West Brom boss Sam Allardyce has hit out at the Premier League's fixture chiefs.
Allardyce said: "We asked if we could play it next Monday and they said no. Then what do we have to do? Play at 12 on Sunday.
"Thank you very much. That's really nice of you at the Premier League, helping us to get relegated or trying to get us relegated. That's how it is. You can ask for different dates or times but any one we asked for has been completely ignored."
Thursday's defeat left the Baggies staring at an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship.
