Osaze Odemwingie has said West Brom deserved their big 2-1 home win over mighty Chelsea on Saturday.
“I think we totally deserved our victory,” he told his club’s website.
“It felt great to be in the top five and today was an opportunity to climb a little bit more up the table.
“That lifted us up a bit and we started the second half well, as we did the first.
“The better the results we get the more the confidence grows and also the faith we have in ourselves.
“Our desire to be in the top five keeps us working hard for every point.”
The Nigeria international revealed how manager Steve Clarke’s half-time team talk inspired Albion to overcome ‘The Blues’ after the disappointment of conceding a late first-half equaliser – and move into the Champions League qualification places.
“After they equalised we were disappointed but the gaffer told us that we shouldn’t be disappointed being 1-1 with Chelsea,” he disclosed.
