The Baggies were easily beaten 2-0 at Arsenal on Thursday and are back in the capital just four days later for a clash with Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Pulis admitted he may have made mistakes in the preparation for a rare Thursday night outing for his outfit and conceded they deserved nothing from their Emirates Stadium defeat.

But now the Welshman wants to see more from his players at White Hart Lane as they look to play their part in an enthralling Premier League title race.

He said:

That was our most disappointing performance - Arsenal deserved to win because we looked flat. We didn't do very well on Thursday - we have to dust ourselves down and put a performance in on Monday.

White Hart Lane is one of my favourite grounds. It's a fantastic stadium with a great atmosphere. Everything to do with the club is first class. I enjoy taking teams there and we need to make sure we are up for it.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis insists he is in no rush to sign a new Baggies contract.

The head coach will speak about his future with chairman Jeremy Peace in the summer, when he will have just a year left on his current deal.

Pulis has guided Albion to 11th in the Premier League this season, 13 points clear of the relegation zone ahead of their trip to Manchester City on Saturday, and is happy to wait on his future.

At the end of the season I'll sit down with Jeremy and we'll talk, we'll talk about the season and talk about the future. That's what I have done for years.

Let me speak to Jeremy. The important thing is for us to finish the season as strongly as we can. I still have a year left, there's no rush in doing anything else. I would prefer to sit with Jeremy and have a nice glass of wine and a bite to eat.

Every club you go into you could say 'you'll like this to happen and everything else' but, as I have said before, it's a very well run club and I don't think there are many clubs in the country who are run as well as this, financially.

Owner Peace and Pulis have a good working relationship and any talks will be transparent with both knowing where they stand.

Former Stoke and Crystal Palace boss Pulis is known to want to make significant changes to the squad after failing to land several targets over the last few transfer windows.
