West Bromwich Albion made the trip to Kenilworth Road on Saturday to face newly promoted Luton Town and we met up with a familiar face in the shape of former assistant gaffer Graeme Jones.

Despite the hosts opening the scoring 15 minutes in, head coach Slaven Bilic’s decision to bring West Ham United loanee Grady Diangana on as a half time substitute was inspired, as the youngster hit a six minute brace to give us the 2-1 advantage, and that was where the scoring ended.

Statistics website Whoscored certainly rated the 21-year-old well, giving him their star man award for Man of The Match with a whopping, almost perfect score of 9.02.

Completing the top five best performers in their system were Filip Krovinovic (7.4), Kieran Gibbs (7.33), Jake Livermore (7.30) and Kyle Bartley (7.17).

The only real criticism Bilic can have from the game is with a massive 24 chances overall on the day, we need to get more than three on target. But three points are three points and our new arrivals and youngsters are still adjusting, so things are positive.
