West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison says they deserve their lofty table position.

Scotland midfielder Morrison returned from injury to head in the opener in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Wigan, a maiden away success of the season that consolidated the midlands club's fifth-place position.

"Everyone thinks it's a bit of fluke us being up there but it's not, the gaffer sets us up each week to counter the opposition and everyone works extremely hard for the team," said Morrison.

"I think Chelsea will be really wary of us. It's a tough test at The Hawthorns and we've had some good wins along the way this season."
