Meanwhile, West Brom will look to avoid a fourth successive match without a win – the club will be relegated if they lose.

Prediction

The Gunners will be deflated after their Europa League exit, but anything less than a win will raise the already intense pressure on Mikel Arteta. The Gunners will get a win here. 2-1 to Arsenal.
