‘He’s been absolutely excellent’ - Moore

DARREN Moore has hailed Jake Livermore’s role in the late-season revival that has kept Albion alive in the Premier League survival battle.

The midfielder, who didn’t miss a minute of action in April, has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award.

Livermore has had a heavy influence in the middle of the park, scoring in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool at The Hawthorns before setting up Matt Phillips with a pin-point pass in last weekend’s 1-0 victory at St. James’ Park.

And Moore has challenged the England international to maintain his impressive form, starting with the visit of his former club Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

He said: “I’m delighted for Jake that he’s been nominated for the award.

“I’m delighted for him as a player and as a person. He’s a talented player and a respectful human being who considers others before himself.

“We’ve seen his positive energy around the training ground and around the Club.

“His performances have shown why he has been nominated – he’s been absolutely excellent.

“We want to see his good form continue right the way through to the end of the season.

“Obviously here at West Bromwich Albion, we want to see him go to that World Cup and represent his country.

"He is right on track for that and long may it continue."
