Olsson won't blame bad luck

BY foxsports • August 29, 2011

Albion have now lost their opening three games, including setbacks against high-riding Manchester United and Chelsea, and Olsson knows they must improve. He said: "You want to get up and running as soon as possible. You don't want to stay on zero points for too long. "If you look at these opening three fixtures, we ended up with no points from those games last season as well and had quite a good season. "It is very early to speak about a crisis. The basics are there. We looked quite solid in all three games but details have to be better, I guess." But Olsson added: "I don't think it's down to luck. You are heading the wrong way if you blame defeats on bad luck. "I think these three games we've played well, but not played well enough, and we've not been focused enough for 90 minutes, I guess. "We tend to play all right but not good enough and United, Chelsea and Stoke will punish you. "Stoke are an efficient team. That is why they are so good. Give them a goal chance and they will take it and they defend well also. That's why they are up there and we are not."
