West Brom travelled to Brighton on Monday evening looking to earn their first win of this Premier League season.

After Ahmed Hegazi left the club on Sunday night to join Saudi club Al-Ittihad, Slaven Bilic was forced into a change at the AMEX Stadium.

The Croatian brought in Semi Ajayi in defence and kept the same side that drew 0-0 with Burnley last week at the Hawthorns.

That meant that Sam Johnstone earned his 100th consecutive start for the Baggies, in this his third season with the club.

It has been a milestone filled with controversy, with there being many doubters behind his ability to perform at the highest level.

No one can argue that Johnstone has proved himself already this season though, with the keeper being superb against both Southampton and Burnley.

It started in the same way on the south coast, with Johnstone making one phenomenal save with the goal gaping for Neal Maupay midway through the first half.

Johnstone has stepped up when others around him have let him down at times this season, and that continued on Monday evening.

Many West Brom fans have reacted to the first-half display of their keeper, and couldn’t help but shower him in praise once again.

The majority were blown away, and one even claimed that it will be no time before England and Gareth Southgate come knocking.
