  10. 'Not good enough'

    West Brom 1-0 Stoke City

    Stoke City

    Stoke City's Erik Pieters: "We started really sloppy and tried to get the equaliser. I myself had a really good chance but overall it wasn't good enough.

    "Crouch is good in the air but it doesn't mean we have to play long ball all the time. 

    "They created a few more chances in the first half and we were lucky it was only 1-0, but it just wasn't good enough."

  11. 'We had to dig deep'

    West Brom 1-0 Stoke

    West Bromwich Albion

    West Brom goalscorer James Morrison: "We had to dig deep against a Stoke side who have players that can hurt you. We said at half-time to take our chances.

    "We're delighted with the three points, we've got a good bunch of lads here and dig deep for each other. That was a good result because Stoke are on our heels and now we've gained a bit of breathing space."

  12. Berahino on bench for Stoke

    West Brom v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    Jake Livermore makes his full debut for West Brom after joining them from Hull for £10m. He's the only change to Tony Pulis' side, with captain Darren Fletcher making his 300th Premier League appearance.

    West Brom: Foster, Nyom, Dawson, McAuley, Brunt, Fletcher, Livermore, Chadli, Morrison, Phillips, Rondon.
