Ben Foster: Conceded four goals against Tottenham

West Brom keeper Ben Foster thinks Tottenham are the best Premier League side they have played this campaign.

Harry Kane scored a hat-trick as Spurs tore the Baggies apart in a 4-0 victory on Saturday which moved Mauricio Pochettino’s side up to second ahead of Sunday’s matches.

Foster admits that West Brom struggled to get into the match but also credited Tottenham for their performance.

“In all fairness that’s probably the best team I have played against,” he told West Brom’s website.

“Fair play to them, it’s just one we will have to move on from. We went three at the back to try and get back into the game but sadly we couldn’t get going.

“We have to lick our wounds and forget about it as quickly as possible. Everyone has their ups and downs.

“We need to get over this one and move on to next weekend’s game against Sunderland.”
