West Brom fans react on Twitter to James Chester's performance in Everton loss

West Brom

West Bromwich Albion lost 3-2 to Everton on Monday night.

The Baggies held a two-goal lead at one stage of the game, before falling to defeat to Everton courtesy of an 84th minute Romelu Lukaku winner.

The performance was extremely unlike one put in by a Tony Pulis side, and losing the lead to drop all three points leaves the Baggies in 15th place, sitting on eight points from seven games.

The Midlands side started well, with Saido Berahino opening the scoring towards the end of the first-half, before Craig Dawson netted the second with a powerful header from a corner.

They never looked particularly troubled in that first-half either, but a tactical change by Pulis altered that in the second period.

James Chester came onto the field of play midway through the first-half for the injured Jonas Olsson, and struggled with the pace of the game in the centre-back position.

However, at half-time Pulis decided to push Chester to right-back, bringing Dawson into the central position, and this is when the former Hull City man really struggled.

It is clear that Chester is no way close to being a top level full-back, and whilst he made little impact at centre-half, the 26-year-old actively gifted Everton chances from right-back.

Following the ending of the game, West Brom fans took to Twitter to criticise both Pulis and Chester, claiming the manager should have kept him at centre-back, whilst believing Chester does not have the required ability for the Premier League.
