West Brom vs Arsenal – Match Preview

West Brom will be without defender Gareth McAuley following his red card against Manchester United.

Head coach Tony Pulis says he otherwise has a full squad at his disposal, with Chris Brunt fit after a groin problem.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will assess whether Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud are in the right frame of mind to feature after playing for France during the Paris attacks.

Right-back Hector Bellerin is available after recovering from a groin problem.

However, midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey both remain on the sidelines with hamstring injuries.

Editor’s Note: Arsenal will look to be refreshed after looking particularly leggy against Tottenham before the break and escaping with a point at The Emirates. The injury list has lessened slightly over the break but there are still a number of concerns for Arsene Wenger to deal with. Namely whether Oliver Giroud and Laurent Koscielny are mentally ready to play Tomorrow. The fact they both played on Tuesday should bode well for Wenger,

Another positive is that Alexis Sanchez came through the South American Qualifiers unscathed and will be looking to recapture the form of last season as he had been slightly overshadowed by Mesut Ozil. Ozil broke a Premier League Assist record against Tottenham when he teed up Kieran Gibbs’ equaliser and the run of form he is currently in is much more reminiscent of the player at Real Madrid and the reason that it took £42.5m to bring him to London.

Looking to keep these at bay are a West Brom side who were routinely beaten at Old Trafford before the break although it could have been a different story had Saido Berahino planted his wayward header past David De Gea when it seemed harder to miss (which he subsequently did). The Baggies have lost their last two matches and lost 4 out of the last 6. It’s the best run of form for Tony Pulis’ men and they come up against an Arsenal side who haven’t lost since visiting Chelsea in Septmeber.

Tomorrow I think it will be a away win for the Gunners as they look to heap more pressure on Manchester City and they could sit top for at least a couple of hours if they do get a win (or a draw) at The Hawthorns.
