West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has told Sky Sports that he is not happy with the performances of Saido Berahino’s so far this season.
"If you look at last season when I came in, from January 2 to the end of the season, the most influential player at this football club, for me personally, was Saido,” said Pulis.
"He got the goals that got us points and kept us in the league and this year we haven't had that. We've played for six months without Saido being anywhere near as good as what he was last year.
"That has had a massive effect on this football club, on the team and on everybody else and it's been disappointing in lots of ways.”
Berahino has been on the books of West Brom his entire professional career and is an important player for Pulis’s side.
So far this season, the youngster has found the net three times and has created three chances in 11 league matches for West Brom.
It is clear that Berahino needs to improve and rediscover himself, and West from fans will hope that he can kickstart his season this weekend.
The Baggies will take on Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Spurs will head into the game as favourites, but West Brom could get something if Berahino returns to form.
