Midfielder has made great progress but has more to offer.

Yves Bissouma has made the most amount of tackles of any Albion player in the Premier League this season - 12.

Graham Potter is delighted with Yves Bissouma's progress in the last 18 months but thinks the midfielder can get even better.

Bissouma made his 100th Albion appearance last Saturday when he produced another eye-catching display in the 1-0 win over Brentford.

The 25-year-old lines up against Leicester City at the Amex today in the best form of his career.

But, according to Potter, the 'exciting thing' is that there is more to come.

“He's made great steps and become an important player for us in the last 18 months or so. His consistency has improved and the lowest level of his actions are higher and his highest level is scary!

Potter's Leicester press conference

“The exciting thing for us is he has still got steps to take. We’re proud of what he's achieved but in terms of his distribution and positioning and maintaining the consistency of his highest actions he can still improve.

“The challenge for him is to be the version of himself. He’s made great steps but I think there is even more to come.”
