ALAN Pardew reflected on what might have been following Albion’s 3-0 defeat by Chelsea.
The Baggies had a host of goalscoring opportunities at Stamford Bridge but failed to convert a number of chances.
“We came here to put them under pressure because we knew they were wounded,” said Pardew.
“You need to hurt them - we had the chance to put the dagger in really.
“Jay’s missed a big chance there, and if he’d had another touch I think he scores.
“And then at 1-0 we had a chance to change the dynamic of the game.
“Once you go 2-0 down at a top-six club it’s difficult.
“I felt for my defenders because they’ve worked really hard and done a lot of good work tonight.”
