Claudio Yacob: Says the Baggies need to have no fear this season
West Brom new-boy Claudio Yacob insists the club need to continue with the same fearless manner in which they have started the Premier League season.
The Baggies have enjoyed a superb opening to the campaign under new manager Steve Clarke, beating Liverpool and Everton and drawing with Tottenham to sit third in the fledgling standings.
Argentina international Yacob, a summer arrival from native club Racing, has featured in all three of those games and has been delighted by Albion's success.
The 25-year-old midfielder admits facing Liverpool on his debut was tough but believes West Brom do not have cause to fear any team.
"It was a great challenge to play against Liverpool in my first game - especially as I hadn't played for three or four months in Argentina," Yacob told the Express & Star.
"I realised that playing against Liverpool was a very difficult challenge in my first game.
"But I prepared well leading up to the game and I was very pleased the result was a positive one.
"I was fully aware of the history, prestige and reputation of Liverpool. But we also need to take into account that West Brom have a very good history. We shouldn't be afraid of playing teams like Liverpool."
