The referee brings an entertaining game to a close then, and both sides must settle for a 0-0 draw. It could have been much more for both with Stephane Sessegnon particularly impressive, while Stephen Ireland could've scored for the home side.
Sessegnon does brilliantly and nearly finds the winner for West Brom, but Begovic makes himself big and saves excellently.
West Brom still pressing forward in search of a winner, as Mulumbu's curling effort drifts just wide.
Arnautovic goes so close for Stoke from Ireland's cross after an excellent break from the home side.
Wilson's first action is to head out for a corner, from which Begovic is fortunate to escape unscathed after coming to claim but missing the ball.
Ambitious effort from Adam but so close. From his own half he attempts to lob Myhill, but the keeper gets back just in time to tip it over.
Stoke are beginning to take control now, but they desperately need a goal to avoid more late heart-ache.
West Brom make a couple of changes of their own, with Anelka and Morrison replacing Berahino and Amalfitano.
Penalty shout for the visitors. Mulumbu breaks into the area and is felled by Adam, who appeared to step on his heel.
Mulumbu and Yacob combine to great effect to escape the pressing game of Stoke, giving Sessegnon the space to pick out Ridgewell, who's cross is easily caught.
Ireland plucks the ball excellently from the sky and sends a through ball in for Walters, but it's a touch too long. Agonising for Stoke.
Stoke kick us off for the second-half then, as both sides will look to build on promising opening periods.
Great, even first half from both sides then, and they've both had chances. Sessegnon and Arnautovic look bright as creative sparks for their respective sides, while Stoke will be thanking Begovic for a clean sheet in the first 45.
Excellent passing football from Stoke as they look for an opening, and they earn a free-kick on the edge of the area after Ridgewell's late challenge on Assaidi.
Great chance for the home side. A very clever free-kick tricks the Baggies back-line and Ireland's low effort is well-saved. Best chance for Stoke so far.
The game is gradually starting to open up for both sides here, but only West Brom have worked a clear-cut chance. Stoke still looking good on the ball.
Excellent composure from Pieters to bamboozle Anichebe and lose his man, playing Stoke out of a potential spot of bother. Good, even game so far.
Anichebe tracks back excellently to retrieve the ball before laying off to Sessegnon. He keeps his cool to lay it off to Amalfitano, but Begovic is out so quickly.
Stoke in the ascendancy now, with Arnautovic looking particularly impressive. Nzonzi header comfortably saved.
Sessegnon breaks clear again in the area after great work from the two front-men, but Begovic gets down well to save.
Arnautovic and Wilkinson combine effectively down the right to create an opening, but the latter's cross is headed away.
Snapshot effort from Sessegnon is driven over and wide, but promising stuff from that visitors so far.
Excellent incisive run from Sessegnon as he breaks into the Stoke box, good tackle form Nzonzi though to concede a corner.
'Ex-Potter Edd Irwin here from Durban,South Africa. Stoke have to get something out of this game to satisfy the supporters. Lack of goal scoring is a big problem at the moment. I am going for a 1-1 draw as West Brom have been doing well. (But I'll take a win if it happens).'
Wilkinson, Adam and Assaidi are in for Stoke then, while Anichebe replaces Anelka in the Baggies starting XI.
Stoke start as 13/8 favourites but their lack of goals is a concern. They have failed to score in three of their last four games.Marko Arnautovic is 7/1 joint favourite alongside Kenwyne Jones to end the drought by scoring the opening goal.The Baggies are an 11/5 shot with the draw available at 9/4.Full odds: http://www.skybet.com/football/premier-league/event/15752044

It's certainly a story of contrasting forms this afternoon, with Stoke, winless in four, facing a West Brom side who have avoided defeat in the same number of games.
