West Brom are still awaiting their first Premier League win of the season after losing 2-0 to Fulham on Monday evening.
Slaven Bilic’s side have struggled since they gained promotion from the Championship and the need for that first win grows by the week.
It was the home side who started the game in lively fashion which ultimately resulted in Bobby Decordova-Reid opening the scoring just before the half-hour mark. Reid’s opener was then followed by a strike from Ola Aina four minutes later and, from thereon, the game proved an uphill battle for the Baggies.
The visitors did have chances, however, with Karlan Grant missing a couple of glaring opportunities.
The result leaves West Brom with just three points, coming from a trio of draws, and drops them to 18th in the Premier League table.
Looking back at the Craven Cottage defeat, we have rated each West Brom player on their performance.
5. Another performance from Johnstone which saw him pretty much helpless as the players in front of him made it far too easy for Fulham to score two goals in four minutes.
6. Furlong seems a little out of his depth in the Premier League thus far and he is currently playing in a back four in very poor form.
6. Much like right-back Furlong, Townsend is yet to really make an adjustment to life in the Premier League.
6. Ivanovic has bags of experience but his inclusion in the West Brom starting XI is yet to suggest as such. Playing alongside Semi Ajayi, the two are yet to really forge a partnership.
6.5. Arguably West Brom’s best defender and he has been for the past 12 months. Slaven Bilic must work with his back four and get the very best out of Ajayi’s teammates.
6. Livermore made four tackles during the game but he seems a little lost without Romaine Sawyers, with whom he played consistently well last term.
7. Gallagher was arguably West Brom’s best player against Fulham with nine tackles but his hard work is being negated due to the lacklustre performances of players around him.
6. Croatian midfielder Krovinovic offered very little in terms of protection for the back four or going forward.
5. A poor night for the Brazilian, who continuously lost the ball and was hauled off for a much more livelier Callum Robinson.
5. Much like Pereira, Diangana struggled to make an impact but at least he managed to stay on the pitch for the full game.
6. Missed a clear chance in the first half which could have changed things for the Baggies.
5. Must feel slightly aggrieved to be on the bench. Worked hard when he came on for Livermore.
6. Looked a threat when he came off the bench and will surely be hopeful of a starting place next time out.
5. Offered very little during his short time on the pitch.
