West Bromwich Albion defender Gareth McAuley is happy to be playing alongside Jonas Olsson.

McAuley will play his fourth successive game alongside Olsson on Monday against Liverpool after the Swede’s return from injury.

“Jonas is a massive player for the club and, when he’s out there, he’s 100 per cent committed,” he told the WBA website.

“A centre-back partnership is an important thing and we trust each other.

“We want to develop it more. We’re both disappointed we’ve conceded a lot of goals in the last few weeks and want to get back to being strong as a core at the back.

“Hopefully, we can help the team get the results we need.”
