West Brom 1 Everton 2: Barry nets winner for Ronald Koeman’s side

21 Aug

Everton cranked up the second-half pressure – Deulofeu hooking a close-range shot against the post before Ramiro Funes Mori saw his header brilliantly turned behind by Foster.

As with Stekelenburg’s early save, relief was shortlived.

Leighton Baines’ corner produced the winner via a downward nod from teenager Mason Holgate and Gareth Barry’s final touch.
