The Baggies sit in such a comfortable position thanks to a surprise 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday afternoon. And it was a victory Tony Pulis admits saw West Brom play far from their best. But there was no denying their work-rate.
Santi Cazorla applied the finishing touch by missing a late penalty that could have handed Arsenal a point - but the majority of the hard work was done by a West Brom side ready to give their all.
James McClean certainly did just that. The controversial 26-year-old divides opinion and his recent antics against Sunderland summed up what a fiery character he is. The West Brom faithful, though, appear to be big fans. They were big fans on Saturday at the very least, as McClean delivered a man-of-the-match display against the Gunners.
Several impressed: Boaz Myhill, James Morrison, Claudio Yacob and more. McClean, though, very much stood out. Here's how West Brom fans reacted on Twitter to his performance against Arsenal on Saturday:

McClean, Morrison, Myhill all brilliant today, with quite a few also playing well #WBA— Ben Cotterill (@BenCotty) November 21, 2015
Thought everyone played well but Evans, Olsson, Yacob and McClean the standouts #wba— Ashley Burtoft (@AshBurty) November 21, 2015
