miller feels his move from Manchester City last season has been justified.

He said: "My decision to leave Manchester City last summer has paid off because I have got straight back into the Premiership at the first attempt.

"I am a lot different as a player and a person now to how I was 12 months ago and hopefully I can show that."

Miller is keen to emulate the likes of Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor, and said: "I like the way that he plays.

"He is a great player with great strengths. There are a lot of players in the Premier League that you can take tips off and hopefully I will be able to become one of those top strikers."

With last season's top scorer Kevin Phillips having left Albion, the pressure is on Miller and his fellow strikers to fill that large gap.

Miller admitted: "Kev is a great player and his departure puts more pressure on the rest of the strikers to score.

"It is a difficult task so we have to pull together and get the job done."
