Should Tony Pulis roll the dice and throw Zachary Elbouzedi into the first-team picture?

West Brom

The teenage Irishman is a real talent for the future.

West Brom have recently turned around a fairly miserable start to the season with some positive results in the league.

After one point accrued from their opening three games they picked up good wins v Stoke and Aston Villa away – as well as a draw with Southampton.

2-0 up against Everton and everything seemed to be hunky-dory.

But they went on to lose that game 3-2 in dramatic fashion and are currently 15th in the table. It remains early days but thoughts of a potential scrap at the wrong end of the table will undoubtedly be doing the rounds for Baggies fans.

Tony Pulis has assembled a solid squad at West Brom, as you would expect. But there is something of a lack in spark at the team – a chasm of unpredictability.

Callum McManaman and James McLean have their moments, as does Saido Berahino, but it is all well-known to the Premier League now.

So should Pulis start considering the idea of bringing in a talented Irish teenager who has been impressing in the youth ranks for both club and country?

Zacahary Elbouzedi is a tricky attacking midfielder similar in playing style to somebody like Eden Hazard at Chelsea or even Jack Grealish at Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

An incredible dribbler of the ball he also has an eye for an incisive pass and at just 17-years-old a real star of the future.

It would go against the grain slightly for Pulis to throw him in at the deep end but his chance has to come soon. Hopefully West Brom fans will get a sneak peek at him at some point this season.
