Steven Alzate scored the only goal in the win at Anfield.

Steven Alzate has said that the squad are doing everything in their power to turn their possession into more goals.

Albion sit seventh in the expected goals league table, above the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City, while their expected goals against is fifth best in the Premier League.

With that in mind, the 22-year-old isn't quite sure how Albion find themselves just four points outside of the bottom three ahead of today's trip to West Brom.

Potter's West Brom Press Conference

“I'm not sure how we haven't scored more regularly. Our expected goals this season has been quite high as we've got into really good positions, but I can't exactly say why we haven't put them away.

“We do finishing work on the training ground and I am sure we can turn a corner and put it right.”

Alzate has got 2021 off to a good start with his first two goals for the club, including the winner at Anfield.

“That night the most important thing was the win, but I'm proud to have scored that goal.

“It doesn't matter how it went in, it went in and that's what matters. I was over the moon but I want to build on that and start scoring more goals.”

Steven Alzate was credited with his first goal for the club in the Emirates FA Cup, when Alexis Mac Allister's strike took a huge deflection off of the Colombia international.

Alzate says the mood is good in the group despite Monday’s loss to Crystal Palace, and he is hoping to get a run of games in the team.

“Whenever I play I do the most I can for the team and myself and whenever the manager wants something from me, I try to do my best. The next step for me would be to try get a consistent run of games in the Premier League.

“The head coach and I have a good relationship, he's got a pretty good relationship with all the players. We do everything as a team and we try to do it not just for the manager but for the club.”
