Chris Brunt got stuck into his West Brom team-mates and had a furious bust up with under-fire boss Alan Pardew after losing at home to Huddersfield, it has been claimed.

And Brunt,33, who came off the bench in the second half stormed into the changing room after the game and made his feelings known, according to the Express and Star.

The Northern Irishman who has been at the Hawthorns over a decade then turned his frustration towards Pardew questioning his tactics.

It is claimed the midfielder disagreed with Pardew’s 4-4-2 system that failed to deal with the visitor’s five-man midfield.

The Terriers went 2-0 up inside an hour and it was Brunt who sparked the revival setting up Craig Dawson’s goal seven minutes after coming on for James McClean.

Brunt has set up four of the Baggies last six Premier League goals and the home fans let Pardew know how unhappy they were with his decision to leave him out.

The West Brom boo-boys got stuck into Gareth Barry who was sarcastically cheered when he was replaced by Jake Livermore after 69 minutes.

Pardew was asked about the reaction to his team selection, he said: “I think that’s just frustration and I don’t think we should make this an individual thing.

“This is team thing and regardless of my selection, the team didn’t win against Huddersfield at home, so I don’t think they’re going to be best pleased about any sort of decision.

“We have to accept that and move on, and that’s what we’ll do. We just have to go to the next week and hopefully get ourselves a win.”
