Mauricio Pochettino: Full of praise for goalkeeper Artur Boruc

Mauricio Pochettino: Full of praise for goalkeeper Artur Boruc

The point-blank stop minutes from time showed just why the Poland goalkeeper was brought straight back into the side after missing six weeks with a fractured hand.

Adam Lallana settled a match of little quality against West Brom when he buried Gaston Ramirez's superb flick beyond Ben Foster midway through the second half to secure a 1-0 success.

"It was a great performance by Boruc and it was a massive save at the end that really saved us," the Argentine told Sky Sports through his translator.

"We know of his quality and we know how amazing he is.

"I think overall we were much better than West Bromwich today. I think we were the better team and the statistics proved that.

"Overall it was a good performance by our side.

"We have won against Cardiff (in the league) and Burnley (in the FA Cup) so it hasn't been that long since we haven't recorded a win. It hasn't been that bad a run of results for us."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
