West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson feels they've received a reality check this season.

Albion finished eighth last season in their best Premier League finish but Olsson believes survival must always be their first aim.

"We need to be realistic, for a club of our size," Olsson told the Express & Star. "You have targets and ambitions but, without taking my ambitions down, any season when West Brom stay in the Premier League is an OK achievement."

"It's a really tough league and you're going to have seasons like this if you're a club of our size.

"Look at Sunderland, Fulham and Cardiff this year - clubs with a far greater budget than we have.

"That's the reality of this league."
