The Dutch midfielder has been playing in a slightly more advanced position to one that he occupied in his first two seasons with the club and got his first Amex goal in the last home game against Wolves when his first-half header helped Albion earn a 2-2 draw.
“The way we try to play is totally different to the last two years and personally I think I can show my qualities more,” said Propper. “A lot of our players like the way we play and we’re getting more confident with every game with this style.
“We like to have the ball and control the game from there, and not worry too much about the opponent. We have way more of the ball than we did before, and trying to get on the ball as much as possible is one of my qualities for sure.”

Propper’s goal against Wolves was only his second for Albion after scoring at Leicester City last season but when he played for former club PSV Eindhoven, he scored 22 goals in 89 appearances and he has also found the net for Holland, including two against Bulgaria in a World Cup qualifier in 2017.
“I haven’t scored a lot of goals in my three years so it was good to get one against Wolves, the other lads can leave me alone now because I have scored at home at last!
“I was used to scoring more goals with PSV but the Premier League is a different competition. You can’t really compare it with the Erdivisie, but I want to score more goals.
"In my first two seasons I played a lot in front of our defence, and it is harder to score from that position. But depending on who I am with, I have the opportunity to go forward a bit more – and I like that.”
