Lewis Dunk has told Albion's players it is not enough just to play well.

The skipper called on them to make sure they got the result they deserved before they walked out at the Emirates to face Arsenal.

His thoughts and message are likely to be the same tomorrow against Wolves as Albion look to build on their 2-1 success over the Gunners.

Neal Maupay, whose header sank Arsenal, believes Albion have played well for most of the season without getting rewards they have merited.

He revealed Dunk thinks the same and made his feelings known ahead of Thursday’s match.

Maupay said: “It has been frustrating. We were playing well and feeling like we could get more points from these games.

“Before the (Arsenal) game, Lewis talked to us and told us it’s not enough to say we played well and didn’t get the win.

“Let’s play well and get the win and that is what we did.

“The last few weeks have been hard for us.

“Sometimes we play good football but we don’t get results.

“We had both (on Thursday). We played really well, especially in the first half.

“We started the second half a bit slower.

“They are a good team so they scored but we kept fighting, kept working hard and I think we deserved the win.”

Albion impressed with their football beneath what was quite a large national spotlight.

Admittedly the media were there mainly to check on the latest ‘crisis’ at a big-six club in Arsenal.

But the football played by the support act in black could not be ignored.

Maupay said: “We are trying to build something with the manager.

“We have been playing like that the whole season, even if we have had struggles.

“But we are not going to change our game.

“We are going to play our football, our philosophy, stick to what the manager wants.

“That is the only way we can get results because that is our DNA.”

Maupay netted on his return to the XI after being left on the bench at Liverpool.

He went on as sub at Anfield with his side chasing an equaliser and knew more opportunities would not be long in coming.

The Frenchman said: “The manager made a few changes but it’s football.

“I just needed to keep working, keep believing in myself, like I do.

“We are in a really busy period so I knew I was going to get my chance again very soon.

“I was ready and I think I played a good game.

“It’s the Premier League, it’s Christmas and it is always busy.”

Maupay believes he should have more goals to his name.

But head coach Graham Potter has offered a ringing endorsement of his efforts.

Potter said: “Even the best ones miss and they miss more often than you think.

“We’ve just been working with him.

“He works hard for the team, he’s a fantastic character, never gives up, responds really well to setbacks and that’s what we want to try and have here.

“And then, as much as you want to encourage that, it’s nice for him to get the rewards which is the goal, which is to influence the game and to get the winning goal and three points for the team to contribute in that way.

“It’s good for him. I think he needed a little bit of a breather against Liverpool.”
