It was a difficult return to the Premier League for West Bromwich Albion, as they lost 3-0 against Leicester City, following a header from Timothy Castagne and two Jamie Vardy penalties.
There were some players from the home side that still put in positive performances, while others struggled – Callum Robinson sits firmly in the latter category.
The £4.95m-rated ace looked isolated at times, with Slaven Bilic opting to deploy a 5-4-1 formation, and he didn’t do enough to get involved in the game. At times, it seemed as though his teammates were waiting for him to make runs in behind which didn’t come.
This level of ineffectiveness can be seen through his statistics from the game, as the 25-year-old didn’t get any shots off or contribute with any tackles or interceptions. He also failed to make any dribbles, while he was dispossessed twice.
In addition, he won one aerial duel and attempted just seven passes, six of which were completed, not managing to make any key passes.
There will be better games for Robinson, and West Brom, though this first taste of football back in the Premier League was a very forgettable one for the forward.
The Baggies have Everton and Chelsea coming up next in the league, so if he is to stay in the team, Robinson may need to find a way of making more of limited opportunities.
