Last five head-to-head meetings - West Brom W4, D1.

It is not a particularly high scoring game when these two sides are paired up, with just eight goals coming from those five matches - an average of 1.6 goals per game.

The last time a team conceded three goals in this fixture was back in November 2010 when Tony Pulis was in charge of a Stoke side that won 3-0 at the Hawthorns.

The last time that Stoke beat West Brom was in December 2014 when they ran out 2-0 winners at what was then known as the Britannia Stadium.

There have been 142 previous encounters between these two clubs. West Brom have won 46, Stoke have won 60 and there have been 36 draws.

In the Premier League era, there have been 16 meetings between West Brom and Stoke. West Brom have come out on top on five occasions, with Stoke claiming seven victories in amongst four draws.

Saido Berahino is still looking for his first goal in a Stoke shirt after moving from West Brom.

A 1937 fixture between these two sides saw the rarity of a team reaching double figures when Stoke defeated West Brom 10-3 in February of that year. This remains the Potters' biggest ever league victory.
