West Bromwich Albion fought extremely hard against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, but Louis van Gaal’s side ultimately ran out 2-0 winners.
Second-half goals from Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata ensured United took all three points but they had to battle against a resolute Baggies back-line marshalled brilliantly by summer signing Jonny Evans.
The Northern Ireland international signed for West Brom from United during the summer and he has wasted little time settling in at his new club, featuring eight times to date and looking better with every performance.
Against United, Evans kept the likes of Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial at bay for much of the game and he can be proud of his efforts despite failing to hold out for the clean sheet.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what West Brom fans thought of Evans’ latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
