As assumed Stoke sat back and played negatively looking to get snatch a shock goal while defending to try for the draw. West Brom never really stamped their authority in the game. They managed 15 shots (5 on target) with Stoke shooting 5 times and only getting 2 on goal.
I was surprised more by West Brom failing to win at home than I am by Stoke getting a result. Stoke will always be a team that can get these sort of shock results by sitting back and playing a strong defensive game.
