West Brom have failed to secure their first home Premier League win of the season after letting a 2-0 win slip away and losing to Everton.

But Everton mounted an impressive and immediate comeback, managing three goals in half an hour to seal a 2-3 win.

West Brom go into half-time in their Premier League clash against Everton 1-0 up, thanks to a goal from striker Saido Berahino.

The Baggies capitalised on confusion in the Everton defence, allowing the England forward to fire home after 41 minutes.

Less than amonth ago, Berahino was threatening never to play for the club's chairman again, after several approaches for him by Tottenham Hotspur were rejected.

He has since returned to training and to the match-day squad for West Brom.

Tony Pulis believes West Brom's fans have forgiven 'naughty child' Saido Berahino for wanting to leave.

The boss insisted any rift between the striker and supporters has been healed following his return to the side.

Berahino threatened to never play for the club again following two rejected deadline-day bids from Tottenham, while he also had a transfer request blocked in the summer.

He scored the winner on his return to the starting line-up for the first time since asking to leave in Saturday's 1-0 win at Aston Villa.

The 22-year-old was rested in Wednesday's 3-0 Capital One Cup defeat at Norwich but is expected to start at The Hawthorns against Everton on Monday and Pulis insisted he has been welcomed back.

"They've been very good and very supportive and the great thing for me is the Saido situation," he said.

"I think Saido was concerned there might be a little turning of the tide but they were absolutely wonderful when he came on against Southampton and last Saturday against Villa.

"They truly are in love with their football club and they want their football club to do well and Saido is a big part of that now.

"They have embraced him and brought him back into the fold - that naughty child!"
