The midfielder was 'absolutely outstanding' against the Hammers, according to supporters.
The Baggies have just sacked Alan Irvine - and more recently appointed Tony Pulis. So, if top-flight survival this season is to be ensured, West Brom need to do things right both on and off the pitch in the coming months.
Yesterday provided a reasonable starting point as Pulis watched from the stands. West Ham United led the Baggies 1-0 but a Saido Berahino equaliser earned a point for West Brom.
One particular performer, however, was due more credit than others - and was the subject of much praise from West Brom fans after the game on Twitter.
|Chances Created||Accurate Passes||Final-Third Passes||Touches||Minutes Played|
That performer was Stephane Sessegnon and, as Opta stats show, he deserved the plaudits.
Against West Ham, the midfielder created five chances and took 72 touches of the ball. Sessegnon also completed 45 passes, 16 of which came in the final third.
If West Brom are to shine under Pulis, then, the 30-year-old will likely be vital to their success. Sessegnon was instrumental at West Ham and his creativity was central to anything good the Baggies produced.
Here are the best fan reactions on Twitter to the midfielder's display - hailed by many as 'outstanding' at Upton Park!
Watching Sky highlights & looks like we played some decent stuff. Sessegnon had a gr8 game. Hope TP can get more consistency from him. #wba— Thomas Goffe (@DingleBasher87) January 1, 2015
Excellent performance and result. Could and should have got all three points. Sessegnon was absolutely outstanding. #wba— Jack Elvin (@jackelvin1) January 1, 2015
If Pulis can get Sessegnon performing on a regular basis that'd be brilliant because when he plays like he did today, he's a real asset #wba— Steven Butler (@StevieB_WBA) January 1, 2015
Overall a good point away from home. Sessègnon outstanding once again. Need to score when we're on top #WBA— Ashley Hill (@AshHillWBA) January 1, 2015
