Since arriving at Liverpool two summers ago, Nathaniel Clyne has been a fixture in the starting lineup. Seemingly never injured or fatigued, the right back has already logged 42 Premier League starts for the Reds.
Therefore, Clyne has an optimal perspective on the development of the squad, as he's participated in over 89 percent of possible league matches in his time at Anfield.
His assessment of Liverpool's 2-1 win over West Brom was very positive. Even though the Reds stalled in the second half, he said, the attacking fluidity the team showed was impressive.
"We played really well, especially in the first half when we took the game to them and were really bright," he said (via the Echo). "They couldn't live with us."
As far as late-game jitters went, Clyne was unconcerned because the squad could have gone ahead by "four or five" on another day with the amount of chances it created.
"We've got a lot of movement up front, a lot of ability on the ball and off the ball and a lot of chances," he said. "It's good to play in a team that's creating chances. We're very pleased. It's a great start. We're second at the moment and we're pushing on. It's all good."
It's hard to disagree with the defender's opinion of the club's fortunes. Any win over a Tony Pulis coached side is a challenge, and Liverpool took care of business in style this weekend.
