West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster is convinced by the quality of this season's squad.
Foster reckons Tony Pulis now has the best group of players since Steve Clarke guided the team to their highest ever finish in the Premier League five seasons ago.
“There's a lot more strength in depth than what we've been used to," he told the Express & Star. “Before the game on Saturday we lined up in two XIs, just doing a bit of team shape for the game. Either of the two XIs could take to the field on a matchday.
"It's probably the first time it's been like that since Steve Clarke was manager, when we had Romelu (Lukaku) in the team, and we got off to that amazing start. I think we were fourth just before Christmas.
“That's the last time I can remember it being such a strong squad in terms of depth."
