West Brom but on a calm and collected performance today at the Bet 365 Stadium. What was an evenly distributed game with 51% / 49% possession favouring Stoke, became a display of class and experience from the West Brom players.

Dwight Gayle got himself on the scoresheet in the 25th minute with a well-worked set-piece straight off the training ground. It started with Johansen who drifted the ball into the back post from a free kick 25 yards out, only to find an eager Hegazy who elegantly tapped the ball across the face of goal, eventually landing on the head of Dwight Gayle just 3 yards out. Unmissable.

Then it was a game of control for Darren Moore’s side. Previously West Brom have struggled to keep clean sheets with a total of only 4 clean sheets this season. Stoke looked defeated after every attack was cut out by either a hard-working midfield or a stone wall back four. The Baggies never looked under any threat or discomfort.
