Jonas Olsson feels West Brom have not been given the credit they deserve for their exploits this season.
The Baggies sit sixth in the Premier League table after eight games, having enjoyed a dream return to the big time.
A 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelsea on the opening weekend has long since been forgotten, with results since then proving that Roberto Di Matteo's men deserve to be mixing it with England's elite.
They have taken five points off Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United over recent weeks, with a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday achieved after falling two goals behind.
Di Matteo's side have also sent Manchester City crashing out of the Carling Cup and hammered local rivals Birmingham 3-1 in their first derby date of the campaign.
West Brom have yet to receive the respect their performances have merited, though, with more made of the failings of their opponents than their richly-deserved success.
Olsson believes it is time for that attitude to change, as the Baggies have more than held their own against some illustrious foes this term.
He said in the Express and Star: "I am a little bit sick of, every time we get a good result, everyone talking about United not having a good day, Arsenal not having a good day and Manchester City not having a good day.
"I think people have to give some credit to us because we have done it now week in, week out, against Tottenham, against Liverpool, against Arsenal, against City, and I think people have to look at our performance and say that we did well.
"We could have won the game on Saturday. Maybe United didn't have their best game but we did well.
"We now have 12 points after eight games and we deserve every point we've got so far. We are not going to apologise for where we are.
"We deserve to be where we are and we're looking forward to getting another good result against Fulham next week."
