Mbaye Diagne has stressed West Bromwich Albion will give their all to avoid relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.

Buoyed by that result, the Galatasaray loanee is positive that his club would escape demotion to the Championship.

“With the squad we have at the moment, we are confident, we are fighting and you can see that in our play,” Diagne told the club website.

“We have missed opportunities to win games. We have been on top in games. All of these things are making us feel confident we can stay in the Premier League if we keep working hard.”

Allardyce’s team welcome Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton to the Hawthorns in their next league fixture on Thursday, and victory over the Europe-chasing Toffees would ease their relegation worries.

For the 29-year-old, the Baggies can pull off a win against the Goodison Park giants having secured impressive results against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils, Sean Dyche’s Clarets and the Seagulls.

“I was confident we would beat Brighton and we are going to give everything to get another three points against Everton,” he added.

“It will be a tough game, but all the games are tough in the Premier League.

“We drew against Manchester United, we drew against Burnley with 10 men and then we beat Brighton. There’s no reason why we can’t now go and get a good result against Everton.”

Since joining West Brom on loan from the Turkish elite division, the Senegal international – who had featured for Club Brugge and Kasimpasa in the past – has featured in six league games, with his only goal coming in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford with Manchester United.
