Leipzig sells Scotland winger Oliver Burke to West Brom

Stoke City were gifted their first away point of the season by a defensive mix up between Ben Foster and Hegazi, with Peter Crouch the beneficiary of the mistake as his equaliser cancelled out Jay Rodriguez's opener.

West Brom won each of last season's league meetings 1-0 and the latest showdown showed few signs of being a more goal-laden affair, with neither side able to muster a clear chance in a tepid first 45 minutes.

In the 25th minute Kurt Zouma went close to breaking the deadlock when his speculative shot from outside the penalty area deflected off Gareth Barry and forced Ben Foster to tip the ball over the bar. They are two good sides, who have enjoyed encouraging starts to the season, and it shouldn't just be the so-called "big clubs" on TV each week.

Ahmed Hegazi's error brought West Bromwich Albion's flawless start to the Premier League season to an end on Sunday as Tony Pulis's men were held 1-1 by Stoke City.

The 36-year-old Crouch was gifted the easiest of chances in the 77th minute when defender Ahmed Hegazi seemed to fail to heed a call from Ben Foster and sliced his clearance nearly out of his goalkeeper's hands.

Zouma dragged an effort narrowly past the left-hand post and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scuffed a late shot wide, but Stoke were unable to find what would have been a first victory against West Brom since December 2014.
