Arsenal reject Thomas enjoys the moment

Jerome Thomas was delighted after West Bromwich Albion's shock 3-2 win at former club Arsenal on Saturday. The left winger, who began his professional career with the Gunners, was instrumental in the famous win, netting Albion's third goal and creating Peter Odemwingie's opener.

The 27-year-old told the club's official website: "It's got to be one of the highlights of my career so far.

"I'll enjoy it for now and then concentrate on next Saturday's game and trying to get another three points.

"The lads are over the moon and ecstatic with the win. It's a great three points."

Jerome also praised the club's management team, led by Roberto Di Matteo, for getting their tactics spot on.

"They wanted us to press high and surprise Arsenal, " added Jerome.

"We won the ball a few times early in the game, broke on them and that gave them a bit of a fright.

"You've got to respect the players you're playing against.

"They're world class but you have to have that no-fear factor and go out and play your game, which is what we did.

"As a winger it's my job to create and score goals.

"It was nice to go back there and do well, especially after getting sent-off there last season."
