West Brom boss Alan Pardew offers no excuses after Leicester thumping

It was Albion's seventh straight defeat in all competitions and they remain bottom, eight points from the Premier League safety line, as the Foxes sit eighth on 40 points. Pardew admitted it has now reached the stage where he needs to approach the board to see if they wish to make a change.

"On the run we're on I still don't think it's an excuse so I made that clear to the players after".

The last time he scored before his goal against the Baggies was on December 26, 2016 after replacing Nolito in Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

But then an individual error cost West Brom yet again.

The Baggies took the lead after only eight minutes when Salomon Rondon gave Alan Pardew's strugglers the flawless start to the match, but Jamie Vardy levelled things up midway through the first half.

"I said to the players they have got to fight to the end and I'm criticising them for the last 20 minutes because they weren't fighting". My teams are better than that and I want my team here to be better than that.

"In terms of the team and the results and everything, it is what it is".

"My teams are better than that and I want my team here to be better than that". We lost out shape and we lost our spirit to a degree and that is something that I've only experienced once before here, in the Huddersfield game when our spirit and our confidence just hit the floor, and that is a worry.

"But the one thing I'm not going to do is lay down tools".

"I don't care what job you're in, if you're under pressure and you ain't going to fight, then don't bother turning up".

Mahrez poked home Leicester's second goal before Kelechi Iheanacho got the third with a fine header in the 76th minute.

Grzegorz Krychowiak reacted angrily when he was substituted at 1-1 and Pardew had little time for the on-loan Paris Saint-Germain midfielder's behaviour. "I'd like to think it can help us because that inner resolve to prove people wrong is a great driver;..."
