Although they were the favourites to progress to the next round of the F.A Cup, West Bromwich Albion found themselves behind at half-time against Blackpool. Semi Ajayi in particular struggled in the first half.
The Nigeria international is usually a centre-back, but new manager Sam Allardyce decided to deploy him in the middle of the park as he looks for his first win since taking over the reigns at the Hawthorns. Unfortunately, Ajayi has failed to adapt to the new role, with his passing often being wayward.
In fact, he could arguably have been sent off early on in the first 45 minutes for a reckless challenge. If the Baggies are to progress, he must improve after the break.
Will West Brom progress to the 4th round?
During the match, the West Brom fans made it clear how disappointed they were with his performance. They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Ajayi below
“First 5 minutes and ajayi plays 2 awful passes that’s why he doesn’t play midfield as much”

“I’ve seen 15 minutes of this Ajayi in midfield experiment and I never want to see it again.”
“Stipid challenge that from Ajayi. Brainless”
