A number of West Bromwich Albion fans took to Twitter following their Midlands derby win against
Birmingham City to share their praise for captain Jake Livermore.
“It’s a massive result for us.”

Slaven Bilic saw his side go behind twice in the game, however goals from Grady Diangana and a Charlie Austin brace from the substitutes bench were enough to give the Baggies all three points and put them top of the Championship table.
Indeed, the forward is the most likely to win the plaudits and get his name in the headlines, but it seems Livermore is a man that has been going under the radar for some time and fans clearly want it to be made clear just how good he is and how important he has become.
The midfielder had a solid game for WBA once again in the holding role, as data from WhoScored backs up. The 30-year-old provided an assist, made two key passes, had one tackle, one interception and made three clearances as he looked to boss the centre of the pitch.
The club posted a video of him speaking after the match, which led to many of The Hawthorns’ faithful singing from the hymn sheet, whilst others had noted just how passionate his reaction to Austin’s first goal – which subsequently levelled the tie at 2-2.
Here are just some of those reactions from fans…

Just watching the highlights and I love Livermore’s reaction when Austin scores his first goal! Just sinks to his knees in happiness, my captain #wba

He’s come on leaps and bounds this season! Easily my face player and at least he talks as a unity rather than thinking he stole the show!
