West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke was thrilled with Zoltan Gera's goal scoring performance in victory over Liverpool.

Clarke admits having Gera available is "like a new signing" after he missed all but three games of last season with ankle and knee ligament problems.

He said: "Zoltan has had a difficult time with injuries but he has worked so hard to get back to this position.

"It is like a new signing for us really. He has come back and he might be getting on in years, but he is enthusiastic and wants to be part of what we are trying to do here."
