West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter after the club’s full-backs put in a magnificent display in the draw against Fulham.

The Baggies snatched a point late on at Craven Cottage last weekend after Semi Ajayi cancelled out Anthony Knockaert’s opener. However, it’s the two full-backs who have caught the eye after a memorable performance from the pair.
Right-back Darnell Furlong has played four times for West Brom this season, whilst at just 18, Nathan Ferguson has missed just one game in the Championship, playing a variety of roles at the back in that time.
Against Fulham, Ferguson slotted in at left-back for Kieran Gibbs and both the teenager and Furlong received a 7/10 in a very impressive full-back display against the Whites (as told by Birmingham Mail).
Indeed, it seems both the Baggies youngsters have earned the love and support from the fans after another sublime showing which has now put West Brom on 13 points from seven games as they remain unbeaten.
Here’s what the fans had to say…
Hope Fergie has let Knockaert out of his pocket for training tomorrow

Both were incredible, but i have to point out Ferguson because he’s so young and filling in on the left side as a right footed player and he still is impressing everyone. Well done 👏👏
Glad it’s not me who has to pick which one of these two plays RB when Gibbs is back 😅

Amazing. We have gone from not having a decent right back in years(cant class Dawson as a RB) to now having 2 QUALITY players in that position. I’d be tempted to keep them both in the team, even when Gibbs is fit again.

Best two players on the pitch
