The West Bromwich Albion loanee did not appear at his best as the Baggies battled to a draw at Pride Park.

A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Filip Krovinovic’s performance in the 1-1 draw away at Derby County in Saturday’s early Championship kickoff at Pride Park.

This summer, the Croatian midfielder linked up with The Hawthorns outfit from Portuguese giants Benfica on a season-long loan deal, Slaven Bilic’s first signing since his appointment to The Hawthorns dugout (BBC Sport).

Krovinovic – valued at £4.5million by Transfermarkt – thoroughly impressed in pre-season and played 90 minutes in each of West Brom’s first four Championship games, as well as coming off the bench in the Carabao Cup against Millwall (Transfermarkt).

However, the 23-year-old looked somewhat off the pace at Pride Park for much of the game, blazing an effort over from inside the area, similarly fluffing his lines from a free kick, although the penalty given against him was very contentious.

Here is what some West Brom fans said about Krovinovic on social media during and after the game – initially negative, more positive towards the end, but still with some reservations:

Up next for West Brom is next Saturday’s Championship meeting with Blackburn Rovers at The Hawthorns.
