West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to the performance of Karlan Grant during their game against Derby County in the Championship.
The Baggies had made an incredible start to life back in the Championship and came into the game unbeaten and top of the table against a Derby County side that had struggled so far, only winning one of their games to start the season.
Grant, who is valued at £7.2 million (as per Transfermarkt), went into the game without the greatest return when it came to goals, having just scored one goal all season, and the 23-year-old didn’t have the best of performances at the Hawthorns against the Rams, only managing to get off one shot on target and completing just 50% of his passes before being dragged off at half-time (stats from WhoScored).
It was no surprise then to see him come in for some rather fierce criticism for his performance from Baggies fans on social media:
“Is Grant on the pitch? Hugill at half time for me here. Need someone who will bully the defenders in the air.”
Will West Brom go up as champions?
Hopefully he’ll be able to pick up his form as the season goes on. He’s got a decent record in the Championship and West Brom are going to need him to recreate that if they are to stand a chance of getting promoted this season.
