Graham Potter was proud of his team's endeavour against Liverpool.

Graham Potter said that Albion’s young players will benefit from the adversity they are experiencing, after they fell to a 2-0 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.

The head coach felt there were enough positives in the Albion performance to suggest they can quickly end their poor run of five successive defeats.

He said, “We’ve got a lot of young players who will benefit from this experience, that’s for sure. Robert Sanchez, Tariq Lamptey, Alexis Mac Allister and Steven Alzate will get better because of this experience and that’s a part of what we’re trying to do as a club.

Potter: I can't fault the boys

“But at the same time you’ve got to get points and you need to get results in the Premier League, it’s an unforgiving league and sometimes you have to suffer. That’s where we are.

“There are a lot of positives. It’s hard to say that when you’ve lost, but we kept going all the way and had some opportunities and we will take that into the next game.”

Albion are back in action on Wednesday against Spurs at the Amex.

“My aim is to beat Tottenham, we focus on that as that’s the only thing we can do. We’re in a bit of a moment where we’re suffering but we need to focus on the next game,” added Potter.
