Pulis targets Europe and cup finals

West Brom boss Tony Pulis insists his side can qualify for European competition this season.

The Baggies are 12th in the Premier League following a 2-1 win over Stoke last weekend, leaving Pulis’ side just three just points behind the 10th-placed Potters.

The 57-year-old believes his side can break into the league’s top 10, and has also urged his team to make an impact in this season’s domestic cups.

“I think the club is a top ten club,” he said. “A top ten club that can go to cup finals.

“Europe is not out of bounds. The club is as good as any other club if you take out the seven that spend an absolute fortune on their wage bills.”

On-loan midfielder Serge Gnabry is expected to return to Arsenal after managing only 12 minutes of Premier League football this season, and Pulis says the German is not at the required ‘level’ to play regularly for Albion.

“He was very unfortunate because he came here injured and I think people forget that. He wants to play week in week out. It’s very difficult to guarantee that.

“Serge has come here to play games but he just hasn’t been for me, at the moment, at that level to play the games.”
