West Brom boss Bryan Robson felt his side deserved to get something out of their game at home to Arsenal.
"I think sometimes there's no justice in the game," he said after his struggling side were beaten 2-0.
"The effort they put in they deserved something out of the game but we didn't get any breaks.
"We had a lot of set-plays when we looked dangerous and I think we did look threatening, you need a bit of a break and we didn't get it."
Albion are still in the bottom three and face Robson's former club Manchester United at the weekend.
He added: "We're relying on other people but we've got a fighting chance, there are still matches to be won," he added.
"United are going for second position and the Champions League is very important to Arsenal and Manchester United, I know we'll get no favours."
