Evans gets the winner

West Brom 2-1 Stoke

What a thrilling final 25 minutes. Three goals and a sending off and a deserved win for West Brom, thanks to Jonny Evans' late, late winner.

Thanks for your company. Follow all the reaction to today's games here.

FULL-TIME - West Brom 2-1 Stoke

YELLOW CARD

West Brom 2-1 Stoke

Chaos. We have two balls on the pitch as play restarts with a dropped ball...Rickie Lambert hoofts it away.

West Brom 2-1 Stoke

The final additional minute being played... surely there is no coming back from this?

GOAL - West Brom 2-1 Stoke (Jonny Evans)

And it leads to what's surely the winner! Played short initially and after it comes in, a spot of pin-ball in the six-yard box before Jonny Evans taps in his first goal for West Brom from two yards.

Corner to West Brom...

Craig Gardner with half-chance for West Brom but he shoots straight at Jack Butland.

INJURY TIME

West Brom 1-1 Stoke

Five added minutes to find a winner...

West Brom 1-1 Stoke

West Brom must be wondering how they're in this position. Just before the equaliser, Rickie Lambert miscontrolled when he would have been clean through and could have made it 2-0.

However, can they now take advantage of playing against 10 men?

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 1-1 Stoke

Changes for both teams. Saido Berahino is on for West Brom in place of Claudio Yacob, Charlie Adam comes on for Stoke, replacing Xherdan Shaqiri.

RED CARD - Geoff Cameron (Stoke)

West Brom 1-1 Stoke

No sooner are they level, Stoke are down to 10 men as Geoff Cameron is sent off for striking Claudio Yacob after a tackle between the two.

They had two men dismissed in this fixture in August. Totally needless.

GOAL - West Brom 1-1 Stoke (Jonathan Walters)

Out of absolutely nowhere, Stoke are level. Joselu sends over a peach of a cross from the left with the outside of his right foot and Jonathan Walters heads the equaliser.

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

A chance for James Morrison but his shot is straight at Stoke keeper Jack Butland.

West Brom look more likely to extend their lead than Stoke to equalise. They have done virtually nothing in the second half.

YELLOW CARD

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

One of the most needless yellow cards you'll ever see. Stoke's Marko Arnautovic is repeatedly told to move away from a West Brom free-kick on halfway but continues to argue with referee Lee Mason. He just won't let it go and do as he's told.

The resulting yellow card is inevitable and well deserved. Ridiculous.

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

Goalscorer Stephane Sessegnon goes marauding down the left but Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross finally stops him.

Stoke then launch a rare attack but the ball is too hard for Jonathan Walters and runs out for a goal kick.

Sums up their play at the moment.

'Terrific finish'

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

Chris Sutton

Former Chelsea & Norwich striker on Final Score

"It was a terrific finish from Stephane Sessegnon. He just elected to go for power and it flew into the back of the net. Stoke will do well to get back in this."  

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

Finally a corner from Stoke and it's a good delivery to the far post. Joselu gets up high and heads down but can't find a team-mate.

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

Stoke not giving Boaz Myhill much to do so Jonathan Walters is on now, replacing Glenn Whelan.

Mark Hughes
PA

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

Not much of a response from Stoke so far. Tony Pulis has never lost when managing in this fixture. That record looks like being extended.

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 1-0 Stoke

The first change. Bojan has had a quiet afternoon and is replaced by Joselu, who scored his first goal for Stoke against Everton on Monday.

GOAL - West Brom 1-0 Stoke (Stephane Sessegnon)

Maybe Saido Berahino will have to sit down again. Darren Fletcher wins the ball, finds James Morrison and he plays in Stephane Sessegnon 12 yards out, right of the penalty area, and he smashes it past Jack Butland.

A good move. A great finish.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Saido Berahino is off the bench and warming up. It could soon be time for the West Brom striker, as Craig Gardner skies a first-time shot from the edge of the box for the home team.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

The Stoke attack is all coming down the right so far in the second half, and it was the source of Xherdan Shaqiri's chance.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

That's better. A neat triangle between Glen Johnson, Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri but the Swiss' shot rolls tamely straight to Boaz Myhill.

He should have done more with that.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Five minutes played of the second half and no improvement so far. The ball pinging between the sides with no structure and little skill. 

Both teams keep going down cul-de-sacs. The fans do their best to encourage an improvement but they are feeding off scraps.

Second half under way

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Bojan and Ibrahim Afellay get the second half under way for Stoke. No changes from either side.

Come on, lads. Let's have something to get excited about.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Stoke have enjoyed the better of the possession, and had seven shots to West Brom's five, but they have looked subdued so far. Glen Johnson had their best effort, which was pushed away by Boaz Myhill.

Latest scores

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Not much happening elsewhere in the Premier League either. West Ham beat Liverpool 2-0 in the early game but Sunderland are the only side to find the net so far in the 3pm kick-offs.

They are playing Aston Villa.

Is everyone sluggish from too much turkey?

HALF-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

It started off well enough but, Darren Fletcher's miss aside, there was not a lot to report in the final 20 minutes of the first half.

West Brom had the better openings but little in it in truth.

INJURY TIME

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

One minute of added time...

Craig Dawson
PA

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

The best opening so far and it falls to West Brom captain Darren Fletcher, right of the penalty area, 12 yards out.

He has time and space but slices it wide, off the outside of his right boot.

A bad miss. I can't even headline that 'close' because it was well off target.

Claudio Yacob
PA

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

It's all very quiet and subdued at The Hawthorns, on and off the pitch. Craig Gardner looks for the run of Rickie Lambert but the ball skips off the slick pitch into Jack Butland's arms.

That's about as exciting as it gets at the moment.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

An unusual one. A slight delay as Ryan Shawcross's captain's armband has split and won't stay on his body. He has to wear one, but referee Lee Mason allows him to stay on the pitch before a new one is supplied.

On the pitch Stoke have four corners in quick succession but can't make them count. 

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

No they can't. Chris Brunt's delivery doesn't get past the near post and is easily cleared.

Ryan Shawcross
Reuters

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Not much doing at the moment, neat passing but neither side threatening to open the scoring.

Hang on, Erik Pieters concedes a corner to West Brom. Can they make anything of it?

Stoke 0-0 West Brom

Marko Arnautovic has sight of goal but his shot from the right of the penalty area lacks oomph and is easily smothered by Boaz Myhill. 

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Stoke spread the play from left to right and back again but West Brom, who kept a league-high 17 clean sheets in 2015, look secure and Mark Hughes' men are unable to get closer than 20 yards from goal.

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

While West Brom's attack is fairly balanced, Stoke favoured the left-hand side in the opening 20 minutes within 43.2% of their attacks coming from that side.

However, Bojan, Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri have been kept fairly quiet so far.

CLOSE!

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Glen Johnson cuts in from the right and puts his laces though one with his left foot and Boaz Myhill has to stretch to make the save with Marko Arnautovic ducking in front of him.

CLOSE!

West Brom 0-0 Stoke

Excellent start from West Brom and Jonny Evans is in the thick of the action again, stretching to turn in Gareth McAuley's flick-on at the far post three yards out but he can't quite get enough on it.
