Claude Puel wants his side to maintain the intensity of their display against Crystal Palace this weekend when they meet West Brom.

Puel’s men delivered a superb display, creating a number of opportunities before Maya Yoshida and James Ward-Prowse struck late to secure the points.

And with three wins in the last five Premier League games, the Saints boss is hoping for more of the same against a difficult outfit.

“Is it the best moment of the season? I don’t know because we have played some different good games against strong teams.

“With a match every two weeks, it was difficult to keep a good intensity and rhythm.

“We saw this against AFC Bournemouth but against Crystal Palace, we showed good quality and a good spirit but the intensity of our play was good.

“It’s important to keep this but it’s difficult to see the future. Every game is very difficult, with great opponents and physical play.

“We will see this against West Brom because it’s a strong team with good organisation, discipline and structure.

“It’s always difficult to play against this side and we know this from the first game we played against them.”
