West Bromwich Albion supporters may have had to wave goodbye to Chris Willock over the January transfer window without the youngster having played a minute for their senior side, but now the Baggies have got a new sensation in their U23s to cheer on.
A Cheikh Diaby hat-trick helps us to a fourth Premier League Cup victory, which means we are Group C winners with a game still to play.

This time the man in question is the talented young forward Cheikh Diaby and in his most recent appearance for the Baggies’ U23 side, he bagged himself all three goals in a 3-0 win over Scunthorpe in the Premier League Cup.
The 19-year-old forward looks like the real deal, and if the young striker keeps on building on his recent performances then there’s no reason why he can’t be fast-tracked to the senior team, which is exactly what the fans want to see from the teenager superstar.
