As a West Ham player, Grady Diangana would have been as gutted as anyone to be on a losing side against Millwall as West Brom lost 2-1 to the Hammers’ biggest rivals at The Hawthorns in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night. Although it was a defeat for the Baggies, there were a lot of positives for them and Diangana’s debut was one of them. In the first half, the on-loan Hammer looked bright, full of flair and was the driving force behind several attacks for the home side. After nine minutes, it was Diangana’s shot that led to Charlie Austin scoring on his West Brom debut. Diangana was widely hailed by West Brom fans on Twitter and he did have a decent match. However he will need to perform a lot better if he wants to earn a regular starting spot in the league because Kyle Edwards, Matt Phillips and possibly Matheus Pereira are all going to be above him in Slaven Bilic’s pecking order. Edwards has stood out for the Baggies in the opening games of their season so Diangana has his work cut out.
