With fourth place now assured after Everton's 3-2 loss against Manchester City on Saturday, manager Arsene Wenger must have one eye on the FA Cup final on 17 May, when they take on Hull City.
West Brom, meanwhile, make two changes, Diego Lugano and James Morrison come in.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Arteta, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud
WBA: Foster, Dawson, Lugano, Olsson, Brunt, Amalfitano, Mulumbu, Morrison, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Berahino
