West Bromwich Albion have, for many, been the stand-out team this season. With some impressive results- most notably, their victories over Liverpool and Chelsea- Steve Clarke's side have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with and are currently sitting one point off Chelsea at fourth.
The midlands club have surprised many with their terrific form- so what is the key to their current success in the Premier League?
The Baggies goalkeeping coach, Dean Kiely, has given some insight into what is happening at West Brom at the moment, in two recent radio interviews.
Dean has revealed there is a real buzz at the Hawthorns this season. He says every player has been showing "a real desire at training" to impress new manager Steve Clarke and get "involved in something that is winning and successful". Steve Clarke's contribution did not go unmentioned- Kiely explained the Scotsman has "stamped his own mark at the club", whilst being able to keep things "ticking along".
Dean also commended his sides "solid" defence, which is allowing their talented attacking force to flourish. Shane Long, Peter Odemwingie and Lukaka recieved a special mention from the goalkeeping coach. He believes the sides strike force is capable of giving any Premier League defence a "tricky and difficult afternoon".
He later took to Twitter to praise the training equipment West Brom have at their disposal- which were provided by ourselves at Diamond Football. Dean tweeted to his 15,000 followers that "top equipment = top results".
We hope that The Baggies form continues and they can upset some of the Big Guns- even pushing for a Champion's League spot!
