The WBA vs. Arsenal match will be played on Sunday, December 31, at the Hawthorns, West Bromwich. WBA is currently 20th on the table with 15 points, while Arsenal is 6th on the table with 37 points at the moment.
In their previous ten meetings, Arsenal recorded six victories, WBA won two matches, while two games ended in a draw. WBA won the last two matches on the Hawthorns stadium.
WBA board sacked Tony Pullis after the team lost the match against Chelsea by 4:0 in November. However, that didn't help at all, and WBA failed to win the match under the leadership of new manager, Alan Pardew. WBA recorded five draws during that period, but that wasn't enough to avoid dropping into the relegation zone. Their attackers are in a terrible form - the team scored only two goals in their last six games!

Arsenal won the match against Crystal Palace last weekend, but their defense is still unstable - they conceded five goals in the last two games. Lucky for them, attacking force of the team was enough for four points from those two games, and they scored six times. WBA shouldn't be a problem for them - Arsenal will try to take advantage of another Manchester United draw and return in the battle for the top four, which is their primary goal in the rest of the season.
