Gayle on ‘that’ goal

1st September

DWIGHT Gayle admits his stunning opener in today’s victory over Stoke City is right up there with the best of his career.

The skilful striker provided a sublime turn and classy finish to put the Baggies ahead, before doubling the lead with a half-volley from Jake Livermore’s excellent forward ball.  

And Dwight says his first goal was inspired by a certain Andrés Iniesta. 

“Just from the way I took it, it’s probably up there with my best, it’s my favourite one I’d have to say.

“Me and my mate were talking about Iniesta’s goal a few weeks ago and saying how good it was. The touch was similar to what he did and he took on the goalkeeper so you might say it’s similar but I wouldn’t say it was as good.

“The second was a miss-hit,” he laughed.

“I was just trying to hit the target and luckily it’s gone in.

“The boys have been fantastic in helping me settle in and if I keep getting service like then I’ll be a happy man.”
