West Bromwich Albion drew 1-1 away to Middlesbrough in their opening Championship game of the new season and Jed Wallace was one of many players who impressed.

The 28-year-old was making his full competitive debut after joining from Millwall over the summer and didn’t disappoint. Wallace whipped in more crosses and created more chances than any West Brom player. No teammate had more shots on target than the wide-man either, so it was a good outing.

Wallace bagged a crucial assist in his first league game for Albion, latching onto a through ball from Jayson Molumby and cutting the ball back to John Swift to finish from close range. Steve Bruce will be delighted to see his two signings linking up on the pitch and will be pleased that Wallace vindicated the decision to start ahead of Grady Diangana.

Against Boro, the 28-year-old played for 90 minutes, had 41 touches, completed 61.1% of his passes, created three chances, had two shots which both hit the target, made two tackles, had one interception, whipped in eight crosses and was fouled twice.

Next up for West Brom is a home clash with Watford on Monday, August 8. Wallace should keep his place.
