Below, Sports Mole dissects the big talking points from the action at The Hawthorns.
On target: 5
On target: 2
Was the result fair?
In a word; yes. Both teams were certainly giving their all out there, particularly in the second half, which was a great 45 minutes of football. Neither side threatened in the first half, but the second period was a much more lively affair and the draw was the correct result.
West Brom's performance
Baggies manager Alan Irvine will have been suitably pleased with his side's efforts. They could have taken all three points but failed to see it out and that might disappoint somewhat, but the new WBA boss will certainly have been heartened by the way that they came back and took the lead.
It's a similar story for Gus Poyet. His team dominated parts of the second half and fought back well with just five minutes of normal time left. They were unfortunate to concede a soft penalty, but showed determination to rescue a deserved point.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Saido Berahino: The young Baggies striker was quiet in parts, but came to life after netting from the penalty spot towards the end of the first half. He stole a march on Patrick van Aanholt to net the second and he will certainly be a big player for Albion this season.
Victor Anichebe missed a great chance in the second half. After rolling a defender with a typical show of strength, he then skewed his effort wide of the goal from inside the area.
Neil Swarbrick got most decisions spot on, but the penalty was a questionable one. Anichebe went down far too easily, but the referee still pointed to the spot.
West Brom: West Brom travel to Southampton next Saturday.
Sunderland: The Black Cats host Manchester United next week.
