Match: Arsenal v West Bromwich Albion
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Mon 25 Sep 20:00
It’s Arsenal against West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners can go up to seventh in the Premier League table with a win against a side they have a score to settle with. The Baggies beat Arsenal 3-0 at the Hawthorns earlier this year but Tony Pulis’ men haven’t had as much luck in North London. The Gunners have won each of the last six league meetings between the two sides at the Emirates.
The Gunners will be without a couple of first-team players including Danny Welbeck and Francis Coquelin alongside the long-term absentee, Santi Cazorla. Mesut Özil and Theo Walcott have both overcome injuries to train ahead of the clash.
Gareth Barry will make Premier League history if he features for West Brom tonight and becomes the player with the most appearances. He is fit to start but there are question marks about Chris Brunt, Nacer Chadli and Oliver Burke.
The Smartbets Odds Calculator has Arsenal as the clear favourites for the match. They’re 7/20 for the match with the visitors out at 10/1 and a draw at 23/5. The Gunners have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches and a score to nil could be worth a punt. A 2-0 Arsenal win is 6/1 or you can get a 4-0 home victory at 16/1 if you really fancy the Gunners to get firing.
