Finally, and perhaps most interestingly, is the fact that there are few sides in the English Premier League who possess the current form and consistency that West Brom have.
In fact, you could nearly go as far as to suggest that every other side in the Premier League is vulnerable compared to the Baggies—starting with the teams on top of the ladder.
Manchester City might be undefeated, but they simply cannot play well away from home this year. The same could also be said for Manchester United, who are simply conceding too many goals in defense to be able to mount any serious pressure on their opponents.
Chelsea just lost to West Brom and haven't won a Premier League match in over a month; the same goes for Tottenham, who have lost four of their last five fixtures.
Arsenal are inconsistent in attack and have dropped points to the likes of Stoke City, Sunderland, Norwich City and Fulham this season.
Everton—for all their attacking power—have only managed one win in their last six Premier League matches, and even then, they had to come from behind against Sunderland despite the fact they were playing at Goodison Park.
West Ham haven't won against a team inside the top eight this year. Fulham's only win since September was a late 1-0 win against lowly Aston Villa. Swansea City have shown this year that they are more inconsistent and temperamental than Mario Balotelli.
Every other team isn't even in the top half of the table.
I'm not saying that West Brom are problem-free and that they're going to win the Premier League by 40 points. What I am saying is that every other team in the league is looking vulnerable right now, and the Baggies have a great chance to build on their current start, capitalize on those vulnerabilities and solidify their place in the top four.
Which, I believe, was 150-1 at the start of the year.
Kudos to whoever picked that.
Can West Brom really finish inside the top four this season?
