There’s no question that tomorrow’s game against Leeds United will be one of West Brom’s most important this season, and there has been good news heading into the highly-anticipated clash.
We have been a shadow of our former selves since we lost Diangana. I was not looking forward to the #lufc game, but now he will feature, I feel optimistic that we will be back to our best and get a result. Thoughts? #wba #wbafc

Slaven Bilic has confirmed via The Birmingham Mail that Grady Diangana will be fit for Wednesday’s encounter against Leeds after the West Ham loanee missed the majority of the festive period due to injury, a spell that has seen West Brom lose after 14-games unbeaten to the hands of Middlesbrough.
Do West Brom have the best squad in the Championship?
Diangana has been influential for the Baggies this season since joining in the summer, and the return of the attacker for West Brom’s must-win game against Leeds was met with euphoria on social media from supporters who were desperate to see the England youth international make his comeback from injury.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about Diangana’s return to full-fitness…
It’s like gaining two players..
Periera purrs, thrives, expresses far better with Diangana in the team…
Chemistry like this, is so hard to replace..
It’s been there, with these two from day 1..
Great news and perfect timing…

You would hope that Diangana & Gibbs would be miles better than what we had on the left yesterday. Equally Ajayi looks better alongside Bartley. But our real problem at the moment is we are not controlling games. That has as much to do with confidence as personnel. #COYB #WBA

Not just diangana missing, Gibbs and Bartley too put those three back in and sawyers too well get a result against Leeds no problem.

A win will see West Brom top the Championship table after a topsy-turvy race for first-place between both sides.
