Adam Lallana had a big influence on Levi Colwill during the Chelsea defender's time on loan with us last season.

Levi Colwill has admitted that Adam Lallana pushing him during training with Albion helped him become a better player.

The Chelsea defender spent last season on loan with us, making 17 Premier League appearances to help us to our best top-flight finish of sixth.

The centre-back admitted that his laidback style has its pros and cons, and that former teammate Lallana wanted to see more from the aspiring England international.

“I am someone who is a chilled person and sometimes I need someone to give me a bit of a push," Colwill explained.

Levi Colwill has been a regular for Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino.

“At first I did not really understand why he (Adam) was always on at me in training.

"He would give me compliments, if I needed them. If I was struggling a bit, he asked me if I was alright.

"If I was doing well, he would push me to make sure I was still doing well. He would always communicate.

“He was always putting his arm around me, the same as Lewis Dunk.”
