West Brom fans react on Twitter to James McClean's performance v Arsenal

The controversial 26-year-old came good for the Baggies against the Gunners on Saturday afternoon.

After 13 Premier League games, West Brom find themselves 12th in the Premier League table. They are eight points clear of the drop zone and only nine off the top four.

The Baggies sit in such a comfortable position thanks to a surprise 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday afternoon. And it was a victory Tony Pulis admits saw West Brom play far from their best. But there was no denying their work-rate.

Santi Cazorla applied the finishing touch by missing a late penalty that could have handed Arsenal a point - but the majority of the hard work was done by a West Brom side ready to give their all.

James McClean certainly did just that. The controversial 26-year-old divides opinion and his recent antics against Sunderland summed up what a fiery character he is. The West Brom faithful, though, appear to be big fans. They were big fans on Saturday at the very least, as McClean delivered a man-of-the-match display against the Gunners.

Several impressed: Boaz Myhill, James Morrison, Claudio Yacob and more. McClean, though, very much stood out. Here's how West Brom fans reacted on Twitter to his performance against Arsenal on Saturday:
