A number of West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to react to Rekeem Harper's performance during the Baggies' 3-0 win against Swansea City on Wednesday - and it appears that the supporters are very divided on what they made of the youngster's display.

West Brom's players had the chance to prove that the board's controversial decision to sack Darren Moore last week was correct. The 3-0 scoreline suggests that it was vindicated, but it does not tell the full story of the game - which included a comical penalty miss from the Swans' Bersant Celina.

 

But the most important thing for the Baggies is that they are back to winning ways and have kept their slim automatic-promotion hopes alive heading into the final nine games of the campaign.

One player who will be hoping to play a key role in the run-in is Harper, who played the full 90 minutes at the Hawthorns against Graham Potter's men.

The youngster divided opinion on social media. Some have lauded his performance in the emphatic win, with one supporter even predicting that he has seen enough to believe that Harper will be playing Champions League football in the future.

However, others have been incredibly critical of the 19-year-old and suggested that they are no longer bothered about whether he signs a new contract at the Hawthorns, with his current deal set to expire this summer (via Daily Mail).
