West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Everton-owned defender Mason Holgate against Preston North End at the weekend.
The 22-year-old central defender started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Baggies won 4-1.
The youngster was deployed as a wing-back against Preston, and the defender played well in his role, as he made some important runs forward and also helped Dwight Gayle to one of his three goals.
According to WhoScored, against Preston on Saturday, the English youngster took three shots, had a pass accuracy of 63.9%, won three headers, made four tackles and one clearance, and played three key passes.
So far this season, Holgate has made 15 appearances in the Championship for West Brom since his loan move from Everton in January, scoring one goal and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
West Brom fans were impressed with the display produced by Holgate against Preston at the weekend and have praised the Everton-owned defender on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
Nope, don't think he loves Albion at all . He's just a nice man who realises that his role at a football club stretches to more than just running around for 90 minutes . He knows who the life blood of the club is, and appreciates their support, in fact he's a model pro.— neil (@vespaned) April 14, 2019
Don’t think Holgate has had a bad game since he arrived Paulos. He’s just quality full stop ain’t he— Carl Alexander (@CarlAlexander74) April 13, 2019
Thought Johansen was sublime today!! Showing exactly the quality he possesses! Hopefully it continues, Gayle and Holgate also steeling the show!! #WBA— Kieran Tuck (@_asdfghjkieran) April 13, 2019
Another for Gayle all thanks to Holgate's persistence to force an error after he'd lost the ball. That's the sort of commitment I love to see. #wba— mrianthomas (@mrianthomas) April 13, 2019
Johansen, Holgate, and Gayle all superb today. Preston are very poor but we have playes well today. Hopefully keep the momentum going till the end of the season now as it will be key heading into the playoffs #wba #COYB— Damon Killian (@htimsAJ) April 13, 2019
