West Brom’s 1-0 victory against Manchester United doesn’t impact the club’s goal of reaching 40 points, head coach Tony Pulis stated.
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis remains focused on reaching the 40-point mark immediately after his side beating Manchester United 1-0 at the Hawthorns on Sunday.
Salomon Rondon scored the only aim on the game, right after Juan Mata was sent off, to give West Brom a third victory in 4 Premier League matches, the club rising to 11th within the table because of this.
But Pulis said the club’s objective continues to be to reach 40 points as he deems that figure to become adequate for survival, with West Brom only 1 shy of that target with nine games remaining.
“Let’s get to 40 after which take it from there,” he stated.
“It’s pretty challenging managing teams inside the reduced half in the Premier League, it truly is definitely, actually tough work mentally and physically.
“You take it on board and you worry about every single outcome, your personal and everybody else. It could drive you insane at times.
“This is specifically the identical because the other clubs I’ve managed. You never quit worrying, you never ever stop considering that points could turn. You have to retain driving persons on and it’s lovely to have people like [Darren] Fletcher in the group.
“Fletcher is old school and there are not several players left like Darren. He’s got that drive, he’s got that fire in his belly that maybe has been dampened out of his generation.”
Pulis was full of praise for Rondon and Saido Berahino, who continue to look a threatening strike partnership.
“The testament to Salomon is the fact that he just never stops,” said Pulis.
“He’s such a great lad and he took his purpose with aplomb, excellent finish and we’re quite quite pleased for him because he is such an excellent lad.
“They’re a superb group. We’ve got Saido and Salomon together and we’ve looked far better going forward, we’ve looked extra of a threat.
“The beginning of the season we had been hoping to begin with these two along with the two of them would have scored sufficient ambitions to make us a decent group. However, we have not had Saido for that time.
“But considering that they’ve got together, the team has gelled a lot better, specially going forward.”
