To kick off this quiz on West Bromwich Albion's 2019/20 season, how many points did the Baggies end the 2019/20 Championship campaign with?

Johnstone only has one year left on his current contract, which would allow him to leave as a free next summer, so the Baggies may be hoping they can earn promotion this season and convince the England international to commit his future to the club in the top flight.

The West Brom shot-stopper managed to rack up an impressive 6.74 WhoScored rating in a relegated side as well as having to face the most shots and make the most saves out of any ‘keeper in the Premier League last season.
