Albion v Stoke City match preview

24 August 2017

ALBION will be aiming to make it three wins from three Premier League games when they take on Stoke City at the Hawthorns this Sunday (ko 1.30pm).

The opposition 

Stoke have recorded one win and one loss from their two Premier League games so far. Following a narrow opening day defeat to Everton, Mark Hughes’ men beat Arsenal 1-0 last weekend thanks to new signing Jese Rodriguez’s debut goal.

Rodriguez has been brought in alongside the likes of Bruno Martins Indi, Darren Fletcher and Kurt Zouma to help the Potters push on from their 13th placed finish last season.

Last time out 

An early James Morrison strike was enough to see off Stoke in a narrow 1-0 win at the Hawthorns back in February.

In the reverse fixture the previous September, it took an injury-time header from Salomon Rondon to cancel out Joe Allen’s earlier goal and earn the Baggies a point.

Match Reports

Albion 1 Stoke City 1

27 August 2017

ALBION and Stoke City played out a 1-1 draw on a sunny Sunday afternoon at The Hawthorns.

After a goalless first half it was the Baggies that took the lead on 61 minutes thanks to Jay Rodriguez's first Premier League goal for the Club.

However, Stoke drew level with 13 minutes to go when substitute Peter Crouch headed into an empty net.

The result means that Tony Pulis' men have picked up seven points from their opening three Premier League matches.

James Morrison had the first chance for Albion on five minutes as Chris Brunt's corner found him at the back post, but he didn't connect properly with his header and it went just wide.

Stoke then went close on 24 minutes as Kurt Zouma's shot took a huge deflection off Gareth Barry and looked to be heading in, but Ben Foster somehow clawed it over the crossbar.

After the interval it took a quarter of an hour for the Baggies to take the lead as a fantastic Allan Nyom cross from the right hand side was met by Rodriguez who made no mistake in nodding it past Jack Butland from close range.

Albion almost doubled their lead five minutes later when Ahmed Hegazi rose highest to power a header towards goal, but Butland was on hand to push it over.

With 77 minutes on the clock it was The Potters who managed to find an equaliser when a defensive mix-up between Foster and Hegazi gave Crouch an easy header from close range.

Neither side was able to find a winner and an even game ended with the teams taking a point each.

ALBION: Foster, Hegazi, Dawson, Nyom, Brunt, Barry, Morrison (Yacob 70), Livermore (c), Phillips (McClean 74), Rodriguez (Burke 88), Rondon.

Subs: Myhill, Wilson, Field, Chadli.
