West Brom have failed to secure their first home Premier League win of the season after letting a 2-0 win slip away and losing to Everton.

Saido Berahino put the hosts ahead before half time with the only goal of the first half.

The Baggies then doubled their lead through a Craig Dawson header in the second half.

But Everton mounted an impressive and immediate comeback, managing three goals in half an hour to seal a 2-3 win.

West Brom go into half-time in their Premier League clash against Everton 1-0 up, thanks to a goal from striker Saido Berahino.

The Baggies capitalised on confusion in the Everton defence, allowing the England forward to fire home after 41 minutes.

Less than amonth ago, Berahino was threatening never to play for the club's chairman again, after several approaches for him by Tottenham Hotspur were rejected.

He has since returned to training and to the match-day squad for West Brom.

Derby County has made another appointment to its managerial staff, bringing in former England international Kevin Phillips from Leicester City.

The former West Brom and Birmingham City player was acting as first team coach under Nigel Pearson and subsequently under Claudio Ranieri.

He's the third new addition to the coaching staff since Clement took over as Derby’s Head Coach in June.

“Kevin enjoyed an illustrious playing career. He was successful at a number of clubs, experienced being promoted to the Premier League on several occasions and his goalscoring record certainly demonstrates what an excellent striker he was.

“He is now embracing a new pathway in his career and has successfully made the transition from player to coach in the last year at Leicester City.

“I believe Kevin has a lot to offer with his skills and expertise and I would like to thank Leicester City for their co-operation in allowing Kevin to join us.”

– Paul Clement, Derby County Manager

The 42-year old former professional footballer scored 282 goals in 660 professional appearances during his 20-year playing career, which included nine and a half seasons playing Premier League football and eight England caps.

Man fined for flying drone near Buckingham Palace, Westminster and Premier League venues

A man from Nottingham has been fined £1800 for flying drones over Premier League football stadiums near Buckingham Palace.

Security guard Nigel Wilson from Bingham showed "flagrant disregard" for people's safety as he shot videos to upload to his YouTube channel using three unmanned aircraft, the court heard.

It is the first time a person has been prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service for using drones following a police-led operation.

Between September and November last year Wilson filmed aerial views from heights of at least 100 metres of Premier League, Champions League and Championship football matches.

Police horses were startled by the device as Wilson flew it at a Champions League group stage game between Liverpool and Ludogorets at Anfield, the court heard.

He also filmed:

  • A Derby County-Reading Championship clash at Derby Stadium
  • An Arsenal-Tottenham derby at the Emirates Stadium
  • Manchester City's game with Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium

He was fined £200 for each of the nine offences he admitted asd wekk as paying £600 in costs and a £20 surcharged. He also forfeited the drones and cameras.

The judge told Wilson he had put the public at risk by flying the drones over busy, built-up areas.

"At each and every one of these places an accident could have occurred simply by a gust of wind or something of that nature taking it out of your control. In each and every case you knew what you were doing. Several times you were warned by police, who seized drones from you, and on numerous occasions by people posting on your YouTube channel. It was the height of arrogance in terms of public safety."

– District Judge Quentin Purdy

There are very strict rules surrounding the use of small unmanned surveillance aircraft such as drones. Operators of machines of this sort must:

  • Not fly them over or within 150 metres of any congested area, over or within 150 metres of an organised open-air assembly of more than 1,000 people.
  • Not fly them within 50 metres of any vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under the user's control, unless they have obtained permission from the Civil Aviation Authority.
  • Must must maintain direct visual contact with a drone throughout its flight path so they can avoid collisions with people and buildings
