Lucas Leiva described Liverpool’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion as a ‘massive’ result earned through a controlled performance at The Hawthorns.
Roberto Firmino scored the only goal of the Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon when he headed home a Lucas assist from a well-worked set-piece late in the first half.
The strike gave the Reds another priceless victory in their race for a top-four finish, with just five matches now remaining this season.
“I think it’s a massive result for us,” Lucas told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We know how difficult it is to play West Bromwich Albion away from home and I thought we defended really well, we kept a clean sheet and we won the game.
“It’s a good day, we controlled the game, we had a few chances at the end of the game and we deserved to win it.”
