Goal of the day: Ayoze Pérez (Newcastle) vs West Brom | inside World Soccer

A fine flicked finish from Ayoze Pérez set Newcastle United on course for a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Alan Pardew's men broke the deadlock right on the stroke of half-time with a superb creative finish from Ayoze.

A neat passing move worked the ball out wide to Daryl Janmaat, who was bursting into a typically-advanced position on the right flank.

The Dutch full-back then sent a low delivery into feet of Perez who, rather than take a touch, instead produced an audacious back-heel flick into the bottom corner.

Captain Fabricio Coloccini headed home Newcastle's second on 62 minutes and there proved to be no way back for West Brom.

"It was a very disciplined, strong performance which was highlighted by an outstanding goal from Ayoze Pérez," Pardew told BBC Sport.

"You need special moments like that in the Premier League. That type of goal, you usually take the pace off the cross and guide it in but he actually added pace to it."
