Aaron Mooy has praised Albion and Socceroos team-mate Maty Ryan ahead of his big Kop test.

Ryan has played every minute of the Seagulls’ 13 Premier League games and has also been in great form for Australia.

He faces a major examination against leaders Liverpool today.

Mooy said: “He’s been playing well for both Albion and Australia.

“I think he is always trying to get better and you can see his attitude is coming out on the pitch. I am very happy for him.”

Mooy hopes to be involved at Anfield after an impressive performance in the defeat to Leicester.

He said: “I moved a little bit more central and got involved more, which was enjoyable. I’m happy to play anywhere.”
