Roy Hodgson insists West Brom still have to be wary of being dragged into a Barclays Premier League relegation dog-fight.
The Baggies are in 11th spot and six points above the bottom three with five games left despite Saturday's 3-1 setback against Chelsea.
It was their first defeat under Hodgson in seven games but the head coach is still taking nothing for granted ahead of Saturday's trip to Tottenham.
"We have to keep looking over our shoulders," said Hodgson. "I don't think anyone from Newcastle or Aston Villa downwards will be doing anything other than looking over their shoulders.
"It's been so tight up to now and I expect it to be from now until the end of the season.
"There will be setbacks for us all, I guess."
