After giving their Champions League ambitions a boost with a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in midweek, Arsenal will be aiming to get their Premier League campaign back on track when they travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom on Saturday.
The Gunners come into this match in eighth place after suffering two consecutive defeats but are 4/5 (1.80) favourites with William Hill to bounce back with a win here.
With just one home win to their name in six league matches this season, Alan Irvine’s men are available at 18/5 (4.60) to pull off a shock victory this time out.
The last two meetings between the sides at this stadium have both finished 1-1, and you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them playing out another draw in this one.
As is so often the case with Arsene Wenger, the victory over Dortmund arrived just as the pressure was reaching a crescendo.
The Frenchman seems to have a knack of pulling results out of the bag just at the right moment, and that win will have given his team some much-needed confidence just when they needed it the most.
Those reinvigorated players should now travel to the Midlands in strong shape to take on a team they can usually rely upon to surrender the points, having beaten them in five of the last seven league encounters, losing none.
Although less high profile than their guests’ struggles, the Baggies have endured a difficult run themselves of late – losing four and winning just one of the last seven matches in all competitions.
Therefore, while this may not be a good to time to play against Arsenal, a West Brom team bereft of confidence should provide fairly amenable opposition at present, with those 4/5 (1.80) odds looking like good value on them extending the visitors’ losing streak to three in a row.
