West Bromwich Albion have surprised everyone with their resurgence in the recent weeks, but it has come too late in the season.
The Baggies face Tottenham at the Hawthorns on Saturday, and even a win might not be enough to save them on Saturday.
After struggling for most of the season, the Baggies have looked like a totally different side in recent weeks under new boss Darren Moore. West Brom are undefeated in their last four games, and this run includes a win at Manchester United and a home draw against Liverpool.
Last weekend, they claimed a 1-0 win at Newcastle United. However, the Baggies still sit rock-bottom in the league table, and they are five points adrift of safety. In all likelihood, the Baggies will play next season in the Championship, but last few weeks have demonstrated that they still belong in Premier League.
Tottenham come into this game following a 2-0 home win over Watford. Spurs have Chelsea on their tails in the top-four race and any slip could prove costly at this point of the season. As things stand, Spurs sit in the fourth spot with 71 points, and thus, have a five-point advantage on Chelsea.
Top-four rivals Chelsea and Liverpool play each other on Sunday, and thus, Spurs could move into the top-three with a win on Saturday.
Earlier this season, the Baggies claimed an unlikely 1-1 draw against their opponents in the reverse fixture at Wembley Stadium.
