We asked these long-time Albion fans for their thoughts on the 1-0 win at Brentford.

What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance?

Colin Beales: Brentford seemed the stronger side in the first half, with them failing to convert a number of good chances. The second half we did improved with good possession and limited their chances. This paved the way for Trossard’s crucial goal late on.

James Heasman: I felt it was a very workmanlike display. We were well organised and comfortable throughout. Brentford were quite poor and I was surprised they didn’t test us more. A word for our supporters who were outstanding.

Alan Brownings: Brentford started better and enjoyed the better chances in the first half and we were struggling to hang on in the five minutes before half-time. In the second half we seemed to grow and have a little more of the ball. As time went on you started to feel we might sneak it.

Who was your pick of the Albion players?

Colin Beales: I would probably go with goalscorer Leandro Trossard who as well as getting the goal was involved throughout with some clever play including what should have been an assist to Danny Welbeck.

James Heasman: Sanchez demonstrated excellent handling, whilst Dunk, Duffy and Cucurella all played well. Trossard and Maupay also got through a lot of work, but Yves Bissouma was outstanding and a class above everyone else.

Alan Brownings: A hard one to call but I think I’m going to say Sanchez - a couple of key saves and particularly the one just before half-time that kept us in it and allowed the opportunity at the end.

Will this be Trossard’s best season yet in the Premier League?

Colin Beales: Hard to say, he has definitely got the potential, but has previously lacked consistency through the season. Let’s hope he can work on this and will lighten the pressure on the strikers.

James Heasman: I hope so. To date I feel he has been very inconsistent, and whilst showing glimpses of brilliance has often failed to deliver. He was outstanding versus Man City last season. Hopefully he can reproduce that on a regular basis.

Alan Brownings: He’s taken a good goal but definitely needs to be on the scoresheet more often. If we continue to beat the Burnleys, Watfords and Brentfords, though, that will amount to significant progress and keep the wolves at bay.
