Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi has received rave reviews for putting in a good shift to help his struggling team, West Brom secure a morale-boosting 1-1- draw against Manchester City Tuesday night at the Etihad.
In one of the ratings which was compiled by Birmingham Mail, Ajayi got nine out of 10 and was one of two West Brom players to get such a rating due to his superb display.
The Super Eagles star played a crucial part in West Brom’s equaliser as his hopeful shot, after shrugging off Nathan Ake, came off Ruben Dias and beat Ederson.
Ilkay Gundogan had opened the scoring for City in the 30th minute.
And Commenting on Ajayi’s performance Birmingham Mail wrote:” Was faring well before his part in the Albion goal. Right from the training ground, the goal itself, but defensively Ajayi was holding Jesus at bay throughout. A titanic effort in the second half.”
The fans also waxed lyrically about Ajayi for the vital away point recorded.
Below are some of the fans’ expression:

Great result @wba against one of the best sides in the world. A performance of character, spirit, resilience, resolve. Johnson, Ajayi and O’Shea were immense but the entire team deserve praise. We’ve had too-many hard-luck stories this season; the tide may be turning. #COYB
