The Baggies remain “positive” and united in their belief that this will still be the club’s most successful Premier League campaign – despite the disappointment of three successive defeats.

Albion remain in the top six and have back-to-back home games with which to re-ignite their challenge.

And Morrison says supporters should not fret over confidence being shaken by the defeats against Swansea, Stoke and Arsenal.

“We knew going to the Emirates was a tough game but the effort was there and we’ve still got belief in our changing room – so we will look forward to a home game next week against West Ham,” said Morrison.

“There is no change in mood. We are still positive and working hard, we’ve got a good group and we are all together and looking forward to the next game.”

Albion have run into their first disruptions in recent weeks with the loss of Claudio Yacob with a hamstring problem but Morrison said: “We have coped well when players have been injured or missing. We will just keep going and working hard.”
