West Brom: Corberan must now drop Jed Wallace

With Carlos Corberan at the helm, it finally seems like West Bromwich Albion are moving forward, with the team seemingly united under a common goal.

Almost everyone is pulling in the right direction, and despite the hardly outstanding nature of the results, the fact of the matter is they have won their last three without conceding.

Should Corberan drop Jed Wallace?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, this success must largely be attributed to the defence that is keeping the goals out. This also includes the goalscoring exploits of Kyle Bartley, who has scored in his last two Championship games.

Having scored just four times across these victories, there is one man who seems to have continued his poor form from Steve Bruce into the new regime: Jed Wallace.

Brought in over the summer on a free transfer, it was billed as a sensational piece of business that would surely improve the Baggies.

His former teammate Dave Edwards was particularly full of praise for the wide man, dubbing him a “likeable lad” who had “bags of ability and potential.

Bruce clearly thought highly of him, as despite scoring just three goals in 13 games, he featured in nearly every minute for the 61-year-old.

Even under the Spaniard, however, he has remained in the side but again offers little creativity to justify his inclusion.

In 20 Championship games now he has scored just three times from the right wing, and despite being signed on a free, is somehow managing to make it look like poor business.

To compare him with John Swift, who also arrived in the summer under similar circumstances, the 27-year-old has the same amount of goals and four assists from midfield.

His performances have seen him become the highest-rated player of anyone at West Brom this season on SofaScore.

First up in this West Brom transfer quiz, which club did the Baggies sign Alex Mowatt from?

Despite being likeable, Wallace is proving with each week why his position in the team is not merited whatsoever.

His most recent display further outlined this, as he achieved the worst rating on the pitch against Stoke City, having lost 100% of his physical duels and failed with 100% of his dribbles. Furthermore, he didn’t register a shot during the encounter.

The 28-year-old’s time must surely be up soon, with Saturday’s display another thing to add to the growing list of supporting reasons for him to be dropped.

Corberan cannot go on handing starts to this Bruce favourite, who has let his club down too many times now.
