Many West Bromwich Albion fans have lavished praise on Okay Yokuslu following his Man of the Match performance against Brighton on Saturday.
The Baggies picked up a vital three points against the Seagulls as Kyle Bartley scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory. It was not a clash without controversy – Brighton missed two penalties and had a perfectly valid goal ruled out following a mishap from Lee Mason and VAR.
However, Sam Allardyce and co will not lose too much sleep, and the boss will have been delighted with the performance of Yokuslu. He was a rock in the middle of the park as he won all five of his duels and made four tackles (SofaScore) – the Midlands outfit will need plenty more showings like that from the Turkey international if they are to stay in the Premier League.
Will West Brom stay up?
Yokuslu won West Brom’s Man of the Match vote, and the club shared the news on their official Twitter account. These supporters then took to the social media platform to share their delight with the 26-year-old, who one Baggies fan hailed as “pure class”.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Yokuslu below
“Amazing what having a recognised CDM can do for a side likely to be struggling at the wrong end of the table. Shame Super Slav got carried away with signing the flair players like Krovi and Diangana in the summer #wba”
“Gonna kill me when he won’t resign for the championship”
“The best to do it”
“Pure class this man is”
“We need to bust the bank to keep this guy. Been missing a player of this style for ages. Not only an enforcer, but quality and calmness on the ball. I just hope he enjoys his time here enough to give us a season in the Championship.”
“He’s been great no way he signs for us in the championship. Enjoy him while we can.”
