West Brom caretaker manager Gary Megson believes our recent matches against Real Madrid showed just what our players are capable of as he prepares to bring the Baggies to Wembley on Saturday.

Megson is in temporary charge of our opponents this weekend after they parted company with Head Coach Tony Pulis on Monday, following a disappointing start to the season that has seen them win just two of their opening 12 Premier League games.

Asked his thoughts on facing us, Megson said some of our players are 'the envy of most teams in the world’ and pointed to our 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu and subsequent 3-1 home win over Real in the Champions League as evidence of the players’ talents.

“We play against some real world-class players and world-class teams and it's getting stronger and stronger,” he said.

“Tottenham are one of them. I thought the two games they played against Real Madrid were fantastic.

“They've got a front three of Eriksen, Alli and Kane that are the envy of most teams in the world. They're terrific and in my view they're the best team to watch at the moment.

“We got a hiding last week against Chelsea. You would hope that there's a professional pride – and there will be – that (that) doesn't happen again.”
