West Brom v Arsenal: Match Preview.


The Gunners head to the Hawthorns following their 2-0 win over Klopp's Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Arsene Wenger would definitely want to build on the UCL win and Olivier Giroud could make his first start for the north London side after being out for months due to injury, though the Frenchman scored a spectacular goal against Manchester United last weekend when he came off the bench.

With in-form Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal do have an edge and the Chilean will definitely be a nightmare for the West Bromwich defence.

On the other hand West Brom have Berahino - with his pace- and the West Brom coach Alan Irvine will hope Arsenal don't come strong in defence.

Match day: Saturday.

Kick-Off time: 12.45 Venue: The Hawthorns.

Referee: Chris Foy.

Predicted starting XI for West Bromwich: Anichebe, Berahino, Brunt, Gardner, Morrison, Sessègnon, Gamboa, Lescott, Dawson and Ben Foster.
