  • Thanks for joining me this afternoon - match report and reaction will follow shortly on www.skysports.com

  • As for Everton, that was their first defeat in 12 Premier League encounters. Food for thought for David Moyes as we head into the international break.

  • Albion have now collected seven points from their first three Premier League games under Steve Clarke - a superb start for the new manager.

  • West Brom 2 (Long 65, McAuley 82) Everton 0.

  • Fellaini rises to meet a cross with another header but he's off target and the ball is cleared. 5 mins added time.

    90
  • How did that stay out?! Fellaini looked like he'd score at the far post after Jagielka dragged a shot across the area, but the ball came off his heel.

    84
  • McAULEY GOAL! Inswinging corner from Brunt and McAuley meets it from close range, flicking in the header. West Brom 2 Everton 0.

    82
  • WEST BROM 2 (McAULEY 82) EVERTON 0

    82
  • Howard saves the next long-range Albion attempt, this time from Mulumbu.

    81
  • Yacob blasts a right-foot shot from 20 yards but it goes wide of Howard's left-hand post. Good effort from the Argentinian.

    80
  • Time running out now for Everton. They've failed to seriously threaten Ben Foster's goal since Shane Long put West Brom in front.

    78
  • Brunt replaces Long, and that's the last Albion sub.

    75
  • Shane Long looked to be in after Yacob's pass, but Sylvain Distin wins the sprint and the ball. Now Long is leaving the field...

    75
  • Phil Neville is replaced by Anichebe. Jagielka takes the captain's armband for Everton. All Toffees subs used up now.

    73
  • And Fellaini makes it four Everton bookings - Moss' patience has worn thin with the Belgian. He bundled Long to the ground.

    71
  • Phil Neville is booked for bringing down Mulumbu. Third Everton booking. Complete waste from Morrison on the resulting free-kick, ball swung straight out.

    70
  • Now Everton are chasing the game - Mirallas with a driving run down the left channel, into the area, but his shot is slightly deflected and straight down the throat of Foster.

    67
  • LONG GOAL! Odemwingie crosses with his left foot from the left, and it's perfect for Long to steal into the six-yard box and slide the ball low past Howard. West Brom 1 Everton 0.

    65
  • WEST BROM 1 (LONG 65) EVERTON 0

    65
  • Mirallas gets away down the right, and his cross comes right across the penalty area to Fellaini eight yards out - but he swings his left boot at the ball, and skies the chance. Real waste.
