A number of West Brom supporters have criticised Darnell Furlong’s performance in his side’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Stoke City.
The Baggies were back in Championship action on Friday evening, looking to continue the impressive form that has seen them to the top of the table.
It proved to be a disappointing night for West Brom, however, as Stoke ended up sealing a 1-0 home win, thanks to Nick Powell’s late strike.
Can West Brom cope without O'Shea?
It means Valerien Ismael’s side will be knocked off top spot if Bournemouth win at home to Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
One player who had a poor night was Furlong, who struggled in defence and received a five-out-of-10 rating from The Birmingham Mail, losing possession 24 times overall. He also scored a comical own goal that was ruled out.
West Brom fans fume at Furlong display
These West Brom fans took to Twitter to lay into the defender’s performance, on a hugely frustrating away day for the Baggies.
“We were always going to lose at some point. No positives to take out of that performance tonight, terrible from start to finish. Thought Furlong had one of his worst games for us. Fair play to Stoke, deserved the win. Roll on Blues (h)“
“Furlong been way off the pace tonight“
“Furlong poor tonight“
“Lucky that the ref saw it, shocking communication from Furlong and Johnstone“
“Dreadful free-kick routine, wasteful. Mowatt’s centre finds nobody and Furlong concedes a needless free-kick himself“
“Furlong not even paying attention then“
