Arsenal take on West Brom at he Emirates on Sunday fully aware that a win over the Baggies should confirm a fourth placed finish and secure a berth for the Champions League playoffs for next season.
Pepe Mel’s side travel to the Emirates at the back of 1-0 win over West Ham last weekend, a result which saw the Hawthorns club go four points clear of the dreaded drop zone.
The Baggies have three games left in the current campaign and Mel’s side would definitely take the pitch to play for a point and halt Arsenal in their own backyard. The reverse fixture in the earlier half of the season had seen both teams ties one goal a piece at the end of ninety minutes at Hawthorns in October.
The Gunners however, have an impressive home record this season, losing just once against Aston Villa in the opening day of the season. Wenger’s side would have little problems against West Brom and should dispatch the away side with relative ease.
Here is the possible Arsenal starting lineup against West Brom.
Prediction: 3-1; Arsenal will be looking to consolidate the top four spot and expect them to win comfortably at home.
