Some West Bromwich Albion fans appeared to share a unanimous view on Twitter regarding Semi Ajayi after his latest performance against Charlton Athletic – that he needs a rest and Slaven Bilic might need to drop him.
The Baggies dropped more points once again on Saturday afternoon when they were held to a 2-2 draw with the Addicks at The Valley (BBC).
Fortunately for them, they remained at the top of the Championship after Leeds United were beaten by Sheffield Wednesday.
However, fans appear to be concerned with what they are seeing from their defence at the moment and it appears Ajayi was one of the men that seemed to draw some criticism from them on Twitter.
Many of the supporters suggested Bilic needed to drop the centre-back and replace him with the likes of Ahmed Hegazi, whilst a few others had stated that they felt he had played his worst game for The Hawthorns outfit since joining them.
Here are just some of their reactions to his latest performance…
On the flip side Bartley and Ajayi were quite poor and Johnstone does need to command his area more, although the equalising goal should have been dealt with, Bartley was nowhere their lad. #wba

I would probably give Ajayi a rest. I was really impressed with O’Shea when he came on the other week, the way he looks in possession & his passing is a massive positive for me #WBA

Think it might be time to give Ajayi a break and bring Hegazi in. Really like Semi but his positioning at crosses can be questioned.

You could see why we got a number of players at a snip. Ajayi probably his worst game for us on the back of a number of poor performances. Pereira whilst still a cut above isn’t having the impact he did and hasn’t since Swansea. Sawyers had moments but mostly a passenger #wba

Ajayi’s worst game in Albion shirt, Theres a player in Townsend but not there yet, Periera was frustrated so his decision making was poor. Should have won second half, carved them open at times but last pass was poor or shot when should have passed #wba

Think we moved the ball going forward much better today. If we can’t hold a lead, Brentford and Fulham will keep gaining on us. Might be time for Ajayi to have a break from it. Doesn’t seem to be at the level from when he first joined. We’re giving too much away defensively #WBA

Only one thing could cost us promotion and that’s the defence, ajayi great start of the season but is making mistake after mistake lately #wba

– Been very poor for over a month
– Kyle Bartley is the most overrated player in the league
– Conor Townsend belongs in League One
– Semi Ajayi forgets how to play the sport every 10th match
– Matt Phillips is either really good or really bad
– Play Jonathan Bond over Johnstone

Ajayi is having a nightmare. Hegazi half time. Come on you baggie boys
