Graham Potter says his players welcome the challenge of being involved during Albion's busiest period of the season.
After Sunday's trip to West Ham United, Albion entertain Arsenal at the Amex 48 hours later before hosting Wolves on Saturday, January 2nd. That's three games in six days but the head coach sees it as a 'really exciting challenge.'
“There is a challenge because we play on the 27th, then the 29th. So that in itself is a quick turnaround, with 48 hours between the West Ham and Arsenal games.

“We are going to need the squad and in a way that is an exciting time because there will be opportunities and the dynamics that can change.
But fundamentally we have to be together as a group. It is a really exciting challenge and one we have to take on.”
The players will train on Christmas Eve, spend Christmas Day with their families and train on Boxing Day before travelling to London.
“This year we have a recovery day on Christmas Day so that gives the players some time with their families, all be it in a limited way because of the situation we are in. We will have a training session on the 26th and then we are ready to play the following day.”
