A United Kingdom newspaper reported the quartet stole a taxi after a late-night outing to a fast food restaurant, with the players involved issuing an apology.

Jonny Evans was stripped of the captaincy for last weekend's FA Cup loss to Southampton as a result of an incident involving him, Gareth Barry, Boaz Myhill and Jake Livermore outside a fast food restaurant in Barcelona.

Alan Pardew feels West Brom will not be able to put their catastrophic trip to Barcelona behind them until they return to winning ways in the Premier League.

Huddersfield's first top-flight season in 45 years began strongly but inconsistency has plagued the West Yorkshire club. We haven't really got a defence for all that until we win, " said the West Brom boss.

Alan Pardew has told West Brom's official website that the Baggies can not afford to allow the gap between themselves and the teams directly above the bottom three in the Premier League to get any greater this weekend, but rejected the idea that their next game in a must-win. "This weekend he needs to prove to me, the fans, and the club that he's the right man to lead us".

Alan Pardew's West Brom side are now rooted to the bottom of England's top flight, seven points adrift of David Wagner's Huddersfield, and with the games running out quickly, are in drastic need of a win in order to have any chance of being involved in the scrap for an escape from next seasons Sky Bet Championship.

"We still have some big players to come back in Nacer Chadli and James Morrison". Daniel Sturridge will miss the game.

"But certainly this week we are much more focused and the desire levels have come together. And now it is about us sort of showing some kind of backing to them". We need to turn draws into the five or six wins we will need. "We know how important the game is". It's a massive game.

West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town, two sides involved in one of the closest ever scraps at the foot of the Premier League table, will face off on Saturday afternoon in a tie that could defy either teams seasons, for good or bad reasons. "We need to show pride on Saturday".
