The Baggies picked up their fourth successive victory in the top flight for the first time since 1980 following their 4-2 win at Sunderland.

And Clarke believes their third position in the table, with just the Manchester sides above them, is fully justified.

"It's certainly not been a lucky start," said Clarke.

"We've earned every point we've got. You could even say we've been unlucky not to get more points in some games.

"It's been a solid start and we've deserved everything we've got.

"We're third and we deserve to be there. But we won't get carried away. We don't think that, because we're up there, we're big-time Charlies.

"We'll stay grounded and just keep working. But as I've said to the players, it could be a good season for us."

W

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
