McClean “delighted” with his form and unbeaten run

Winger has impressed for Baggies

JAMES McClean is “delighted” with both the level of his performances and the solidity of his side over the last month.

The Republic of Ireland winger, who scored twice for them against Moldova in last week's World Cup qualifiers, has produced some eye-catching displays in recent times, helping the Baggies go four Premier League games unbeaten.

His latest impressive showing came in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with title-chasing Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns, where Albion would have taken all three points had it not have been for Dele Alli’s late equaliser.

And with more challenging fixtures to come against Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester all before the next international break, McClean believes the Baggies can head into them full of confidence given their sturdy results of late.

He said: “We are four unbeaten now so it’s all good signs.

“I’m delighted with the way I am playing at the moment and the team is also doing well so I am happy.

“Saturday was a tough game against a quality side and, if I am honest, we were outplayed by Spurs in the first half.

“But in the second 45 we gave it a right good go and we were unfortunate not to hold on to the lead.

“It’s massive to go into these three games now with an unbeaten record behind us as well as that point against Spurs.

“You want to try and get as many points on the board as possible.

“As the cliché goes, there’s no easy games in this league and that is shown every week.

“We have a healthy league position, we are playing well and we are also showing that we are difficult to beat.

“Let’s keep that going.”
