West Bromwich Albion have recorded back-to-back big wins but manager Sam Allardyce remains realistic about their Premier League survival aspirations.
“We’re all staring at the table and it’s still a big task unfortunately,” Allardyce said after WBA’s win.
“We all know we should’ve been a lot closer than that based on the performances we have delivered. The lads are finally getting the credit they deserve because they are winning.
“We just need to keep winning games. We can’t slip up. Let’s keep winning and see what happens. The players have handled the pressure well. The pressure has grown on them but they’ve handled it by beating Chelsea and Southampton.
“At this level of performance, we are a match for anyone.”
Elsewhere on Monday, Brighton drew 0-0 at home with Everton, with the result aiding the Seagulls’ solid survival prospects although they arguably should have claimed all three points with a dominant display.
The Toffees are in the hunt for European football but are winless from their past four matches and are eighth.
