West Bromwich Albion could only muster a point from their game with Wigan Athletic last night to leave them now in second in the table on goal difference behind Leeds United.
The Baggies have been very good this season and both they and the Whites are well away in the league table at the moment with them 11 points clear of 3rd place.
Clearly, they are the two to beat but both will want to win the title and last night saw Leeds edge back in front on goal difference.
West Brom were not at their usual high levels of performance during the game and might feel as though a point was the best they could have got with Wigan showing plenty of threat themselves.
Slaven Bilic opted to give Filip Krovinovic – a summer signing – a crack for the game last night, too, but judging by many of the responses on Twitter, it perhaps wasn’t the most successful of experiments.
Let’s take a look at what was said about the attacking midfielder, with one fan insisting Super slav ‘got it wrong’ by playing some of the weaker options in the squad:

Sorry but Krovinovic ain't the one. Backwards sideways backwards. Nowhere near the level we need #WBA

Poor performance tonight. Krovinovic, Edwards etc far from good enough. Too many changes. Got a point we didn’t deserve. Move onto Saturday and improve #wba

Livermore poor tonight. Krovinovic, Townsend & Edwards not starters for me. Billic got it wrong tonight for me, get the job done at the start then take them off. #wba

Decent enough point though. I thought Edwards showed some really good flashes, think he'd be alright after a good run of games. Still unconvinced of Krovinovic, and Ferguson/Phillips very poor #wba onwards and upwards!
