Jonas Olsson feels West Brom have not performed to their full potential in their last two matches, but he insists that the back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal will not define their season.
The centre-back thinks that the defeats were down to their opponents playing to their full potential whilst Roy Hodgson's men did not reach theirs.
Olsson insists however that come the end of the season it is results against teams around them and not teams with UEFA Champions League aspirations that will count.
Four of the Baggies' next five games come against Bolton, QPR, Wigan and Blackburn and a return to winning ways could go a long way to steering clear of relegation.
He told the club's official website: "It always knocks your confidence a little bit when you lose back-to-back games - no matter who they're against.
"We said in the locker room at Arsenal afterwards that 'we didn't get anything out of these games but these are not the games that are going to keep us in the league.
"We need to get good results against the teams around us. The games coming up are really important ones.
"If you look at the last two games, we weren't, maybe, at our best.
"To be fair to Arsenal and Liverpool, they played very well and sometimes you have to put your hands up and say they were better than us.
"We showed last year we can compete with those teams but to get anything against them something has to click and we have to be at our very best.
"We weren't on Saturday, nor against Liverpool. That's the way I see it."
