West Brom fans drool over Jake Livermore after Bristol win

West Brom moved nine points clear of the playoffs to bolster their title claims following a stunning 3-0 victory at fellow promotion hopefuls Bristol City earlier this afternoon.

The Baggies eased to all three points even despite going down to ten men with Romaine Sawyers receiving his marching orders in the second half as they recorded 17 shots in comparison to the home side’s seven, per BBC’s match report.

Callum Robinson, on loan from Sheffield United, opened the scoring before Hal Robson-Kanu doubled their advantage less than five minutes later before the Welshman sealed a brace and the win for Slaven Bilic’s side.

Fans have been waxing lyrical on social media ever since the full-time whistle with plenty of praise coming in for captain Jake Livermore.

Here’s what has been said…

The range of superlatives used to describe the midfielder was neverending – “gladiator,” “beast,” and “different gravy” were all used whilst one supporter went as far as claiming that Livermore played “like a man possessed.”

Per SofaScore, the 30-year-old recorded two key passes, ten tackles and had four attempts at goal.

It has caused some members of the Baggies faithful to tip him up for Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euro 2020 Championship later this summer.

There were even comparisons made to an array of midfielders, past and present, as one fan believed Livermore plays a similar role to Jordan Henderson for the European champions and runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Another added that he put in an “absolute Makelele,” referencing the former Chelsea powerhouse, Claude.

In addition, a further supporter likened him to Mick Channon – potentially one for the older generation.
