West Brom recorded back-to-back wins in emphatic style last night as they 4-0 at Cardiff City.
The Baggies remain unbeaten following an impressive start to the season under Valerien Ismael, and sit top of the table ahead of tonight’s fixtures.
After scoring a brace against QPR last time out, Karlan Grant opened the scoring as he found the bottom corner from distance.
Curtis Nelson netted a bizarre own-goal on the hour mark to make it 2-0, before Alex Mowatt’s exceptional long-range drive made it 3-0.
Matty Phillips converted Grady Diangana’s cross to make it 4-0 in the dying embers of the contest, with Albion picking up a superb win on the road.
On a night where Albion showcased plenty of attacking quality, Jake Livermore was the unsung hero as held everything together in midfield.
The midfielder produced a superb challenge to deny a quick Cardiff break with the score at 1-0, which could have changed the context of the game.
Here, we take a look at Albion fans’ reactions to Livermore’s performance…
How different could the game of gone last night if Livermore didn’t make that tackle early in the 2nd half at 1-0 👏🏻 #wba

Brilliant goals tonight but the defining moment for me was at 1-0 Livermore (I think it was Jake, hard to tell on one camera coverage sometimes) making a brilliant, goal saving interception!
Front to back we bossed that tonight! 😊#wba

Livermore somehow getting back to stop a certain goal was key tonight could of turned after that if they had scored great performance especially 2nd half UTA
