West Bromwich Albion fans were far from happy with the performance of Matt Phillips during their clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Baggies dropped yet more points to the Eagles in what was another blow to the Midlands outfit’s chances of survival, after Luka Milivojevic scored the opening goal of the game from the penalty spot. West Brom will now likely need at least three wins from their remaining nine matches to even have a chance of reaching safety (Sky Sports) – they are running out of opportunities to pick up points.
On the right side of the midfield, Phillips was particularly disappointing. He prevailed in just four of his ten duels (SofaScore) and was generally far too wasteful throughout the game. Sam Allardyce will have a decision to make in regards to keeping him in the side between now and the rest of the term.
Was Phillips the worst player on the pitch vs Palace?
The fans were livid at his showing, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Phillips below
“I have said for years, i don’t see what he offers at all.”
“How does he keep getting picked?”
“Awful from Phillips no quality when it counts.”
“Phillips’ lack of quality is painfully obvious these days. Needs to come off for Snodgrass.”
“Two guilt edged chances in two weeks for Phillips that he scuffed. Been a poor player for us for a long time. Work hard merchant”
“Sam there’s a Matt Phillips on the pitch that needs to come off”
