Olsson insists West Brom capable of Euro qualification

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson insists Europa League qualification is not out of reach.

They dropped to ninth following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Chelsea with close rivals Everton, Liverpool and Swansea all winning.

But Olsson insisted: “We need to aim to be up in the top six or seven.

“If we have been up there for 27 or 28 rounds of games, why can’t we be there after 38? I am aiming to stay up there and push for a better position than last year (10th) and then see if we can get into Europe.

“If we can perform the way we have been in the last couple of weeks, we have every chance.

“We are all professionals and we always have something to strive for."
