Pardew On Liverpool - Krychowiak Looks To United

Pardew On Liverpool - Krychowiak Looks To United

West Bromwich Albion head coach Alan Pardew has spoken of his pride at a well earned point against Liverpool in midweek and Grzegorz Krychowiak has looked to the tie against Manchester United.

Travelling to Anfield in midweek and taking a scoreless draw on the day with a spirited defensive display to become the first side since Manchester United to prevent them scoring, Pardew told in his post game press conference that it was all credit to the players for the result and to the fans given the motorway delays they suffered on the day.

'It was a great display. If we`d had all our stadium here watching that I think they would be very proud. We had fans in the corner who had a terrible journey to get here and they were rewarded with a very strong display against all the big hitters - Liverpool played all their big hitters.'

Pardew went on to say.

'We kept them very quiet and created on transition better moments, in the limited number that we had, than we did at Swansea. That`s an improvement but still an area to work on. We worked hard on the training ground and in the classroom and the boys saw the game out. It`s all well and good having a decent game plan but the players have to deliver. We had some really strong performances - and if you get four or five 'eights` in your team that normally constitutes points.'

Reflecting on Liverpool, Ahmed Hegazi also said post game.

'It`s a very important point for us. Now we must build on this, and I`m looking forward to the next game. Whenever we keep a clean sheet it`s good for us, and when you play against a very good team and very good players you must be happy with it. Mohamed Salah is one of the best players in the Premier League this season and we played well against him. He is very, very good but I`m happy he didn't score today!'

Turning attentions to Manchester United at The Hawthorns, Krychowiak said this week.

'It was a difficult game but most important was the point. If you want to have a good result against such difficult opponents you have to run and fight and work for 90 minutes. All the team did and we can be proud. I couldn`t play 90 minutes because this was my first game in three weeks and it was a little but hard physically. But now we have another big game against Manchester United. Now we have to start scoring again. It`s a big game but we are capable of a win.'

He added.

'I would like to thank the fans because they are always with us. They support us and it is easy for us to play in front of them.'
