Loads of West Brom fans have been reacting to their opening weekend win at Nottingham Forest, and Kyle Edwards has the Baggies faithful drooling over his performance.
Slaven Bilic got off to the absolute worst start possible on Saturday evening, as Matty Cash put Forest in front after just eight minutes.
It wasn’t long before two goalkeeper errors got the new gaffer’s side back in the game though, as Arijanet Muric allowed Edwards’ strike to squirm under his body before Matt Phillips’ cross looped over the Manchester City loanee.
Forgetting Muric’s nightmare though, Baggies fans are loving the display of Edwards, who was twisting and turning on the left-wing throughout the match.
The 21 year-old registered two shots, two successful dribbles and two key passes, per Whoscored, and it certainly looks like he is going to have a big season after Saturday’s showing.
Fans are loving his start to the campaign, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Two goalkeeping slip-ups have awarded the goals in this match, but fair play to Edwards, weaved in and out of the defenders superbly before finishing. ?⚪️

Really impressed with Edwards today. His partnership with Gibbs down the left was superb #wba

First half thoughts:
Edwards is an absolute baller
Hegazi is needed
Sawyers is what we have missed in midfield for years
Gibbs is still the best left back in the league
Zohore needs a strike partner
Other than the first 10 minutes, we have been all over them#wba
