West Brom's Pulis plays down Berahino and Hutton's face-off in Villa defeat

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis indicated that he doesn't think there was much in Saido Berahino's clash with Alan Hutton on Tuesday night.

Aston Villa defender Hutton infuriated Baggies goalscorer Berahino with a strong challenge late in Albion's 2-1 loss at Villa Park but Pulis was not prepared to comment "I haven't seen the Hutton challenge. There has been a lot of criticism thrown at referees recently but I'm not going to go there. I'll let other people decide what they thought about it," said Pulis whose side were beaten by a late Christian Benteke penalty.

"The most important thing was Villa were better than us in the first half. They were quicker, kept the ball better and we wanted half-time. The second half was a different game."
