‘World class’, ‘Future captain’ – Many West Brom fans react as player shines against Sheffield United

West Brom rampantly secured a  4-0 victory over Sheffield United last night, in a contest between the newly-relegated Championship teams. 

The Baggies’ emphatic victory against The Blades has taken them to the second-tier summit, as the club attempt to bounce straight back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. 

Following a 2-2 draw on the opening day against Bournemouth and doing just enough to prevent a spirited fightback from Luton Town last Saturday, Valerien Ismael’s cruised to victory against a Sheffield United side who have continued last season’s slump into the new Championship campaign. 

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are yet to score a league goal this time out – the only club in the division to hold that unwanted statistic.

It was another scintillating attacking performance last night, but West Brom’s defence also impressed, preventing The Blades from getting back into the game.

22-year-old centre-back Dara O’Shea particularly shone against the Yorkshire club and has yet again put forward a strong case for starting XI inclusion each week.

The young defender won the physical battle against The Blades’ front-line, but he was also a composed figure in possession, starting attacks from deep. 

The Dublin-born man has progressed through the ranks with the Midlands club, and last year he was handed the opportunity of regular football. 

Here, we take a look at how some West Brom fans have reacted to Dara O’Shea’s performance yesterday evening…
