James Morrison: 'West Bromwich Albion gave it everything'

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison says that the team "gave it everything" in their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal earlier today.

James Morrison has said that West Bromwich Albion "gave it everything" in their match against Arsenal earlier today.

Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the game as the Baggies lost 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium, a result that means that they are still not mathematically safe from relegation.

The midfielder told the club's website: "I think you could see by the performance, the lads gave it everything. We were just lacking those clear-cut chances. I'm proud of the team, we dug in deep.

"We huffed and puffed and had a few chances from set pieces, it's a bitter blow to lose to a set piece. We gave 100% and I think we were on top late on in the second half.

"We'd worked all week on our shape, trying to force them out wide and then score off a set piece early on ourselves. But we dug in and worked until the end. Who knows, one of those half-chances could have gone in."

The result leaves West Brom three points clear of the relegation zone with two games left to play.
