Lewis Cox's West Brom player ratings vs Southampton as two get 8's
Lewis Cox gives his player ratings following the 2-1 defeat at Southampton.
Didn’t have too much to do. Unlucky to see a superb save fall to Smallbone on the rebound. Otherwise untroubled.
Elements of both Saints goals came from his side, but Furlong was decent going the other way. Threat in attack.
Continues his excellent form. Defended so well with blocks and tackles. So good on the ball and spraying passes around.
Second goal of the season and another dominant, composed performance. Defended well again.
Didn’t quite go his way in the first period as Albion struggled to get going. Better after break but caught at back for winner.
Bright and better again for the second game running. Looked on the front foot and moved the ball well.
Handed a start, possibly surprisingly, and didn’t quite happen for him. Neat in parts but not much influence. Off on 55.
Played well. One of his best performances of the season. Lively, useful with ball. Excellent cross for goal.
Started slowly and got caught with the ball but improved as contest went on. Remained a threat throughout.
Playing so well at the moment. He was excellent. So smart with the ball, defensively and in attack. Diligent in everything.
Something of a mixed bag. His overall play was excellent but a couple of chances came and went. Headed off bar for goal.
Alex Mowatt (Chalobah, 56) Was exceptional from the bench. Drove Albion forward with top passes. So smart. Could’ve started? 8 Semi Ajayi (Bartley, 81) Couldn’t get involved late on just after goal conceded n/a. Jayson Molumby (Yokuslu, 81) n/a. Tom Fellows (Wallace, 81) Tried some runs late on n/a. Jeremy Sarmiento (Phillips, 81) Couple of crosses. Shame he didn’t come on at 1-1 7. Subs not used: Griffiths, Pipa, Taylor, Pieters.
