Tony Pulis is hoping to bounce back from West Brom’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal against Spurs on Monday night.
The Baggies’ manager admitted that although the Gunners fully deserved the win, he’ll be hoping to get something from their match against Tottenham.
“That was our most disappointing performance – Arsenal deserved to win because we looked flat,”
Pulis said to
West Brom’s website
“White Hart Lane is one of my favourite grounds, it’s a fantastic stadium with a great atmosphere.
“Everything to do with the club is first class. I enjoy taking teams and we need to make sure we are up for it.
“I’ve said before that I would love to see Leicester win the League but if not then I’m also happy with Tottenham.
“It’s great for football that there will be a different team picking up the trophy this year.
“We didn’t do very well on Thursday – we have to dust ourselves down and put a performance in on Monday.”

Pulis obviously has faith in his current team but without a relegation battle or anything to fight for, I doubt we’ll see a dynamic performance from the Baggies at White Hart Lane.
From an Arsenal perspective, no matter what way you look at it, we want Spurs to lose.
Leicester won their weekend match against Swansea and, therefore, the Lily Whites can’t make up any ground on their title rivals. However, if they drop points, it pulls them further away from that top spot. In addition, we don’t ever want to see Spurs win so hopefully West Brom can do the unthinkable and take some points off that lot.
