Carson impressed by West Brom pal Barnett

Scott Carson was impressed by young West Brom defender Leon Barnett for Saturday's defeat at Arsenal.

Carson said: "It's not easy to come straight in and play a game against Arsenal. I thought Abdoulaye (Meite) and Leon were superb. People can't expect all of us to click with each other straight away but it was an encouraging start.

"From what I've seen, Leon is a great defender. He reminds me a lot of Curtis Davies. They're similar in the way they play. I thought he was outstanding on Saturday."
