West Brom 1 Huddersfield 2 - player ratings
Lewis Cox rates the West Brom players after their defeat against Huddersfield.
A wait for the elusive clean sheet goes on. Two goals at his near post to the left, slight touch on first. Struggled in air.
Goals came from opposite flank but Furlong unable to affect the game positively for his side. Pressure with new signing Pipa.
A very rare league start and Bartley was solid in moments and did the basics well enough before facial injury.
Continued his decent form with a comfortable performance for the most part. Needed to be a bit quicker with ball at times.
A first start for a few games and Townsend struggled at times. Corberan said he wasn’t used as an out ball. Goals came from his side.
Showed no lack of effort, but unable to control it more with Yokuslu. One especially good pass in Albion’s goal.
Did OK with some neat touches, but Albion need more from the Turk in midfield. Once again brought off as sub.
Need more 5
Continues to look off-colour and low on confidence. Things aren’t coming off for winger. Needs a moment. Captain hauled off.
Albion’s brighter performer. Described as “excellent” by Corberan and was purposeful for second game running. Great finish for goal.
Didn’t quite hit the recent heights, but no lack of effort. Some of his deliveries were dangerous, but needed final touch.
Highlight was a clever assist after fine run, but was unable to bring little else to the table. Needed more in final third.
Jeremy Sarmiento (for Wallace, 65) Bright and lively. Needs a start soon 7; Erik Pieters (for Bartley, 65) Showed purpose in some moments 6; Josh Maja (for Thomas-Asante, 73) Miss may haunt him 5; Nathaniel Chalobah (for Yokuslu, 73) Not good enough for goal 5; Grady Diangana (for Molumby 88) Nice to have him back. Not used: Griffiths, Taylor, Mowatt, Fellows.
