Kevin Phillips has suggested Grady Diangana could start for West Bromwich Albion against Brighton this weekend.
Diangana could start
Diangana has not played in the Premier League since January 2nd after struggling with a thigh injury (Transfermarkt). However, he was named on the bench in the last match versus Burnley.
“I would possibly look at bringing Diangana back in. Phillips has had a try and we haven’t got results, Snodgrass came in and results haven’t picked up with him either.
“Diangana has been missing and he’ll be chomping at the bit to start football matches and show everyone what he can do.
“He might just be that little spark they’ve been missing. It might be a chance to throw him in [against Brighton] and get an hour of game-time. You’ve then got someone experienced like Phillips on the bench to come on, if they’re winning, to give them that discipline.
“It might be a game for Diangana to return and show us what he can do.”
Needs to shine
Diangana played an important role for the Baggies last term, scoring eight and providing seven assists in the Championship as the Midlands outfit earned promotion to the Premier League. However, he has managed just one goal in 15 league games this term, and has failed to provide that spark his side are desperately in need of.
Will Diangana start vs Brighton?
West Brom now need points as quickly as possible, and there is no doubt Diangana possesses plenty of talent. If he is given the chance to shine against Brighton this weekend, it is an opportunity he must use.
