Team News: Arsenal
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to contend with due to a largely intact group. David Luiz (Hamstring Injury) misses out.
Team News: West Bromwich Albion
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, West Bromwich Albion boss Sam Allardyce has no fitness worries to report coming into this clash.
For this match, we think that Arsenal will more than likely fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they face West Bromwich Albion, who might well find it difficult getting goals.
We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 2-0 winning score for Arsenal at the end of the 90 minutes.
