Graham Potter, Billy Reid and Bjorn Hamberg celebrate as the full-time whistle goes.

Graham Potter was full of praise for his 'fantastic' players after they produced a superb performance to beat champions Liverpool at Anfield.

Steven Alzate's second-half goal earned Albion their third win in the last four Premier League lifted them to 15th in the table as they recorded a fourth successive clean sheet in the top-flight for the first time.

A delighted Potter said, “It was a really good performance throughout the team and I am very proud of the players for the way they played against a top, top side. They were fantastic.

“I thought we were worthy of a goal, we attacked with intent and our pressing and organisation was exceptional. We will enjoy tonight because it's not often you win against the champions. The players were sensational but now we have to recover for a tough game on Saturday at Burnley.”

Potter: That was for the fans

Alzate scored his first Albion goal to seal their first win over Liverpool since 1984 and Potter was pleased with his contribution.

“Steven put in a good performance. The problem is you can only field 11 players so some of the players will have to be patient and Steven has had to wait for his chance.

“But we've got a really good group who are fighting together and we've been rewarded tonight and against Tottenham for good performances.

“We are playing in the toughest league in world football. We try to be ourselves, to play good football and win. If we keep believing in what we are doing then hopefully the results will go our way.”
