Phillips delighted to climb into top six

Winger continued fine form with final goal on Saturday

MATT Phillips says Albion are going from strength to strength after climbing to sixth place in the Premier League.

The Baggies’ 3-1 win over Watford at The Hawthorns propelled them above the Hornets, Everton and Manchester United into the top six, sitting on 20 points from 14 matches played.

It’s now four unbeaten in the top flight as well for Tony Pulis’ side, with just two defeats in ten games.

And Phillips, who scored his third goal in four games on Saturday afternoon, is delighted with how things are working out after making the switch from QPR in the summer.

He said: “We are playing some really good stuff at the moment.

“We are in the top six now.

“That’s the type of thing I was looking for when I joined the club in the summer.

“This is a big club and we have some really talented players here.

“We are going from strength to strength at the moment and everyone is pleased.”
