This is part of a regular series from our panel of West Brom Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around The Hawthorns.
West Brom threw away points against Aston Villa but our Super Fans were still delighted with Matheus Pereira despite the late disappointment.
The Brazilian equalised from the penalty spot in the first half, taking his season tally to nine goals and five assists.
That is some effort considering how much Albion have struggled this year, and it is little surprise Villa are keen to sign the attacking midfielder after watching him in the flesh [The Athletic].
Pereira has been plagued by inconsistency at times this campaign but there is no doubt he has been one of West Brom’s players over the past few weeks.
He remains our primary creative outlet and Villa struggled to deal with him on Sunday as he made three key passes and created one big chance [SofaScore].
Our Super Fans were thrilled with his contribution and many believe he was our man of the match in the 2-2 draw.
Here is what they had to say.

Pereira has undoubtedly proved his quality in the Premier League and now our attention must be on keeping him at The Hawthorns.
News of Villa’s interest is most unwelcome as it has the potential to unsettle the 24-year-old, who must be keen on staying in the top-flight.
If we are unable to keep him due to his personal ambition then it is important not to stand in his way.
Fortunately for us, he has hit form at the right time and his transfer value should be rising with each passing game.
He still has three years remaining on his contract which means we are in a strong negotiating position and hopefully that allows us to demand a big fee.
