Harvey loving life at Albion

HARVEY Barnes says he's loving his time with the Baggies as he shone in the rout of QPR.

In a 7-1 romp, Harvey was the puppet-master, a constant threat in the thick of the action.

And in a game which saw the 20-year-old play like he was with his friends at the park, it was clear how much he's enjoying his football.

"I'm really happy with how things are going here," Harvey smiled.

"I've settled in really well and the boys have been really good to me - on the pitch and off it.

"I feel really confident playing in this team.

"When you get the momentum in a game like that, scoring goals and getting chances, it's a lot more enjoyable than being on the back foot of course.

"There was a lot of confidence flowing through the team today which was good."

But it wasn't all about the frontline. Attacks were built from playing out from the back in a new system for Darren Moore's men.

Harvey added: "We've got a lot of pace going forward. Players on the ball have always got an option. But defensively we also looked very good today.

"We didn't let them have many chances and we played out from the back well which is something we tried to do today.

"The message was to attack from the start.

"We knew we needed the three points but we also wanted to play good football.

"We executed it well today."
