West Brom are enjoying life under Slaven Bilic this season as they are currently the only side in the Championship with an unbeaten record.
Seven games have passed with the Baggies occupying that final playoff spot in sixth, though it hasn’t been easy.
A couple of times they’ve needed late penalty heroics to salvage a point so it could have quite possibly been a different story at this very early stage of the season.

Six players have started every match this season with four playing every minute possible, per WhoScored – one of which is summer arrival Semi Ajayi, who made the switch to the Hawthorns from Rotherham for just £1.5m.
Many supporters have been quick to suggest just how much of a bargain that was by labelling it a ‘steal.’

One fan claimed he is miles better than former centre-back Craig Dawson, who departed for Watford in the summer while another believed he was the best defender in the league.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Miles better than Dawson

He’s been incredible! I still can’t figure out why his first goal was disallowed, i think it was Milwall in the cup ?

He is growing in stature with every game.
