LEANDRO TROSSARD has praised Albion manager Graham Potter and admitted that it is "lovely" to work for him.

The Belgian attacker is enjoying his best season since joining the club three seasons ago from KRC Genk.

Trossard has scored eight goals this season and assisted three more in his 33 Premier League appearances this season, including two assists and a goal in Albion's 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United on Saturday.

The 27-year-old believes the club has developed under Potter since his arrival at the club and argues that the club are having its best season.

He said: "Yeah it is lovely. It is my third year with him now and you can see how we have developed as a team.

"It is our best season yet and if we could act like this every single week we can do special things with this team.

"Obviously I work on that every day. We had some not so good spells during the season and it is hard for me.

"I am enjoying it and the gaffer has helped as well by saying to just keep believing and if he shows the confidence in me I will give it back.

"That is what I am doing."

Trossard has had to develop his game with Potter as the manager tends to utilise players in different positions and recently the traditional attacker has had to play as a wing-back, but it has not phased him.

When asked if the wing-back role was his new favourite position, Trossard said: "Favourite? I wouldn't say that but if the gaffer wants me to play there I don't mind to play there.

"I like to be on my pitch enjoying my game and it has worked the last couple of weeks."
