"But I was very positive because of what the players showed in this game. I knew that they would. I think we played very well but I'm speaking about the mentality the players brought to the game.
"The players are together, the players want to win, they are committed and today they went to the pitch only with one thing in their mind and that was to win the game."

Meanwhile, West Brom's defeat to Spurs means they are rooted to the base of the table as they are 19th with 11 points so far.
