Jonas Olsson believes West Brom deserve to be as high as third in the Premier League as they have played good football this season.
The Baggies' current run of four consecutive wins has seen them climb above European champions Chelsea, a club Steve Clarke left to become Albion boss.
Albion are now just four points behind leaders Manchester United ahead of Wednesday's game at Swansea City and it is a position Olsson says is deserved.
The Swedish international told Sportbladet: "We have a strong side and a nice depth in the squad. The defensive organisation has been really good.
"We have deserved all the points, because we have played good football."
