West Bromwich Albion fans are enraged by the news that the ban of Matheus Pereira has been upheld by the Premier League.
Pereira was sent off during the Baggies’ 5-1 defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend. After around 30 minutes, with the score at 1-1 after Conor Gallagher had cancelled out Darnell Furlong’s own-goal, the 24-year-old received his marching orders after allegedly kicking out at Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt.
As a result, the Baggies decided to appeal the decision. Now, though, the Premier League have upheld the decision, meaning that Pereira will miss the matches against Newcastle, Manchester City and Aston Villa. Having scored one and created two of his side’s eight goals in the Premier League this term, the Brazilian will no doubt be missed.
Will West Brom beat Newcastle?
This news has attracted plenty of attention from the West Brom fans, as you can imagine, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.

What a farce, beginning to wonder why we need to complete the season, just ask VAR and a match referee to fill in the result each week so that they can justify their pay packet.
