West Brom's Foster rates Liverpool showing as his best

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster believes his performance against Liverpool on Monday night was the best of his career.

The Baggies gloveman produced a string of fine saves to deny the Reds in his sides 2-0 win at Anfield as well as denying Steven Gerrard from the penalty spot when it was still 0-0 and he suggests it was his best-ever showing.

"That penalty save probably just made it the best," said Foster.

"I played a really good game against Chelsea at St Andrew's (for Birmingham City) a couple of years ago, which we won 1-0 when Lee Bowyer scored.

"I played well in that game and the Carling Cup final was great when Birmingham beat Arsenal in 2011.

"But with the penalty save and the fact we were playing at Anfield, that performance probably just tops it.

"There was also the fact we needed the win so badly which was probably just the icing on the cake. It was a really sweet one."
