Bartley and Townsend feature Liverpool Albion News


Defenders Kyle Bartley and Conor Townsend feature in Sunday’s Albion News, as the Baggies prepare to welcome 2019/20 Premier League champions Liverpool to The Hawthorns.


Vice-captain Bartley spoke following Albion’s decisive 3-1 defeat against Arsenal last Sunday, but the centre-back is pushing the Baggies to prove their capabilities against the big teams once again this weekend.

The 29-year-old is still determined to lead the Baggies to a positive run of results in the remaining three games, as Bartley looks to get “momentum” rolling heading into next season.


Conor Townsend’s feature entails much of the same, as the left-back reveals how he’s evolved his game to cope with the strenuous demands and elite opponents in the Premier League.

Townsend is likely to come up against another challenging counterpart in Mohamed Salah on Sunday and as the Hessle-born defender recalls his toughest task this season (keeping Marcus Rashford quiet), he’s looking to do the same again this weekend to extend Albion’s solid recent run at home.


Our academy feature sees Josh Griffiths and Finn Azaz reflect on an unbelievable first loan spell after helping Cheltenham Town lift the League Two title.

Both were mainstays in the Robins’ promotion campaign, and the Baggies pair provide an in-depth analysis of their development after experiencing league football for the very first time.
