The Latest: Update on Diangana

Cox used Twitter to explain that Diangana was likely to miss the rest of the season because of ligament damage in his foot, adding that the club was awaiting a second opinion, but the surgery looked likely.

The Verdict: Corberan’s setback

Diangana has been one of West Brom’s most influential players this season, featuring in 19 of the 21 games that the coach Carlos Corberan has been in charge of.

The Congolese Striker has scored four goals and provided three assists in the current campaign. He’s averaged 1.3 shots and the same number of key passes per game (WhoScored) before his absence.

Diangana’s solidity in defending has been vital too. He’s in the 99th percentile for most blocks per 90 minutes compared to others in his position.

The 24-year-old has played in four different positions this season, making him one of the most valuable players in the building. Therefore, his immediate recuperation is vital for the team.
