West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal, The Barclays Premier League, Saturday 21 November 2015, Kick Off 15:00 Local Time
WBA: Myhill, Dawson, Evans, Olsson, Brunt, Morrison, Fletcher, Yacob, McClean, Sessegnon, Rondon.
ARSENAL: Cech, Gibbs, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla; Sanchez, Ozil, Giroud.
Arsenal have a raft of injuries to deal with, as has become customary at this time of year.
But they can still put out a strong enough side to win this one comfortably on the counter.
With a player like Sanchez on the park, Arsenal don’t even need to have a brilliant game because they have a match-winner.
But a result for Arsenal certainly isn’t a given. WBA haven’t been at their best this season but they remain solid and well organised ta the back.
They would probably see a draw as a good result but Arsenal need the points to stay in contention at the top of he table.
Indeed, with Manchester City playing Liverpool this weekend and United facing a tough trip to Watford with Rooney and Martial highly unlikely to play, Arsenal should see this as a possible opportunity to get ahead of their rivals in the title race.
