The Baggies face a daunting penultimate month to the season, as they attempt to preserve their Premier League status.

Roy Hodgson's side have dragged themselves out of the drop zone over recent weeks, but are perched just a point above the bottom three.

Their hopes of avoiding a swift return to the Championship could rest on how successfully they are able to negotiate their next five fixtures.

Games against Liverpool, Sunderland, Chelsea, Tottenham and Aston Villa will test their top flight credentials to the fullest, but Morrison believes the Baggies can accumulate enough points to see them edge towards safety - pointing to a 2-2 draw with Arsenal as proof that they are capable of holding their own among England's elite.

"I can't see why we can't get more points," he said in the Birmingham Mail.

"Arsenal are a team that cut sides open and Liverpool, with Roy being an ex-manager there, will be a bit extra-special and I'm sure he will get us fired up.

"Chelsea are a physical team with lots of strength in depth and they will be coming here and looking at it is a three-pointer.

"But, looking at our performance last Saturday [against Arsenal], I don't think they will get an easy game."
