West Bromwich Albion captain Jake Livermore has said that he can evolve into a better performer for his team by adding more goals to his game. The 30-year-old has been one of the standout players for the Baggies in their promotion-chasing campaign and he has bagged three goals from 36 appearances in the Championship.

As a result, he is one of the contenders for the Player of the Year alongside Matheus Pereira but Livermore feels he can contribute more in an attacking point of view, he told: “I am quite critical of myself. Before the season was suspended we’d had some good results and it was just nice to be in that spine of the team with the other guys. I am just glad to be able to help the team. In terms of my own form, I still feel I can add a lot more goals to my game. The manager and his coaching staff have been really good with me. But in terms of how I personally feel, I’ll always strive and feel I can do better.”

The west Midlands outfit have competed with Leeds at the top of the standings for most of the season and they are currently one point behind the Yorkshire outfit. Most importantly, they are six points ahead of third-placed Fulham and in a good position to seal automatic promotion to the Premier League next term.

At present, the league has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic but talks are underway for the resumption by June. Still, the games would be played behind closed doors with a view to the safety of the players and the fans. The Bundesliga recently became the first major European league to restart and there is the anticipation that the other leagues will follow suit.
