West Bromwich Albion finally picked up their first win of the Premier League season on Saturday night against Sheffield United and Oli Burke.
In what was a huge match for the Baggies and the Blades, it was the former who picked up all three points at the Hawthorns, with on-loan Chelsea midfielder Connor Gallagher scoring the only goal of the match in a 1-0 victory. The win hauls Slaven Bilic and co out of the relegation zone, while Chris Wilder’s side are still rock bottom with just a single point to their name.
£4.95m-valued Burke (Transfermarkt) was in action for the Blades, and actually put in a decent performance, completing two of his attempted three dribbles and providing two key passes. However, his finishing was off, and he arguably played a role in Gallagher’s strike.
Would you take Oli Burke back?
Burke is not a popular figure in the Midlands following his previous spell at the club, and plenty of West Brom fans were delighted that he was on the losing side. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Was running rings round Ivanovic, so all looked pretty impressive. But yup, still as useful as a sunroof on a submarine. Would love to go back and count how many balls just bounced off him.

Swapping Callum Robinson for Oli Burke was possibly the best business the club have ever done
