West Brom continue to struggle in the Premier League as they trail Newcastle United 1-0 at half-time, and Branislav Ivanovic has not been at his best.
As it stands, Slaven Bilic’s men are in the bottom three of the top flight, and have won just one game amongst the elite all campaign. Despite Newcastle being without a number of players due to several positive coronavirus tests, the Midlands outfit are still behind. They will need a far better second 45 minutes if they are to get anything from the game.
Should Ivanovic be taken off against Newcastle?
Ivanovic has struggled against the Magpies. It was his mistake that allowed Miguel Almiron to open the scoring at St. James’ Park, and his lack of pace is regularly a problem for West Brom defensively.
The club’s supporters have not been kind in their appraisal of the Serbia international, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Ivanovic has been poor all season. He’s been a liability.

Ivanovic should watch the last 2 games and ask himself why he doesn’t retire. Absolutely bang average football from him. And playing him costs us as attacking player!!! Get him out the team
