ALBION completed an impressive week by making it three wins from three games in all competitions against Burnley last Sunday.
Now the Baggies are back in action at Anfield this weekend and looking to make it four successive victories. Ahead of the upcoming clash against Liverpool, football stats website WhoScored.com
crunch the numbers.
Graham Dorrans was the star of the show at The Hawthorns last week as Albion overcame a previously resilient Burnley team to romp to a resounding 4-0 win.
Prior to the emphatic triumph, the Clarets had kept three consecutive clean sheets - the longest such streak by any Barclays Premier League team this season - but Albion secured a convincing three points, with Dorrans heavily involved throughout.
In fact, so impressive was the Scot’s display that he picked up a perfect 10 rating from WhoScored.com to become their player of the week - not only in England, but across the whole of Europe.
On the other flank in the football stats website's European team of the week? One Cristiano Ronaldo.
Few would claim that Dorrans is quite on Ronaldo's level, but that game week in particular the Albion midfielder outshone the Ballon d'Or winner as well as every other player in the top five European leagues.
Dorrans scored Albion's fourth goal to wrap up what was a fantastic week for the Baggies, who had earlier progressed to the Captial One Cup fourth round and claimed their first win at White Hart Lane in 30 years courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Tottenham.
The Scotland international had, prior to netting, already been provider for two of his side's three goals, flicking a corner into the path of Saido Berahino for Albion's second before slipping the forward through on goal to make it three.
With this week's opponents, Liverpool, boasting a statistically calculated weakness of 'defending against throughball attacks', Dorrans' vision could well come in handy.
Liverpool have also looked suspect when defending set-pieces this season, most recently in their midweek 1-0 Champions League defeat at Basel, with the winning goal coming from a corner.
Albion's winner at White Hart Lane as well as their first two strikes at home to Burnley came from corner kicks and chances from dead-ball situations could be key this weekend.
Dorrans proved he is a dab hand in the box, but while also boasting a strength of 'taking set-pieces', he is a more than adequate deputy for the ever-reliable left boot of Chris Brunt.
Such has been Albion's threat from those situations that they have developed a WhoScored strength of 'attacking set-pieces' and, against a team like Liverpool, head coach Alan Irvine will want his team to make the most of chances from dead balls.
Albion's recent form suggests they are in with a chance of taking something from a game against a team whose only victory in their last four matches came at home to Championship side Middlesbrough via a penalty shootout in the Capital One Cup.
Albion have won two of their last three trips to Anfield and there is, on recent form, the chance they could add to that this weekend.
