After victory against Southampton gave the Baggies their highest-ever Premier League points total, 48, the midfielder sees no reason to fear last season's champions

West Brom midfielder James Morrison says that his side will go into Tuesday night's game against Manchester City with confidence after an improvement in away form.

The Baggies recorded an impressive 3-0 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium on Saturday and the Scot revealed that manager Steve Clarke has told the squad that they are due a result against one of the league's top teams.

"Obviously, it will be really tough game," Morrison told West Brom's official website. "All we can do is go there and enjoy it. We're looking forward to testing ourselves against some top players.

"We'll go there with confidence as our away form has picked up recently. We'll be looking to upset them.

"The best moments are when you beat a top quality side. The gaffer has said that we're due a big result and hopefully we can get that."

It has been a fantastic season already for West Brom, who sit comfortably in eighth place in the Premier League, having already secured their highest-ever Premier League points total as well as a record number of top-flight wins.

Morrison is particularly pleased with his team-mates' performances after some pundits tipped them to struggle in 2012-13 following the loss of manager Roy Hodgson to England in the summer.

"It has been a great season," the midfielder enthused. "We've broken loads of records which we might not have thought we would do during pre-season; it's a credit to the boys, the head coach and the fans that we have been able to do that.

"It shows what a good job we've done that some people might have thought we were going to struggle to better last season.

"It's been a lot of hard work. There have been lots of ups and downs which you always have over the course of a season. The lads have produced when we have needed it."
