West Brom 1-0 Southampton: Tony Pulis praises Saido Berahino

West Brom manager Tony Pulis says match-winner Saido Berahino could be "a top class player" but "needs direction" after the Baggies' 1-0 win over Southampton at the Hawthorns.

Berahino scored after just 71 seconds when he rifled in Maya Yoshida's headed clearance before Graziano Pelle squandered Southampton's best chance when he failed to tap in Ryan Bertrand's excellent low cross.

The Baggies have tasted defeat just once in eight league matches under Pulis (W3 D4), with Berahino bagging eight goals in his last six appearances at the Hawthorns in all competitions
