West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long believes the return of midfield duo Claudio Yacob and Youssouf Mulumbu is crucial to their hopes of qualifying for Europa League football next season.

When asked about Albion's chances of reaching the Europa League, Long said: "We may as well aim for it. I think we've got a good enough squad to do it.

"We've a few tough games between now and the end of the season but we managed to win at Liverpool and put in a good performance at Manchester United.

"We go to Chelsea after nearly winning there last year so hopefully we can get a good result and kick on from there but it is not going to be easy.

"You look at their line-up. We are not getting ahead of ourselves.

"We know it will be a tough task but we are confident in the way we are playing and we can put up against any team."
