Stoke were denied the bragging right of having won a Premier League match this season when they played West Bromwich Albion.
After a second half effort, Stoke were in the clear to get three points from the game. However, a late match effort from Salomon Rondon ensured West Brom had a share of the points.
English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion have agreed to offer Darren Fletcher a new deal, according to reports. Talks between both parties are expected to begin in a few weeks. Tony Pulis has had a decent start to the new campaign.
The management values the contribution of Fletcher, so would offer him an extension. The Albion wants to tie all the important players to the club on a long term basis.
Fletcher’s contract with West Brom demands that his deal be extended when he plays in a certain amount of Premier League games. The club is ready to offer the Scotland international a better package as the 32-year old has made an impact since joining on a free transfer from Man United last year.
West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster claimed that his team did not deserve to lose against Everton during the weekend.
The Merseyside outfit managed a comeback 2-1 victory over the Midlands team. After the home team were able to get in front within the opening 10 minutes throughMcAuley, they managed to hold their own for much of the game before Mirallas came up with an equaliser just before half-time. It was an excellent goal by the Belgian international as it involved a passing move that West Brom simply could not live with.
West Bromwich Albion suffered a 2-1 defeat in the hands of a non-league side Torquay United as they prepared ahead of the new season.
The pre season friendly played on Monday night showed the height they have to reach in the coming term.
Goal keeper Ben Foster was beaten from a distance as Callum Hall put the team ahead just after the half time break. The host returned breathing fire and soon got their second through a Brett Williams shot. Darren Fletcher sent a pass which Matt Philips was able to control before scoring ten minutes out.

West Bromwich Albion Goalkeeper Ben Foster is not likely to accept the move to Manchester City to fill the space of an English player as third choice goalie.
Ben Foster conceded two goals in the match against Arsenal at the Emirates on Thursday. The game played in a relatively empty Emirates Stadium ended 2-0 for the Gunners.
The first goal came in the 6th minute when Alexis Sanchez received the ball from Mesut Ozil, avoided a challenge from Sandro and fired a powerful shot beyond the reach of Ben Foster. This was the goal that Emirates needed to lift the atmosphere.
The Blackburn Rovers have played a total of eleven games in the last five weeks and finally now, they have got some relief because of international break and Paul Lambert, the boss, is pretty pleased about it.
Rovers actually had a win at Griffin Park the other day which was their first on the ground of an opposition in a long time.
So, ideally, a manager would have liked the team to take that confidence and momentum ahead rather than being glad about the break, but, in this case, one can easily understand why Lambert is welcoming the break with both hands.
Salomon Rondon might be the person who is being talked about the most and is being praised for striking that lone goal in the Baggies’ previous win over Manchester United, but, according to the coach Tony Pulis, the contribution of Claudio Yacob shouldn’t go unnoticed as he is also somebody who did great work for the team in the playmaking department.
It was after a long duration of three decades that West Bromwich Albion won against the Red Devils at home and according to Pulis, it was Yacob who laid the platform of that historical win with his solid game in the midfield.
