    That's all from me today but you can follow all the reaction on our main football live text here.

    Thanks for joining me!


    Stoke 3-1 West Brom

    Well, West Brom pushed everyone forward and it meant there was acres of space for Stoke to counter-attack.

    Ramadan made the most of it and that goal means he is now the youngest ever goal-scorer for Stoke in the Premier League.

    Fine achievement.

    It's all over now too.

  3. GOAL

    Stoke 3-1 West Brom


    Ramadan Sobhi!

  4. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    I don't even know what just happened.

    From a corner kick, Evans' header bounces back off the chest of Jack Butland, into Rondon and almost back into the net.

    That came just seconds after a goalline scramble.

    This is desperately close!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    That would have wrapped it up for Stoke.

    Substitute Mame Biram Diouf gets on the end of a cross and heads it into the ground a little too much.

    Ben Foster snatches it up!

  6. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    It's getting tense for both teams now.

    Stoke continue to defend with desperation and are looking to draw fouls at all opportunities.

    West Brom, for all their possession in this second-half, have not truly tested Jack Butland.


    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Keiran Gibbs is off and Oliver Burke is on.

    Attacking substitution for West Brom...


    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    And that proved to be Shaqiri's last involvement as he's replaced by Ramadan Sobhi.

  9. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    What a save!

    Shaqiri's freekick drifts into the box and it's Ryan Shawcross who gets his head on it. It's a superb one too and it forces an excellent save out of Ben Foster.

    The offside flag is up though...

  10. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    So, so close for Rodriguez!

    Gareth Barry clips a delightful ball into the box and Butland has to be super quick off his line to snuff it out from under Rodriguez' feet.

    That ball from Barry was superb!

  11. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    A rare second-half attack from Stoke.

    Choupo-Moting carries the ball forward and he feels he is blocked off just outside the area.

    Referee Neil Swarbrick is having none of it.

  12. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    The skipper almost becomes the hero!

    Jonny Evans almost heads for glory but Butland produces a save keep it out. Stoke are living dangerously at the moment.

  13. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    That would have been special.

    Joe Allen's attempted clearance is headed straight into the path of Jake Livermore but the West Brom midfielder volleys it over the bar.

  14. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    West Brom might be trailing but as the touch map below shows, West Brom (on the right) have had a lot more touches in the opposition box than Stoke.

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Fletcher off, Mame Biram Diouf on.

  16. Butland to blame?

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Danny Mills

    Ex-England defender on Final Score

    Butland made an outstanding save in the first half and we were talking about him for England, but if that's Joe Hart that makes that decision (for the West Brom goal) the media would slaughter him. This is why I think Joe Hart gets a rough time - one or two keepers seem to get away with it.

  17. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    West Brom have had all the ball in this second-half.

    They want that equaliser but apart from a few chances immediately after the break, they have yet to create another clear-cut opportunity.

    Chris Brunt

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Jay Rodriguez is coming on for Nacer Chadli.

    He was only on the pitch for about 14 minutes...

  19. Post update

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Chadli, who came on at half-time, is clutching his left leg and has called for the medical staff.

    His afternoon could be over very prematurely.

  20. CLOSE!

    Stoke 2-1 West Brom

    Choupo-Moting looks disappointed and he probably should be.

    Shaqiri's free-kick is whipped into the box and finds it's target but the striker heads it inches over the bar.
