Alan Pardew is no longer West Bromwich Albion manager following discussions between himself and the club on Monday.

The former Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and West Ham manager joined the Baggies at the end of November but after only winning once in that time - a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in January - his time was called after nine defeats in a row.

He lost 13 and drew five of his 19 Premier League games in charge - the 3-2 away win over Liverpool providing the small high in a season of lows - with the 2-1 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday proving his final game in charge.

Alan Pardew's West Brom record

29 November 2017 - 2 April 2018 (Premier League only)

21 - games in charge of club, in all competitions - 18 in Premier League and three in FA Cup.

1 - league win, 2-0 against Brighton in January. Their only league win since August 19.

2 - Pardew's FA Cup wins with club exceed his tally in league after Albion saw off Exeter and Liverpool before losing to Southampton.

8 - points for West Brom in 18 league games under Pardew, compared to 12 from 14 before he took over.

4 - games taken for Albion to score first goal under Pardew, Gareth Barry's 77th-minute strike in December's loss to Manchester United.

4 - Salomon Rondon finishes as West Brom's leading goalscorer in league games under Pardew. He and Jay Rodriguez have six apiece in all competitions.

50% - half of the team's points this season, 10, came in their first eight games - and seven, or over a third, in their first three.

Assistant coach John Carver will also leave the club with first-team coach Darren Moore taking over on a temporary basis.

In a statement, West Brom said: “West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties.

“Assistant Head Coach John Carver will also be leaving. The Club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.

“First-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in charge of first team affairs until further notice.

“The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.”

West Brom are bottom of the Premier League and 10 points from safety with only six matches left of the season.
