    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    And that was the last kick. Everton have their first victory under Ronald Koeman. They were a much more dangerous team when Romelu Lukaku came on. The Belgium striker didn't score, but it is clear why Koeman wants him to stay.

    I've already put a short report of the game live - it's here. I'm off to add to it now. Thanks for your company this afternoon. See you soon.

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    The free-kick is cleared, but the ball runs loose to West Brom keeper Ben Foster on the edge of the box - he gets a shot away, but it bounces wide...

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    No way back? Well, Everton defender Mason Holgate handles needlessly by the corner of his own penalty area. It's a West Brom free-kick. The goalkeeper is forward..

    West Brom's fans are heading for the exits. They feel there's no way back for their team here in the time that remains.

    There may just be another twist here. Hold on to your hats...

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Then it's West Brom with a chance to equalise. James McClean seems to have the ball in Everton's penalty area for an age, but never in a position where he can get a clean strike away. Everton's defenders do just enough, and get the ball out for a corner - which is cleared. We're into four minutes of stoppage time, and the game has become very stretched.

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Or can Everton seal it? Romelu Lukaku bursts on to Yannick Bolasie's pass and should score - but Ben Foster is off his line to make a fine save.

    West Brom pressing, but can they equalise?


    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Everton respond with their final change, and it's a debut for Wales captain Ashley Williams, who replaces Kevin Mirallas. Phil Jagielka moves to the right of Everton's defensive three, with Williams going into the centre. Mason Holgate has moved to right-wing-back. That feels like a 'what we have, we hold' move from Ronald Koeman. We shall see.


    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Final change for West Brom: Rickie Lambert is on for Saido Berahino, and almost gets on the end of a left-wing cross immediately. Everton's defence just about holds firm.

  13. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Yannick Bolasie has looked a real threat since coming on, and he clearly fancies a debut goal, lashing a shot wide from 20 yards as the ball runs loose during an Everton attack.

  14. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    West Brom centre-back Gareth McAuley sees a penalty appeal rejected as he goes to ground following a corner. To be honest, hi steam-mate Craig Dawson probably has a better shout, as Mason Holgate has his arms round the Albion man's waist as the ball comes over. Neil Swarbrick is certainly not taking the Mike Dean approach to discipline at set-pieces.

  15. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Yannick Bolasie makes a terrific run down the right for Everton, with Jonny Evans nowhere, and crosses for an unmarked Ross Barkley. Goal... No! Barkley powers the header wide, then puts his hands to his face. It should be 3-1 to Everton.

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Tony Pulis is indeed not happy. The West Brom head coach can be seen in his technical area, signalling like an exasperated building site foreman watching his charges carrying a long plank the wrong way.

  17. 'Pulis won't be happy'

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Martin Keown

    Former England defender on Football Focus, BBC Two

    "Barry is as surprised as anyone else when the ball comes to him, and he nods it in at the back post. Tony Pulis prides himself on his set-pieces and he will not be happy!"

  18. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Everton have the wind in their sails. Leighton Baines pounces on a loose ball and strikes for goal from nigh on 30 yards, but the ball fades away to the left and Ben Foster needs only to watch it.


    West Brom 1-2 Everton

    Changes all over the shop now. Everton bring on debutant Yannick Bolasie to replace Gerard Deulofeu. It means Bolasie, signed from Crystal Palace during the week, is facing West Brom for the second Saturday running.

    West Brom, meanwhile, bring on James McClean for Craig Gardner, and 17-year-old Jonathan Leko for Matt Phillips.
