Lewis Dunk has captained Albion to their best ever Premier League start.

Lewis Dunk said Albion were a bit disappointed not to beat Liverpool at Anfield.

Albion came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 thanks to goals from Enock Mwepu and Leandro Trossard, who also had a goal disallowed.

The home side were 2-0 up inside 24 minutes and had a goal disallowed before Albion got to grips with their opponents and went on to dominate long spells of the second half.

Dunk said, “Leo’s offside goal was that close, I’m a bit disappointed to win it in the end, it was a very good performance.

Trossard on amazing Anfield comeback!

“We weren’t quite with it in the first 30 minutes but to come from 2-0 down to get a point was a great feeling. We knew they would start fast and they have got a quality squad, but we got to grips and showed character we have got in the dressing room."

Albion won 1-0 at an empty Anfield in January but Dunk believes this result was just as impressive.

“Their fans can be noisy and it’s totally different with them in the ground but so were ours, they really got behind us as they always do.

"We’d always take a point at Anfield and I think it shows the progress we’re making as a squad and the togetherness in the dressing room.”
