West Brom boss Tony Pulis shares who he wants to win the league title

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

West Bromwich Albion face Leicester City’s title rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Monday.

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis says he wants Leicester City to win the Premier League title this season as his side gear up for a trip to White Hart Lane, the Mirror reports.

Leicester and Tottenham Hotspur are the final two fighting it out for the title, with the Foxes leading the North London side by five points heading in to the final four matches of the season.

Claudio Ranieri’s men face Swansea City this weekend, while Spurs host Tony Pulis’s West Brom on Monday.

When quizzed on who he would prefer to win the title, Pulis gave his backing to Leicester but added that either of them winning goes against the grain and would be good for the Premier League.

“It is still Leicester for me. I would love to see them win it. I hope they go on to win it. If it wasn’t them, I would pick Tottenham,” Pulis told the Mirror.

“It is great for English football that there will be a different team picking up the title this year. It is really fantastic. Whether it is Leicester or Tottenham doesn’t matter.

“The great thing is this league has shown how competitive it is and that it is not just about two or three teams.”

It has been a truly remarkable Premier League campaign on the whole, filled with so many surprises such as Chelsea’s abysmal early-season form and Leicester’s stunning title tilt.

Either the Foxes or Spurs winning the title would be a unique feat in a league so often dominated by whichever team spends the most, and the duo have had the backing from the majority of the neutrals.

West Brom may have little to play for, yet their record against the North London club has not been too shabby over the years so there could be some twists and turns still to come.
