West Bromwich Albion secure the three points against Everton at The Hawthorns.

Goals from Shane Long and Gareth McAuley have given West Bromwich Albion a 2-0 win over Everton at The Hawthorns.

The Irishman nearly broke the deadlock after 30 minutes, when he hit the bar with a header from Liam Ridgewell's cross.

However, Long was not to be denied and got his name on the scoresheet in the 65th minute.

Second-half sub Peter Odemwingie sprung the Toffees' defence before squaring the ball for him to apply the finish from close range.

Gareth McAuley then wrapped up a deserved win in the 82nd minute with a header from a corner kick.
