West Brom fans react on Twitter to Chris Brunt's performance v Liverpool

The 30-year-old was played out of position against the Reds.

Excellent and exceptional. Two words that stood out from West Brom fans when responding to Chris Brunt's display against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

The Baggies skipper was played out of position again by Tony Pulis, slotting in at left-back to provide another unfamiliar sight for those used to seeing him further forward down the years.

Brunt delivered again, however, being praised for his set-piece deliveries - hardly a surprise under Pulis's stewardship! - and all-round performance as West Brom held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw.

It certainly wasn't the kind of spectacle neutrals would have enjoyed but, even with the Reds' current struggles, holding Brendan Rodgers' men to a stalemate and keeping a clean sheet was a source of joy for Baggies fans.

Interestingly, there was a wide range of choices for West Brom's man of the match on Twitter. From that, we can tell Pulis's men performed well as a team - but also that it's anyone's guess without a match-winner or goalscorer to choose from.

It was Brunt that took a heavy portion of 'votes' and plenty of praise on social media, though, and the captain is a man out of position - but in form. Here's a selection of what West Brom supporters made of the 30-year-old's display v Liverpool!
