Steve Clarke: West Brom wants his players not to get carried away
West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has urged his players not to get carried away despite their impressive start to the 2012/13 Premier League season.
The Baggies are currently third in the league table with seven points from three matches, just two points behind leaders Chelsea.
This has been West Brom's best start to the English top flight for 34 years, but Clarke wants everyone at the club to keep their feet firmly on the ground.
"I think everybody is pleased with the start," he told the club's official website.
"What's good, though, is that even though the players are pleased with the start, nobody is getting carried away.
"We understand there are many tough games to come. We're just focused on the next game and trying to get a positive result down at Craven Cottage.
"The good thing about it here is that it's a good experienced squad. All the experienced players understand how difficult the Premier League is.
"Their feet are firmly on the ground."
West Brom are away at Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.
