READ WEST BROM VERDICT
Austin has struggled to find his feet in a West Brom shirt this season and has only managed one goal thus far. Robson-Kanu is a more mobile and versatility option who could offer West Brom more in possession, however Austin offers an outlet for West Brom to ease pressure and hold the ball up, whilst bringing others into play.
Robson-Kanu is not as adept at keeping hold of the ball, which may be why Bilic continues to opt for the summer signing from Southampton to lead the line in the Championship.
