West Brom 2-3 Everton

A slow start, but an epic second-half. Monday night has ended with a bang.

Guess what? Champions League tomorrow. See you there...

West Brom 2-3 Everton

West Brom defender Craig Dawson: "We build ourselves on clean sheets and to be two goals up and lose the game is very disappointing. We know Everton are a top team but we have to pull our socks up and learn from our mistakes.

"To concede straight after scoring is disappointing and we have to learn from it."

It seems the problem is that Jonny Evans is a number six, not a number five.

Those were Tony Pulis's words when discussing his patched-up back four.

West Brom 2-3 Everton

Tony Pulis says that defender Jonas Olsson has a groin injury which is not looking good. He's not a happy man.

Goals, goals, goals

There were 41 goals scored this weekend, the most in a Premier League weekend since 22-23 March 2014.

There were 42 that weekend - fuelled by Liverpool winning 6-3 at Cardiff...

'The first Everton goal kills us'

West Brom 2-3 Everton

West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "The first goal kills us. We should deal with it. Losing Gareth McAuley and Jonas Olsson to injury hasn't helped us any, playing against Romelu Lukaku. 

"The other two goals are poor goals - the second one looks offside, the linesman is looking the wrong side. It's a poor decision.

"Really, really disappointing because before we scored the second goal we had some good chances.

"We switched off and Everton will punish you."

Defeat leaves West Brom in 15th place in the Premier League table. Though they are level on points with Chelsea - which they would have taken before the start of the season...

More from Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "To be able to break West Brom down you have to put a lot of things together.

"The Merseyside derby is an incredible football occasion and we are ready for a special Goodison Park atmosphere.

"John Stones and Seamus Coleman both wanted to play tonight, they are very close and I am positive that we will have two or three players back for the weekend."

Stat attack

West Brom 2-3 Everton

Tony Pulis has lost a Premier League game from a leading position of 2+ goals for the first time.

Everton scored with three of their four shots on target, all four of which came in the second half.

There was only one minute and 24 seconds between WBA’s second goal and Everton’s first.

'Extra emotional for us'

West Brom 2-3 Everton

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "We were very disappointed with the first half. We were off, every single individual.

"The mountain we had to climb, it would have been easy to lose focus but we got three goals against the best defensive structure in the Premier League.

"Every three points is huge but it feels extra good. Gerard Deulofeu took extra responsibility, he wanted the ball all night and it was a real mature performance.

"The last game before the players go away always feels like a bit of a final and it's the derby so it's extra emotional for us."

'There's always a way back'

West Brom 2-3 Everton

Everton skipper Phil Jagielka: "At 2-0 down there's always a way back, it was disastrous for us but we got back into it straight away. It could have gone either way but we are delighted.

"The defence didn't have many Premier League games between them but this was a game for them to learn their trade!"

'We knew we could win it'

West Brom 2-3 Everton

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku: "The first half was not too good, and at half-time the manager woke us up. The experienced players spoke up! One goal was always going to bring us back into the game and at the end we won the game.

"I knew the first goal was crucial. I knew that we could win the game."

Decision making? Poor.

Ross Barkley leads a counter-attack for Everton, James McCarthy has his own postcode of space on the right but blinkered Barkley ends up having a shot which is easily charged down.

Look up!

I couldn't wait for the first half to end, now I don't want this to finish. End-to-end. If West Brom get a corner you'd fancy them to score!

So close! Just as I read that somewhere, someone has got a £45k accumulator riding on an Everton win Rickie Lambert screws a shot inches wide for West Brom!

West Brom 2-3 Everton

A sensational comeback. Two goals and an assist for Romelu Lukaku. We said they had to get him in the game more and they certainly have done. West Brom's defending has not been clever. But what a second half.

Can Albion fight back? Rickie Lambert is on.

GOAL - West Brom 2-3 Everton

Romelu Lukaku

Isn't football brilliant?! Who saw this coming!

Gerard Deulofeu makes it again with a great cross in, Romelu Lukaku is a human wrecking ball in the box, he beats two defenders to the cross, gets a bit of luck when the ball ricochets off his hand, and Lukaku is able to turn and fire in from two yards out.

A mess for Albion. A beautiful mess for Everton.

West Brom 2-2 Everton

West Brom's gameplan is now based on hitting Saido Berahino over the top but Phil Jagielka is wise to it.

West Brom 2-2 Everton

What a fine second-half this has been. A stinker for the first 45, a blinder since.

Everton's noisy fans believe they can win it, and maybe the players do too. Gerard Deulofeu - the wildcard - keeps on running at his man but again takes it too far. 

West Brom 2-2 Everton

Everton have only come from two goals behind to win in the Premier League once before - and it was a key game against Wimbledon in 1994.

What do you mean, 'Hans Segers'?

GOAL - West Brom 2-2 Everton

Arouna Kone

Everton are back in business! This is why Romelu Lukaku is a £30m striker. He makes things happen. Back to goal, ball to feet, he turns, wrestles a man off the ball, moves the ball on to his left foot and then slides a perfect pass through toArouna Kone. 

He's just onside, takes his time, lots of it, and fires past Boaz Myhill from seven yards out. Away end goes nuts as the striker reveals a happy birthday message on hi T-shirt.

What a tackle! It looked for all the world to be a chance for Saido Berahino but Brendan Galloway made up some serious turf to fly in and win it from him. Superb from the Everton man.

Can they find more heroics at the other end to level this one up?

West Brom bring off big-money man Salomon Rondon and on comes midfielder Craig Gardner. Foot like a traction engine.

That should see Saido Berahino pushed up top. Mark Sampson will be happy.

That's now 12 goals at the Hawthorns for Romelu Lukaku, only at Goodison Park (15) has he scored more in his career.

Lest we forget - he is somehow still only 22!
