W Brom vs Stoke
1:30pm Sunday 27th August
WEST BROM 1-1 STOKE
FT: That's it! Dire for an hour, but goals from Jay Rodriguez and Peter Crouch means this ends one each. Baggies will be unhappy with that, considering the mix-up at the back with Hegazi and Foster.
Highlights in 15 minutes...
90+4: McClean takes a cross early on the left, Rondon also takes it early on the volley, in an awkward position, and he can't quite sort his feet out. Out for a throw eventually.
90+2: Sobhi gets down the right, his cross is cleared to Fletcher, but the midfielder's half volley is blocked.
90+1: Four added minutes for someone to find a winner.
89: Final Albion change. Here comes Oliver Burke for his debut, as goalscorer Jay Rodriguez is replaced.
87: CHANCE! Stoke nearly ahead! Shaqiri's delightful ball falls to Choupo-Moting at the far post, and his effort is deflected just wide!
Jay Rodriguez heads away Shaqiri's corner, and West Brom eventually clear danger.
86: Zouma lets fly from miles out, looking to cut across it and move it from left to right, but it's a couple yards wide of Foster's right-hand post.
85: Rondon goes in heavy on Fletcher, who is in a heap on the floor. Very clumsy, and a deserved yellow.
84: Allen makes a good run inside the box at an acute angle, he's found by Shaqiri, but his cross-shot his beaten away by Foster.
At the other end, a fine ball from Brunt meets Rondon, but he can't get over it and heads well wide.
83: Barry with a dink over the defence looking for Rondon, but Shawcross superbly heads back into Butland's hands.
81: Dawson uses his body well to usher Crouch out of the way. It looks like Stoke might be going for the three points...
79: Who goes for the victory now then? Stoke have done very little and are lucky to be level, but then again Albion haven't exactly wooed us.
GOAL! WEST BROM 1-1 STOKE (Crouch 77)
Wow. West Brom have absolutely gifted Stoke an equaliser here, and it's a howler from Hegazi.
Sobhi sticks a nothing ball into the box with the outside of his boot, Foster rushes out and makes the call to collect ahead of his team-mate Hegazi, but the defender sticks a leg out, and it deflects into the path of Crouch to head into an empty net.
Bizarre goal, and Foster is absolutely furious. Tony Pulis will be too.
WEST BROM 1-0 STOKE
75: Another Baggies change. McClean is on, Phillips makes way.
73: Butland races out to collect a long ball, but it slips out of his hands and he concedes a corner. Uncharacteristic from the England goalkeeper.
OFF THE BAR! From a corner, the ball loops up to Rodriguez at the far post, and his own looping header hits the top of the crossbar. Butland had it covered, however.
71: Changes here. Morrison is replaced by Yacob for Albion; Cameron is off for Sobhi for Stoke.
69: Lovely play by Barry to calm the midfield and bring the ball out under pressure, but he then needlessly pokes it out of play.
67: Stoke play around with it on the edge of the box, Choupo-Moting has a go, but Dawson blocks it. West Brom break and have men over, Livermore finds Rondon, but he's a few yards offside!
65: SAVE! Free-kick to Albion, around 40 yards from goal. Great ball in from Phillips, Hegazi attacks it well, but Butland tips it over the bar!
Stoke are 16/1 to win this from behind with Sky Bet with the draw a 7/2 shot. Rodriguez is the subject of an in-play Price Boost - he's 7/1 from 6/1 to score again.

63: Change for Stoke... Crouch is on, Jese comes off. West Brom will guard this with their lives now, and Hughes wants to put some height in the box.
GOAL! WEST BROM 1-0 STOKE (Rodriguez 61)
Finally, a chance, and a goal! Nyom, who has been superb, is deep on the right and puts in a lovely cross... it bounces once, finds Rodriguez free at the far post, and he heads it past Butland!
That's his first Premier League goal for the Albion since his move from Southampton.
WEST BROM 0-0 STOKE
59: Barry cuts out a Stoke attack just as Choupo-Moting pounced upon a ball given away by Livermore. Barry has had a fine game so far.
57: West Brom fans are urging their team to push forward and make something happen.
55: The first half is very much like the first. Both defences on top at present... will one of these managers turn to their bench before long?
52: Boos ring around the Hawthorns...that's because Saido Berahino is warming up for Stoke. The former Baggies man isn't popular here.
50: Corner to Albion. Phillips delivers, but Pieters clears. It's back out to Phillips, but he's offside.
48: Rodriguez, playing off the left, cuts inside and looks to get into the area, but he's crowded out by three Stoke shirts.
46: Back underway at the Hawthorns...
Oliver Burke was out training at half-time with his new team mates. Will we see him in the second half? This game needs an injection of pace.
Allan Nyom hasn't been happy at times in that first half and he's a 9/2 Price Boost (from 7/2) to be carded in the second half.
0-0 is now just a 5/2 chance with 1-0 West Brom - their result in each of two games so far this season - now at 4/1.
HT: That's the half. Really not one to write home about, so far, with both defences firmly on top. Nyom has been excellent for Albion, but nothing happening in the final third for either side.
45+1: One minute added on.
44: Phillips takes, right-footed to the near post this time, but Pieters clears. Stoke break, three on three... Shaqiri feeds Jese, but he slips and hits it wide from an acute angle. Good defending from Nyom.
Moments before there was a penalty call as the ball hit Brunt on the arm from a deflected shot, but it would have been harsh.
42: Decent ball in from Brunt, it misses Rondon but falls to Phillips at the far post, he sticks it back in first time, but Shawcross clears for a corner.
40: Stoke are knocking it about in midfield, but West Brom are so, so organised. It's quiet at the Hawthorns, and you can hear Craig Dawson shouting to bring his defence up and down the pitch as Stoke penetrate.
38: West Brom free-kick on the right. Brunt with another deep one, Dawson clatters into Butland and he fumbles it again. Foul this time, however.
37: Dawson does well to win a corner with a turn in the box. Brunt delivers to the back post again, Butland fumbles it slightly, but Stoke get it away.
35: Stoke break, the first real opportunity for either side to counter attack. Jese collects it in space from Fletcher's switch, he runs at Nyom, and he gets a bit of help from Morrison before ushering out the Spaniard. Good defending.
33: Nyom looks to turn the ball around the corner past Pieters, the Stoke man flies in and catches him, and that's the first booking of the game.
31: Nyon sticks out an arm as Jese approaches, Jese goes down like a sack of spuds and Stoke players surround the referee. Foul given, nothing more. And rightly so.
29: Martins Indi with a ball in from the left, Choupo-Moting rises, but he glances it well wide.
26: Bizarre, bizarre situation here...
Just as Shaqiri runs up to take the corner, ref Anthony Taylor (with his eyes on the penalty area, not on Shaqiri) blows his whistle to signal that the corner can be taken.
However, all the players in the box think Taylor has blown for an infringement. Cameron doesn't even attempt to go for the ball, nor do any of the other players, and it goes out for a goal kick to West Brom. Bemusement all around!
A case of bad timing for Taylor, and Shaqiri being a tad too keen to take the corner before the whistle was blown.
Pretty even so far and so no surprise to see the draw shorten to 7/4. West Brom to win and under 2.5 goals in the match is a Price Boost which could tempt some after this start - that's 3/1 from 11/4.
25: SAVE! First opportunity of the game... Zouma piles forward, has a go with his left foot, it deflects off Barry but Foster dives to stop it looping over him!
23: Really nice from Barry again, straight into Rondon's feet, but he can't hold it up this time as Stoke recover.
Choupo-Moting's protestations were in vain - ref Anthony Taylor shrugged off his tumble over Chris Brunt's boot. Might have had a card for making a meal of it, himself, the Stoke man...
20: Lovely from Barry, pinging a 50-yarder to the feet of Phillips. Unfortunately, the winger can't get a decent ball in and it hits the side-netting.
18: Ball into the box by Nyom... it looks quite dangerous, but Butland rushes out well to collect as Rondon fails to wrestle away his marker Shawcross.
16: Stoke have had more of the ball, 67 per cent, but it's been fairly even in terms of action in both halves so far.
