Pulisic: A big test of our mentality

‘It was a tough first half for us, we can’t do that to ourselves. We made some simple mistakes that we wouldn’t usually make and obviously a red card changes the complexion of a game. But overall we made it really tough for ourselves.

‘You never want to go down to ten men in football, it’s never easy in that situation. You have to give West Brom credit though, they played really well today and were positive in their attacking actions.’

Our American forward felt that a number of ‘simple’ mistakes were to blame for the defeat but insists we cannot dwell on this game, with a huge Champions League clash with Porto coming quickly around the corner.
