Watford 1 – West Brom 0
Surely West Brom are going to be relegated from the Premier League?
It was another brutal weekend of the Baggies in the Premier League as they lost 1-0 at Watford.
West Brom are now more than two wins away from drawing level with their rivals in the drop zone. Save for a miracle, West Brom will be playing Championship football next year.
Troy Deeney scored the winner for Watford in the second half.
Richarlison’s Watford problems on show
What’s going on with Richarlison right now?
During the first half of the season, the Brazilian winger was one of the standout players in the Premier League.
However Richarlison has now gone 19 league games without scoring, and it feels clear that something’s not right with the South American starlet.
Javi Gracia subbed Richarlison out of the West Brom game less than ten minutes into the second half.
When Richarlison exited the pitch, he acted out by throwing his gloves on the floor in a public display of frustration.
‘Drop him vs Arsenal’
Some Watford fans didn’t appreciate how Richarlison acted out after his number was shown.
Next weekend the Hornets travel to Arsenal in the Premier League.
Already Watford fans are taking to social media to call for Richarlison to be dropped for the Arsenal game.
It’s also worth noting that Richarlison has been linked with a possible exit from Vicarage Road to either Arsenal or Tottenham this summer.
Those rumours surfaced after Marco Silva left the club earlier in the campaign.
I don’t necessarily mind Richarlison being grumpy at being substituted, but I think that boy needs a rest. He seems mentally and physically tired. #watfordfc

Richarlison comes across as a tit.

Was going to liken Richarlison's magic half season to Amr Zaki's which is grossly unfair because Zaki scored twice as many goals

I would also take Richarlison out for a few games. Take a bit of pressure off and give him a bit of rest. Looks tired and out of ideas, plenty of competition to allow us to do so too. #watfordfc

Was very pissed off with Richarlison today… just didn't look interested and his strop at being taken off early sums him up atm: looks like he'll be off in the summer. #WatfordFC

I'm absolutely convinced the real Richarlison is the world class player who started the season, but right now he needs somebody close to him to tell him that Javi Gracia has been right to sub him every time and three good months doesn't make a career. #watfordfc

Richarlison was not happy about being subbed off.
