West Brom fans react on Twitter to Saido Berahino performance

Saido Berahino

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino netted his 10th Premier League goal of the season against Swansea.

Saido Berahino scored his first goal since January 10 to help West Brom to a 2-0 home victory over Swansea.

He struck along with summer signing Brown Ideye to help the Baggies climb to 14th place in the Premier League table.

It was his 10th Premier League goals of the season, and 15 in all competitions, with the striker netting four in an FA Cup game against Gateshead last month.

The England under-21 international has found his future the subject of intense speculation this campaign, with The Independent reporting manager Tony Pulis' disappointment last week at Berahino's comments suggesting he saw his long-term future away from the club.

The striker's goal could not have been better timed in terms of relieving the pressure on himself, for as a young striker who aspires to higher accomplishments, backing it up first on the pitch is essential.

Most intriguing last night was his link-up with Ideye, who has himself found form after a difficult early spell at the club since his summer switch.

With the club rising up the table, there is reason for optimism at the club, and a focused Berahino can be a big part of it. He needs to forget the debate over his future for now, and exert his concentration on doing the best he can in the here and now.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to his display on Twitter...
