1-0 Lukaku 71′
The most recent meeting between the two clubs was an FA Cup third-round tie in January 2011 when Reading, then of the Championship, beat the Baggies 1-0. Shane Long, now of Albion, scored the only goal for the Royals.
Reading are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions against West Brom.
Albion are unbeaten in their last eight home league games against the Royals (W7, D1) since a 1-0 defeat in the old Division Two in February 1988.
The Baggies have conceded goals in just two of their last nine Premier League games at The Hawthorns.
Albion are one of only three teams – along with West Ham and Fulham – yet to concede at home in the Premier League this season.
West Brom’s tally of seven points from their first four games of the season is their best top-flight tally since 1982-83 when they had nine from four matches.
Reading are still looking for their first league win of the season and have won just one of their last 10 fixtures in the Premier League (W1, D3, L6).
In each of their previous two Premier League campaigns the Royals managed to win at least one of their first four games.
Two of their four goals so far this season have been scored in the 90th minute.
