Adam Lallana played his part in the wins over Arsenal and Spurs.

Albion fans might be forgiven for thinking of Saturday’s win over Tottenham Hotspur in London as almost perfection, but midfielder Adam Lallana is having none of it.

The former England midfielder was thrilled to play his part in the 1-0 victory, and particularly in Leandro Trossard’s late winner, but he still believes Albion can get better.

Speaking after the win he said, “There are lots of positives to take from this season, but there is still room for improvement, always room for improvement.

“Credit to the boys, but also for the last three games since we came back from the international break. We had a great two weeks and used those to reset and get back to basics.

“We had a good couple of meetings and the three performances since have been nothing short of excellent. We have set our standards and there is no reason why we shouldn’t be performing to that level week in, week out.”

He has not been surprised by some of Albion’s more eye-catching results this season, against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs, but he is targeting another to help his old club in the Premier League title race this Wednesday. 

Adam added, “Tottenham are a top team and we will take a lot of confidence from Saturday. We have done both North London teams a favour, and that is the beauty of the Premier League. 

“We are playing against tough teams week in, week out, but we are one of them, and we have caused a few upsets this season against big teams. Hopefully we can do at least one more on Wednesday night against City for my old [Liverpool] teammates.”
