West Bromwich Albion’s unbeaten start to the Sky Bet Championship campaign came to an end on Tuesday night, with Leeds United defeating the Baggies by a goal to nil at Elland Road.

Slaven Bilic’s side moved to the top of the league table with an impressive 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday, and were looking to replicate that performance against a promotion rival in Leeds United on Tuesday.

But the Baggies weren’t at their best against Marcelo Bielsa’s side and were made to pay, when Gjanni Alioski scored the game’s only goal in the 38th minute.

Albion did have their chances to get back into the game, but Kiko Casilla denied Matheus Pereira’s volley to keep his side in the lead.

Similarly, Leeds also had their chances to put the game to bed, but an inspired performance Sam Johnstone in the Baggies’ goal kept the scores at 1-0 – the former Manchester United man pulled off an incredible double save to deny both Patrick Bamford and Helder Costa.

Johnstone was arguably West Brom’s standout performer on Tuesday night, and here, we take a look at Albion fans’ reactions to the 26-year-old’s display…
