West Brom fans lavish praise on Holgate display vs Aston Villa

Loads of West Brom fans have been reacting to their win over Aston Villa, and they’re absolutely stunned by the performance of loan signing Mason Holgate.

West Brom were forced to go to Villa Park without star man Dwight Gayle due to his two-match ban for diving, but the Baggies were able to pick up an excellent result without the Newcastle loanee.

Hal Robson-Kanu gave Darren Moore’s side the lead just before half time, and Jay Rodriguez’s deflected strike doubled the score minutes later.

The second half was a tiresome and scrappy affair, but Moore’s side were more than good value for their 2-0 win, and fans are particularly impressed by Holgate.

The Everton loanee joined in January until the end of the season, and has now racked up two assists in six Championship appearances after setting up Robson-Kanu’s opener with a delightful cross.

At 22 years of age, his versatility, technical skill and athleticism are all extremely impressive, and he has certainly endeared himself to the Hawthorns faithful after Saturday’s dominant display down the right flank.
