Team News

  • Arsene Wenger is expected to recall a number of players he rested against Doncaster in midweek.
  • Jack Wilshere completed 90 minutes for the first time in more than three years in midweek but isn't expected to start against West Brom.
  • Calum Chambers and Theo Walcott suffered injuries against Doncaster, which might rule both out for this fixture.
  • A groin injury will keep Danny Welbeck sidelined until after the international break, while Mesut Ozil is closing in on a return from a knee injury.
  • Gareth McAuley made his first appearance of the season in West Brom's League Cup defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday and is set to feature here too.
  • Oliver Burke, Nacer Chadli and Chris Brunt remain doubts for the away side, but Jake Livermore is expected back after being given an extended break by Tony Pulis.
  • Kieran Gibbs will start against his former club for the first time since leaving Arsenal to join West Brom over the summer.
  • Gareth Barry will break the record for most Premier League appearances on Monday.


  • West Brom are winless in four matches after making a bright start to the season. They did beat Arsenal 3-1 in the last meeting between the sides, but have lost each of their last six matches at the Emirates, failing to score on five occasions.
  • Arsenal are not at their best but are at least unbeaten in four matches coming into Monday's fixture. They've kept three clean sheets in that run and should be confident of securing three points against the Baggies.

  • Arsenal wins!

  • Arsenal getting bailed out by the ref again, pathetic club.

  • @Aereze Let's be real. Arsenal would probably have won anyway. The extra quality of the Arsenal side is just too overwhelming for WBA at the Emirates. Don't forget Arsenal would have turned the screw more if they went behind early. I think WBA would almost certainly have lost anyway and probably have let in more goals.

  • Penalcazzette strikes again

  • Lacazzette to score and arsenal win 2 - 1

  • in papers arsenal r better side but in the field West Brom r more tactically and play the counter attack very well so i think ...arsenal have the potential to win this game with players like lacazette, and even sanchez of his worse performance can have the difference and win the Game

  • Arsenal to win/under 1.5 first half

  • 2-1 to West Brom

  • Wenger OUT !!

  • Arsenal should line up with a back four against West Brom at home. Frankly it's ridiculous if they don't.

  • @Champion and why that??

  • @delpiero1100 If you support Juventus you may understand (I hope you do because a minuscule amount of football managers and fans understand).

  • @delpiero1100 Why do they need a spare defender at the back against WBA at home? Just look at the masters of the 3 at the back system Juventus and Italy. They adapt between 3 and 4 at the back depending on the opponent. The best teams and managers are proactive with their structure. Unimaginative managers like Wenger that don't understand the game particularly well (like clearly you don't either) will use an unnecessary system for a given opponent. With Elneny and Xhaka also playing the 3 defenders was entirely unnecessary.

  • Where's that stupid Ffaris child?

  • @Champion who??!

  • @delpiero1100 Exactly!

  • I THINK WBA may start Brunt on the left side and play Rondon up front. Rodriguez dropping to the bench. We shall see.

  • @Champion and who do u think shall win this game?

  • @delpiero1100 My prediction was 2-0 on talksport predictor. I think Arsenal win on this game was obvious, it was just a question of how much by. Luckily I guessed right as it gives me 20 points extra on it.

  • @Champion I think WBA would have been better using a 4231 or 4141 with Brunt on the left. I am surprised by the structure and players he went with. Pulls has been surprisingly unpredictable the last few games on selection and in my opinion made some very odd decisions. As a result WBA have struggled as a side.

  • The outcome I see could be 2-1 victory for Arsenal, having been on a good unbeaten streak since the start of the season. A chance for WB conceding is eminently viable.

  • Buy Leon Goretzka and Mahrez in January Mr Wenger and you have two good replacements for Ozil and Sanchez! Personally I'd leave both rotting in the bench! They don't deserve to play for the club!

  • @albgunn yeah u r right bro

  • i honestly think we need an additional tall combative CB for our back 3.Monreal has been effective but he cannot provide the natural shield we require aerially since he is a bit short and would struggle against tall opponents.

  • @Dinozo88 Irrelevant for a wide CB. Look at Azpilicueta for Chelsea. Wide centre backs don't need to be particularly strong in the air. I bet you are someone who says the same for central midfield too, when Kante is miles better than your central midfielders.

  • @Champion who?

  • @pfuu You on the wrong forum again? Stick to baseball.

  • @Champion haha I like your comment

  • Arsenal.......1--2.....West Brom

  • Arsenal to win 4-0 with Alexandre Lacazette scoring a brace with Sanchez and Ramsey each score a piece.

  • Arsenal to win here. They play very well against WBA at home and also are starting to get back on track slowly but surely. 3-0

  • 1-0 Arsenal although I can see 2-1 based on WBA's set play threat.

  • Arsenal 3-1 West Brom

  • Arsenal 3-1 West Brom

  • Arsenal 2 - 1 West Brom
