Adam Webster is pleased with the momentum Albion currently have.

Adam Webster is confident Albion can build on a good point against Liverpool.

Pascal Gross' injury-time penalty earned Albion a 1-1 draw against the champions at the Amex and although they conceded a goal to Diogo Jota, Webster and his fellow defenders were resilient once again. They have only conceded six goals in their last six games.

“This season it feels that in a lot of games we haven't conceded many shots and Maty Ryan has not had a lot to do. Liverpool are the champions for a reason but we limited them pretty well on Saturday.

Welbeck's Liverpool reaction

“We feel like we are building something. Each game throws up different challenges and it's not easy to pick up points in the Premier League but if we maintain the consistency of performances the results will come.”

Webster said there was no doubt in his mind that Albion should be awarded a second penalty after Andy Robertson kicked Danny Welbeck.

“It is a penalty, you get them given for less than that and we've had a few given against us so it was nice that it went our way for once. Pascal showed great character and nerve to stick it away.

“I felt that we created the better chances in the game. They had a couple of goals disallowed but in terms of clear chances we probably had the better of it and deserved something.”
