Grading West Brom’s summer signings: Rickie Lambert gets an E

Serge Gnabry Nextgen

West Bromwich Albion signed James McClean, James Chester, Rickie Lambert, Salomon Rondon, Jonny Evans, Anders Lindegaard and Serge Gnabry in the summer transfer window.

Serge Gnabry - N/A

It is too early to judge Arsenal-owned German winger Serge Gnabry, as he has played just 13 minutes in the Premier League for West Bromwich Albion.

Anders Lindegaard - N/A

Anders Lindegaard, who joined West Brom on a free transfer in the summer after leaving Manchester United, has yet to feature in the Premier League for the Baggies.

Jonny Evans - B-

Signed from United in the summer, Jonny Evans has established himself in Tony Pulis’s starting lineup.

The Northern Ireland international centre-back has not been exactly great, but there have been encouraging signs.

Evans will play an important role for West Brom in their attempt to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Salomon Rondon - B+

There is lot more to come from Salomon Rondon, but so far he has been a success in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old striker has fitted in well at West Brom and has acted as the focal point at the tip of the team’s attack.

While the Venezuela international has done well tactically and has created six chances in seven Premier League appearances, he has scored just one goal.

Rickie Lambert - E

Rickie Lambert was a failure at Liverpool, and there are not too many signs which suggest that he will be a success at The Hawthorns.

The England international striker has not scored in seven Premier League appearances for the Baggies, and there is a chance that he will get less and less playing time as the season progresses.

Lambert’s shot accuracy is just 20% - that shows just poor the former Southampton striker has been for West Brom.

James Chester - C

James Chester has featured in three Premier League games for West Brom this season - they have lost all three.

Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.

James McClean - D

James McClean is supposed to create chances for his teammates and help West Brom score goals.

However, the Republic of Ireland international winger has created just five chances in eight Premier League appearances.

While the former Sunderland winger has worked hard, he is struggling to do much creatively.
