Steve Clarke insists that it is too early to start looking at the Premier League table.

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has insisted that the Premier League table does not yet mean anything just three games into the season.

Clarke said that his only worry is where West Brom end up in May, but admitted that he wants his side to begin picking up points this Saturday against Fulham.

"Are we bottom? I didn't know," Sky Sports News quotes Clarke as saying. "I don't look at the table at this stage. It doesn't matter.

"After three games it is too quick to be looking. There's a league table shown after one game. Why? It's what happens at the end, not where we are in September.

"The quicker you win, the better. But there's no guarantees in the Premier League. It's a tough league. You have to earn every point you get and we have to start earning points this Saturday."

West Brom's only point so far came at Goodison Park on August 24.
