West Bromwich Albion
19:00 GMT 25 September 2017
After another weekend in the Premier League with plenty of goals, the last match to be played sees West Bromwich Albion take the trip to North London to face Arsenal. The sides have had contrasting as West Brom sit in 10th place with a game-in-hand on all of the teams above them while the Gunners are 12th and can only reach 7th with three points. The visitors will move into the European places with a win.
As if to be expected, Arsenal have dominated this fixture in the last 10 years but the spoils have been shared in the last four meetings between the two sides as they have both won two games each. It was actually West Brom who won the last match with a 3-1 scoreline as the wheels began to truly fall of for Wenger’s side last term. The last time The Baggies beat Arsenal at the Emirates was in 2010 as they won 3-2 after going 3-0 up.

At this early stage of the season, this is a must-win game for Wenger and his side as they could easily slip even further into trouble. They are without their top scorer, Danny Welbeck for the clash and he joins Calum Chambers, Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla on the injury table.

West Brom have nothing to lose in this match and this could see Tony Pulis adopt an usual attacking style. They have three players who are major doubts for the game as Chris Brunt, Oliver Burke and Nacir Chadli are all having last fitness tests ahead of the fixture.

At the Emirates, it goes without saying that the Gunners are favourites to take all three points from the match but there is no guarantee these days with the disarray the club is in. It is the perfect chance for West Brom to build on their good start as the hosts have looked very unsettled at home recently. If everything goes right for Arsenal, they could end up scoring a few goals against a resolute Baggies side.
