Premier League action on Sunday as Arsenal and West Brom meet at Emirates Stadium – 8:00pm GMT.

Right now, Arsenal sit in ninth place in the League, 10 places higher than the nineteenth placed hosts, West Brom.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Arsenal have managed to gain 49 points so far, going into this fixture

With a win in their previous game, (0-2) against Newcastle United, Arsenal will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Arsenal keep finding ways to win, having secured 10 victories in their last 20 games is astonishing this season. With ninth, they currently sit 49 points in the League having won 14 fixtures, drawn seven meetings, and lost 13 matches.

When Arsenal host West Brom, they will do so on the back of six victories and four draws on their own ground.

A victory for Arsenal would put them on 52 points.

Arsenal are no strangers this Season to illness and injury and Mikel Arteta is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without two of his key players.

West Brom will want to win this next game, if only to move on from their two previously disappointing results, a draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers and also against Aston Villa.

West Brom are quickly becoming the Premier League’s draw specialists, having recorded two in their last two matches. With nineteenth, they currently sit 26 points in the League having won five games, drawn 11 meetings, and lost 18 matches.

It must be a worrying prospect for West Brom to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two victories and five darts to the home team.

Winning this fixture will see West Bromwich Albion on 29 points.

West Brom may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
