West Brom have one more game before the international break begins and they will hope that they can end this period of games on top of the Sky Bet Championship table.
The Baggies have started this season in great form and fans are rightly pleased with Slaven Bilic with him clearly building up a rapport with supporters and players alike in no time at all.
Indeed, that is reflected by their lofty standing in the table right now and, evidently, his impact is being felt on the players with some that struggled last season really shining this time around.
Arguably, that can not be said more for anyone other than Kyle Bartley who has enjoyed a fine campaign up to this point.
He’s been a rock at the back after struggling to get into the side last year, and came in for praise on Twitter earlier today as the club reflected on his performance against Stoke on Monday night…
How good was Barts at the bet365 Stadium on Monday night btw⁉️

Possibly one of, if not the, most consistent performer this season and has gone from strength to strength since the Villa game. Bilic has had a huge impact on his game too #WBA

I flipping love this guy! Any player who fights back from last season where his performances were consistently below par for reasons partly out of his control imo, and give what hes gave us this season deserves all the credit in the world. My player of the season so far.

He's been like a new signing. I love Hegazi but there is no chance he deserved to be dropped unless he gets injured or starts to play really bad.

He was brilliant. Crazy we have hegazi on bench and can't get back in
