Two goals from John Arne Riise meant he won the man of the match poll for the game at West Bromwich Albion.
The Norwegian opened up the scoring in the first half, it was his pass that led to Florent Sinama-Pongolle?s strike for goal number two. Riise added his second goal to make it 4-0 and then his cross come shot enabled Luis García to wrap things up with the fifth goal.
Riise could have easily ended up with the match ball but for a brilliant save by Russell Hoult who turned his pile driver over the bar.
