Darren Fletcher has suggested that West Bromwich Albion should not get carried away with their current form and may be better off avoiding looking at the Premier League table altogether, the Express and Star reports.
The Baggies had made a slow start to the campaign, winning just two of their opening 10 league games. However, since then, they have emerged as one of the surprises of the season so far.

After winning three of their last four, West Brom now sit seventh in the table and look to be improving with almost every performance.
Nevertheless, Fletcher has urged his teammates to keep their feet on the ground and stay focused on capitalising on the momentum they have built.

"It is pleasing when things are going well and you want to enjoy the moment," he said, as reported by the Express and Star.
"For us I always think it is about keeping level-headed throughout. We need to keep doing the things we are doing, and not look at the league table too early."
While the Albion are flying high, their season could seemingly unravel just as quickly as it initially turned around. Incredibly, they remain closer to the relegation zone than the top four so will know that a few poor results could take much of the shine off their recent run.

And while they have been impressive in their three recent victories, none of those wins have come against teams currently in the top-half of the table, so they will know that they face a different kind of challenge in the coming weeks with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal ahead in their next four fixtures.
But what will encourage Tony Pulis is how his side are dispatching the teams below them. And that should ensure that even if they slip down the table slightly, they should have enough quality to avoid falling too far.
