Stoke City 2-0 West Brom: Fortunate Diouf brace piles misery on West Brom manager Alan Irvine

Stoke City moved into the top-11 of the Premier League table, with striker Mame Diouf scoring twice in the second-half to put the pressure on West Brom manager Alan Irvine, reports BBC Sport.

There was little between the two clubs in the first 45 minutes of football, with goalscoring chances at a premium, but after the break the game came to life.

Diouf converted a cross from Stoke fullback Erik Pieters to give Stoke the lead in the 51st minute, before an Marco Arnautovic shot deflected off Diouf and went past West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster to put the Potters 2-0 up in the 66th minute.

The result leaves West Brom in a precarious position in the Premier League table, while the under-fire Alan Irvine will be fearing the worst.
