Sam Johnstone, Conor Townsend and Callum Robinson all struggled in West Brom’s disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Swansea City.
The Baggies were desperately looking for a victory at The Hawthorns on Monday night as they aimed to keep their increasingly slim Championship promotion hopes alive. Instead, Steve Bruce’s side endured yet another bad day at the office, losing 2-0 to the Swans amid much dissatisfaction from the home supporters.
According to Sofascore, three West Brom players stood out as the poorest performers on the night, among those to have played more than 45 minutes.
Sam Johnstone – 6.4
Johnstone could leave The Hawthorns for a Premier League club at the end of the season but this was not the most impressive showing from him.
The Englishman should have done better for Joel Piroe’s goal in the second half and his distribution was erratic, with nine of his long balls misplaced overall. Johnstone also only completed 72% of his passes on the night and lost the ball nine times.
Will Johnstone leave West Brom?
Conor Townsend – 6.4
Townsend was another man who was below-par for the Baggies on a poor night for the left-back.
He lost possession 10 times and failed to make a single tackle or interception, as the Swans got the better of West Brom’s back-line. Also, both of Townsend’s attempted crosses were inaccurate, while he was beaten in three duels.
Callum Robinson – 6.4
Robinson was another underwhelming for Bruce’s side, failing to bring an attacking spark throughout the match.
The 27-year-old didn’t manage a shot on target during the game and he also only won four out of 12 duels against the Swans. Robinson was wasteful in possession, too, losing the ball 14 times.
All in all, a difficult night for him and West Brom as a whole.
