Rio Ferdinand has kept himself entertained on the journey back from West Brom by Twittering.

Anderson wanted to pass a message along to the supporters via Rio: “Nice one and Happy New Year to you all” thumbs up for the result!

Rio also reflected on the game and the penalty he gave away, which fortunately was put wide by Odemwingie.

“3 points. Nice way to start New Year! Ugly win but 3 points are on the board! Disappointed to give away a penalty but we drove on from there.”
