West Brom loan star Callum Robinson offers three-word verdict on Matheus Pereira



West Bromwich Albion will be looking to return to winning ways in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, as they prepare to take on Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

The Baggies’ winning run came to an end at the weekend, after Nottingham Forest scored a stoppage-time equaliser through Matty Cash to salvage a late 2-2 draw at the Hawthorns.

It was a frustrating blow for Slaven Bilic’s side, who took the lead twice on the afternoon thanks to Callum Robinson and a Tobias Figueiredo own goal.

Robinson opened his account for the Baggies on Saturday, calmly slotting past Brice Samba to score his first goal for the club since arriving on loan from Sheffield United in January.

He was set up by Matheus Pereira, who dispossessed Samba Sow in a dangerous position before rolling a perfect pass into Robinson’s path.

What nationality is Diego Lugano?

That was to be Pereira’s 12th assist of the campaign, making him the most creative player in the Championship in terms of out-and-out assists.

The Brazilian has been nothing short of a revelation since arriving from Sporting Lisbon, and Robinson has took time to express his admiration for the silky playmaker.

Robinson recently uploaded a picture onto his Instagram story, captioned “What a player” with an image of the duo celebrating at the weekend.

The Verdict

Robinson has been impressive since joining West Brom on loan, and a player of his finishing abilities will thrive with Pereira in the same team as him.

It shows just how easy West Brom can create chances – Pereira’s tenacity saw him rob Sow of the ball before spraying a pass into Robinson who finished with ease.

Pereira is arguably one of the most exciting players we have ever seen ply their trade in the Championship, and West Brom are lucky to have him.
