West Brom ended their four-match winless run with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Wednesday night.

Charlie Austin scored Albion’s first goal since February from the penalty spot in the first half before Matheus Pereira’s brace rounded off a big win for Slaven Bilic’s side.

While there could have been improvements to West Brom’s overall performance, all that mattered at Hillsborough was picking up three points.

One huge reason why Albion did that was by keeping a clean sheet with centre-back Ahmed Hegazi playing a key role.

Our panel of West Brom Super Fans unanimously voted the Egypt international as their man of the match versus the Owls.

Hegazi was certainly impressive against Sheffield Wednesday.

The ex-Fiorentina defender made two tackles versus the Owls, wasn’t dribbled past once, made seven clearances – more than any player on the pitch – and won five aerial duels, which wasn’t bettered by any West Brom player [WhoScored].

Hegazi has not featured too often for the Baggies this season due to the surgery he underwent last summer and the form of Kyle Bartley but in the last couple of weeks, and the weeks leading up to the lockdown, the Egyptian has been very impressive.

In fact, in the last three matches, he has possibly been West Brom’s best player.
