Lots of West Brom fans have been left raging as some early team news emerged ahead of their game away at Fulham in the EFL Championship on Saturday.
As per The Express & Star and WBA journalist Joseph Masi, following on from Valerien Ismael’s latest pre-game press conference, it is ‘likely’ that Jake Livermore will start the match against Marco Silva’s team, even though the manager was ‘delighted’ with both Robert Snodgrass and Jayson Molumby after their performances against Bristol City.
Will West Brom be promoted?
Molumby won eight of his duels in that game, the joint-most out of any Albion player, and also successfully completed all of his dribble attempts, while Snodgrass made two key passes and had 68 touches of the ball in total, the most out of any player on the pitch (SofaScore).
Thus, it would be very harsh to drop either of them, especially for a player in Livermore who has recorded no goals and just one assist in 13 appearances in the league so far this season (Transfermarkt).
West Brom fans on Livermore news
These Baggies raged as the team news was shared on Twitter:
“As always got to bring captain Jake back in for his “leadership”, How you can drop either one of Molumby or Snodgrass after last weekend is beyond me”
“Sorry but what does Livermore bring to this team what Snodgrass and Molumby don’t other than giving away fouls and treating a football like it’s hot potato”
“Livermore starts I’m Val out”
“Can’t we just bin Livermore off I’m tired of this guy donning the famous stripes”
“That’s an awful call if Livermore starts”
