Trossard: We deserved a point

Leandro Trossard felt that Albion were unlucky not to leave Anfield with a share of the spoils on Saturday, and believes their second-half performance in particular should give them plenty of encouragement going forward.

Lewis Dunk’s quickly-taken free kick set up a nervy finish on Merseyside, and the Belgian – who came on as a second-half substitute - believes that Albion can take plenty of belief from the contest heading into Thursday’s match with Arsenal.

He said, “We played well in the second half and created a number of opportunities. Then we played with 11 against 10, and we thought that we could have maybe taken a point, but it wasn’t to be and luck wasn’t on our side.

“Dunky [Lewis Dunk] had a really good opportunity in the first half, and you need to have that bit of luck against a side like Liverpool. It’s a shame, but we have to take the positives out of it, because we have another tough game against Arsenal.”

Trossard played an integral part in the build-up to Alisson’s sending off, with the Brazilian shot-stopper dismissed for deliberately handling his effort outside the box, and the winger was frustrated that Albion couldn’t make their one-man advantage count. He added: “I thought it would have been a goal if he didn’t use his hands, but he did and he got a red card. We managed to get to 2-1 from that situation, but it’s a shame that we couldn’t take advantage after that.”

The winger is now focussed on a busy December and Trossard hopes to have consigned his recent injury problems to the past ahead of a hectic festive schedule which sees Albion play seven games between now and 1st January, starting at the Emirates on Thursday.

He added, “Now I’m feeling fit, fresh and happy, and hopefully we can take some more points this week.”
