GLENN MURRAY has hailed his unique partnership with unselfish Pascal Gross as they joined the Premier League elite.

Albion’s 11-goal top scorer says he has never had a sidekick quite like the creative German.

Gross produced his fourth assist of the season for Murray when he crossed for the winning goal in Sunday’s 2-1 success over Arsenal.

The bargain summer buy from Ingolstadt is enjoying a productive debut season in England and Murray can see why.

He told The Argus: “The more we play together, I understand him more.

“He’s just very composed on the ball, he never really gets flustered and he more often than not chooses the right option.

“He’s got a very different outlook on the game and I think that’s the way he has been brought up and his ethos with football.

“He’s more of a creator, much more than anyone else I’ve played with.

“He gets great enjoyment out of creating chances and goals for people as you can see by his stats.”

Gross set up a goal for Anthony Knockaert when Albion drew 1-1 at home to Everton, the side they visit on Saturday.

His total of eight assists is bettered only by four players from the Manchester giants – City trio Leroy Sane, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne plus United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Gross and Murray also figure among the Premier League leaders as a pair.

Cesar Azpilicueta has assisted six goals for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata and De Bruyne has set up Sergio Aguero five times for City.

They are the only link-ups which have been more profitable than the Gross-to-Murray goal combination.

Gross has also passed up chances to shoot so he could set up colleagues, most recently with a clever back heel to Knockaert against the Gunners.

Asked if he should develop a more greedy side to his game, Murray replied with a laugh: “I’m not sure about that!”

As well as his four assists for Murray, Gross has also set up Knockaert (twice), Tomer Hemed and Solly March.
