Pepe Mel’s first game as West Brom Head Coach ended in a 1-1 draw with Everton.
The Toffees took a first-half lead through Kevin Mirallas but a Diego Lugano header equalised after the break.
West Brom are 13th after the draw with Roberto Martinez’s Everton sixth. A win would have taken Everton into fourth place, above Tottenham and Liverpool.
Former Real Betis Coach Mel said in a post-match interview that he was pleased with the result and the second-half performance.
“For me it was very good. The first-half the team – we were too open but the second-half we were compact.
“Everton is a team that is very, very strong. Tonight is a difficult match for me and my team.
"It's only the first week. I need to work. I need my players but the players are angry. For me, that's important.
"I need one more striker. But I have Nicolas Anelka, Matej Vydra, Victor Anichebe – I'm happy."
