A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the Baggies' Championship win over Hull and Jake Livermore's display earned widespread praise from the Hawthorns faithful.
Slaven Bilic took West Brom to Hull and Livermore, playing against his former club, put the Baggies in front with a superb effort from the edge of the area after a short-corner routine in the 28th minute.
Aside from the goal, the 29-year-old put in an overall great display, with great defensive nous and endless energy, always being in the right place at the right time - arguably the only negative point was the booking which will see him miss the next game.
Nonetheless, plenty of West Brom fans were blown by away by just how much Livermore has improved, and made their feelings known on social media:
They might be without him after the break, but my oh my that's a goal and a half. Phillips with another short corner, this time to Pereira. He rolls it to unmarked Livermore, 25 yards out. Rocket past Long. #wba— Joe Chapman (@ChapmanJ92) 9 November 2019
We talk of Grady, Pereira and Sawyers being quality players but my god, what a player Livermore has become under Bilic. Take a bow son #WBA— Baggies Bible (@TheBaggiesBible) 9 November 2019

Livermore must have really been working on his finishing. Last year he looked like he couldn’t hit a barn door whenever it fell to him, this year I’d always back him to put away. A reinvented player this year, just as important as Periera and Grady to us #WBA— Matthew Debney. (@Matthew_Debney) 9 November 2019
Superb performance Robson Kanu Livermore Bartley Townsend My picks they were phenomenal but Sawyers and Livermore Will be a miss next game but time for the likes of Krovinovic Brunt Harper to step up and most likely the first appearance of Willock on the bench #wba— Jon Simonian (@_Simonian) 9 November 2019
Jake Livermore outstanding again! Most consistent player so far this season cracking goal too! Top of the league! ⚽️— Josh Evitts (@Evitts7) 9 November 2019
West Brom are unbeaten in six matches, sit two points clear at the top of the Championship table, and host Sheffield Wednesday after the international break.
