On-loan Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has yet again saved the blushes of his new manager Roy Hodgson after coming off the bench to secure a vital point for his new Club.
Again on the bench to the surprise of many, the Mexico International came on in the dying minutes of the game placing himself on the right wing but ready in the centre of the penalty area to meet Steven Reid’s cross, bringing down the ball down with his left foot before placing it with his weaker right foot.
Very lively in the West Brom offensive department, the 21-year twice went close to score a second in stoppage time but was twice denied by Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begović.
