West Bromwich Albion fans have already had the frustrations of losing 1-0 at home to Stoke City this week, but now things get worse as Matheus Pereira is set to banned for three matches after a supposed elbow on Potters’ midfielder Joe Allen.

The Brazilian couldn’t help to turn the game in the favour of the Baggies, and his frustrations clearly got the better of him as he left an elbow on Allen during the defeat, something that he wasn’t booked for and has now been punished retrospectively.

Slaven Bilic’s side had until 6pm today to respond, and time will tell if they elect to do so. Yet with one of the three games he’d miss coming in the FA Cup, the Baggies could opt against appealing and instead of having their Brazilian star missing three league games he can miss just two and the trip to West Ham in the cup.

Is Matheus Pereira the best player in the Championship?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The fans clearly aren’t happy about the Pereira suspension, but time will tell what action they take.

  • 1st. He needs a rest
    2. The rest of our squad will have to stand up a stop leaving everything to Pereira and Grady.

    Pull your blinking fingers out gentlemen and ear your corn.

  • I think its fully deserved although j.allen made a meal of it, he’s been a bit feisty in a few games now, maybe he will calm down a bit now, plenty options to step forward and show what they can do now.
