With West Brom woefully out of form at the moment, few would have been expecting them to secure a positive result when Chelsea travelled to The Hawthorns, but the supporters would have also been hoping for a much better display than the one they had to sit through.
The Baggies are without a win since August and have slid towards the relegation zone in the Premier League at an alarming rate, and Antonio Conte's men ensured that that run continued as they ran out 4-0 winners.
None of the West Brom players appeared to emerge from the game with any credit, and some of the squad received a considerable amount of criticism on social media following the game - and one of the players who appeared to receive the most criticism was Grzegorz Krychowiak.
Krychowiak appeared to be one of the signings of the season when he arrived at The Hawthorns on loan in the summer, but he is still yet to be a part of winning West Brom side.
Given Chelsea's quality, Tony Pulis would have been hoping that Krychowiak's ability would come to the fore as he was one of the players who could have made a key difference, but that was not the case.
The Poland international was substituted after 45 minutes after a poor first-half display where, at times, he almost looked disinterested and made little impact.
While Krychowiak has been criticised, his form has also led to more criticism of Pulis as many supporters sense that the Baggies boss is the main reason behind the midfielder's form.
Here is the best of the reaction...
Yacob by far motm! Did more in 45 minutes that Krychowiak has all season. Baffles me how he and brunt can’t get into this team— Michael Davis (@MDavis1414) November 18, 2017
For me Krychowiak & Barry haven’t had a good game, we were better with Yacob and Livermore first few games— Sean Alldritt. (@seanalldritt) November 18, 2017
Krychowiak was not a 4. He got some good tackles in and showed strength. He's the easy scapegoat for Pulis. If anymore should of been hauled off it should of been Barry or Livermore. Sick of seeing Pulis destroy top class player's careers.— Shaun Armstrong (@Baggieboynico) November 18, 2017
Other thoughts on today's game... Rondon is absolute dog... just HOLD THE BALL and krychowiak is even worse! #wba— Daniel (@DanielMBrett) November 18, 2017
And those questioning Krychowiak, let's wait until we have a manager capable of handling players with his level of talent... #WBA— EighteenSeventyEight (@1878_WBA) November 18, 2017
He has been shocking from day one— nigel payne (@nbpwba) November 18, 2017
.shocking today as was Barry— Stevo Walton (@Stevotop) November 18, 2017
The bloke looks as dejected as the rest of us. No one can blame him!— Gary Stephens (@gazlar87) November 18, 2017
Pulis has turned one of the best box to box midfielder's in Europe into a demotivated wreck— Shaun Armstrong (@Baggieboynico) November 18, 2017
