Allardyce has a year left on his deal at The Hawthorns, but the former Newcastle United manager said: “I’m not going to answer a question on whether I’m staying or going – it’ll just be a waste of time, because I won’t be saying whether I’m going or staying. It’s too early to consider or talk about. It’s about the disappointment. It’s about having a day or two off, and getting ready for Liverpool.

“The most important thing for me and the players is to give everything we’ve got to try and finish the season with pride in your own performance and your own professionalism.”
