The West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has said that his only focus this season will be to help West Brom still in the Premier league. His comments are little bit surprising given that they come at a time when West Brom are currently are challenging for the top four positions.

The club appointed the former Liverpool and Chelsea assistant manager Steve Clarke as the replacement for Roy Hodgson in the summer. He has had a great start to his best career after guiding the team to the fourth position in the Premier league table ahead of the visit by the European champions.

Despite this good start, Ben Foster has said that he has not changed the focus yet because the ultimate aim will be to get to the magical 40 point mark that will almost ensure Premier league safety. Two goals from Peter Odemwingie helped West Brom secure another 2-0 win in the Premier league last weekend. They have a very good record at home having been beaten only once in the Premier league this season. Ben Foster has said that it is easy to get carried away by the good start, and hence, he wants to maintain the focus on the main objective – avoiding relegation.

"It's a bit of a cliche but we are really not getting carried away and we are taking each game as it comes, and we will see where we go. We will get to the 40-point mark as soon as possible we and see what games we have got left. Fantastic credit to bounce back after two difficult weeks. We spoke before the game about making sure we get our season back on track tonight," said Foster ahead of the Chelsea match. West Brom have 20 points from the opening 11 matches of the season.
