West Brom have enjoyed a tremendous start to the Championship season under Slaven Bilic, with the Baggies currently top of the division.
Their latest win, a 5-1 demolition of Swansea City, moved them two points clear of Leeds United, and 10 points above the play-off places.
The Baggies have only been beaten once all season – at the hands of title rivals Leeds United, and have won all of their last six league games.
West Brom still have five games left in December, but just one of those comes against top-half opposition in ninth-placed Brentford.
They were relegated from the Premier League in 2018 after eight years in the top flight, and Bilic looks set on making sure that their current exile doesn’t last much longer given their incredible start to the season.
The Croatian cuts a passionate figure in the technical area during a game, and was captured celebrating a goal against Swansea in typical fashion.
Baggies fans loved that video – here’s how some of them reacted:

I love seeing him and listening to his interviews, he’s a propper manager!
In Slaven we trust

Life time contract. Keys to the town. Knock down the Halfords and build the Slaven Stand. Move the club to Croatia!
WHATEVER. HE. WANTS.
