Many West Bromwich Albion fans gushed over the performance of defender Semi Ajayi after his side’s hard-fought 3-2 victory over arch-rivals Wolves.
Newly-appointed manager Sam Allardyce got his first victory for the Baggies in the game that matters most to the Hawthorns’ faithful.
Matheus Pereira scored twice from the spot and Ajayi got the equaliser with a stunning looping header seven minutes into the second half.
Per Sofascore, the 27-year-old won eight aerial duels, made two tackles and two interceptions and was key to his side’s victory at Molineux.
Was Semi Ajayi West Brom's best player vs Wolves?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were full of praise for Ajayi and rushed to social media to congratulate him on his showing in the Black Country Derby.
