A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Grady Diangana’s performance in their 4-1 win over Bristol City on Wednesday.
Slaven Bilic’s side are back on top of the Championship after an emphatic victory at the Hawthorns. And it was the West Ham loanee who helped get the win up and running with an outrageous piece of skill.
It was Diangana who actually won the ball back for the Baggies. The youngster then continued his run and seemed to be set for a shot after being played through.
However, perhaps sensing that the angle was a little too tight, Diangana produced a delicious back heel into the path of Kieran Gibbs. The left-back made the most of the chance to put Bilic’s men in front.
The 21-year-old has been an inspired signing for West Brom. He has scored four goals and provided five assists in the Championship. And it is clear that many of the club’s supporters feel that they are fortunate to have him in their ranks.
West Brom’s promotion hopes were dented significantly last season when Leicester City decided to recall Harvey Barnes in January. And some fans are desperately hoping that history does not repeat itself this time around.
Some have taken to playing down his contribution. But many cannot hide just how impressed they have been with the youngster since his arrival at the Hawthorns.
Here is what some of the supporters made of Diangana’s display…
Diangana is bang average and got lucky tonight, as he did against Luton, Blackburn, Stoke etc. There really is absolutely nothing to see here. On a positive, I can see why so many of you hold #SuperSlav in such high regard. He is the absolute dogs.
All the best ?? https://t.co/0I8RPuB1KA

Love you #WBA first love, last love, every love! Diangana, Pereira and Sawyers are just top notch. Feel i’m dreaming when HRK has 5 in 7, Livermore is playing like Pirlo (maybe getting carried away!), 1 loss by December and 7 points clear! ???

@WestHam that Diangana fella we have on loan from you ain’t much kop. You might be best leaving him at the Albion. Or maybe even moving him on to them at a reduced fee. Around £250k would be about right!! #wba #class #baller
