Roberto Martinez insists Wigan's "change of mentality" this season shows he made the right choice to stay with the club in the summer despite being courted by Liverpool.

Wigan are currently level on points with Liverpool, but are chasing a third consecutive league win against West Brom on Saturday - and three points that would see them leapfrog the Merseysiders.

Liverpool at Anfield will be the next challenge for Wigan after West Brom, but for Martinez there are no regrets about his decision to commit himself to the Latics. Martinez told the Press Association: "In the summer it was the end of the three-year period we agreed with the chairman (Dave Whelan), and that was the time I had to reflect and allow the chairman to reflect."
