Shane Long claims West Brom players not overly confident

WEST Brom's leading goalscorer Shane Long says the players will keep their feet firmly on the ground despite breaking into the English Premier League top three.

The Baggies have won their past four games in the top flight.

But Long, who has hit the net five times this season, says no one is getting carried away despite having winnable games against Swansea (tomorrow) and Stoke on Sunday coming up.

"Swansea are a good passing team too and that should make it a good game to watch," he told BBC WM.

"We know we'll get nothing easy.

"It's good times at West Brom. But the further we go the more respect we'll get from other teams and the harder it will be."

In other games tomorrow morning, Chelsea will host Fulham, while Tottenham plays Liverpool at White Hart Lane.

Manchester United will entertain West Ham, while Manchester City heads to Wigan.

Southampton plays Norwich, Everton hosts Arsenal and Stoke takes on Newcastle.
