West Brom had been rather inconsistent since football returned after lockdown, but no one can deny that they deserved to be promoted.
The Baggies played good football, scored goals, and were entertaining to the eye. As stated on BBC Sport, Bilic’s side 77 goals in the league this season – as many as Leeds.
West Brom fans will be over the moon tonight, as the team have returned to the Premier League and are back among the big boys.
It will be interesting to see how the Baggies fare in the top flight of English football next season.
