Claudio Yacob urges West Bromwich Albion to continue to be fearless against the big Premier League clubs.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob has called on his club to 'show no fear' against any team in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old has impressed as West Bromwich Albion have beaten Liverpool and Everton and secured a draw away at Tottenham Hotspur, and Yacob has admitted that he has been delighted with the club's start to the season.

Yacob told the Express & Star through an interpreter: "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.

"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 that 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."

The Argentinian player signed for West Bromwich Albion from Racing Club during the summer.
