West Brom had to settle for yet another draw in the Premier League against Brighton on Monday evening.
The Baggies drew 1-1 at the AMEX Stadium, although it was another game that Slaven Bilic thought his side could have won.
It was Karlan Grant who got his first goal for the club, cancelling out the Seagulls opener – a fortunate own-goal from Jake Livermore.
The captain spoke out after the game and actually singled out Grant for his performance in only his second outing for the club.
“I’m delighted for him (Karlan Grant) and he’s been brilliant since he came through the door,” he said.
“There was a lot going on behind-the-scenes whether he was coming or not. He’s here now and hopefully, that’s the first of many because he’s got a great attitude and he loves to score goals.”
It was vitally important that Grant got off the mark as quickly as possible, and he has done that with a great finish under pressure.
According to WhoScored, the 23-year-old only kept 1% of the Baggies total possession – the least on the entire pitch.
When playing in games like that, it is vital that your striker takes that one chance that may come along and Grant did exactly that – clinical.
