ALBION fans enjoyed the final game of what has been a record breaking season in the Premier League.

Graham Potter’s side went behind against West Ham but turned it around in the second half to come out 3-1 victors.

It capped off a season which means Albion now have the most points, highest finish, most wins, fewest defeats, most goals and fewest conceded out of all of their five Premier League seasons.

The Amex was in fine voice as a result on what was a beautiful Sunday for football.

West Ham, who were chasing a Europa League spot, needed to win against an Albion team with one defeat in their last seven.

Michail Antonio opened the scoring with a thunderous shot in to the top left hand corner in front of the North Stand. Albion would go into the break one down.

But Potter’s side, with the introduction of Maupay off the bench, came out with intent and levelled the scores just five minutes into the second half.

Albion carved out several chances in the second half and it would pay dividends with 10 minutes remaining.
