Simon Mignolet was delighted Liverpool showed their defensive capabilities against West Brom
Liverpool have often been criticised this season for shipping in too many goals.
No team in the top seven has conceded more goals than Liverpool this campaign.
But a vital 1-0 win over West Brom kept them in the hunt for a top four finish at the end of the season.
"There's a lot of people who are said that we aren't defending as well as we could but today we proved that we can," Mignolet said.
The win over West Brom was Liverpool's first clean sheet since February
"That has to be the benchmark now.
"You know they're going to throw everything at you in the closing minutes but we dealt with it well.
"We scored one goal but that was enough for today."
