Mel said that it was no surprise that it has taken a while to get the team playing the way he wants but is confident that they can finish the season strongly and comfortably escape the drop.
"It's normal that when a coach comes in midway through a season, it's because a team has problems," he told Sky Sports News. "No team changes its manager halfway through a season if it's winning everything. We've resolved the issues and I think the end to our season will be a good one.
"Each week we've had a different problem but these problems have been resolved. We will have a successful end. All I want is for West Bromwich Albion to be in the Premier League next season. It is a difficult job but one I love. I love the emotions West Bromwich Albion fans have shown towards me."
West Brom take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
