West Brom vs. Arsenal Match Analysis and Prediction

Arsenal will be looking to kick off the New Year with three wins in a row for under-pressure Mikel Arteta. The side travels to The Hawthorns to take on West Brom on Saturday night. The match kickoff is at 11 pm.

In their last two games, the Gunners have beaten Chelsea and Brighton that saw them move to 13th on the table. However, West Brom remains in 19th position, having collected only eight points from 16 matches.

Sam Allardyce continues his perfect record at Anfield after the side came from one goal down to end in a shocking 1-1 draw to Liverpool. The side look set to make their comeback ahead of their trip to Leeds United. However, it was a shocker for Allardyce, with the side conceding five times without a reply.

The Baggies currently have eight points from one win, five draws, and ten defeats to sit 19th. The side are five points shy off the safety zone held at 17th by Brighton. There is still plenty of things to change with the January window opening on the 4th.

On the other hand, Arteta looks keen to use the January transfer window to clear out the bloated squad. Sead Kolisinac will spend the remainder of the season at Schalke 04, while Sokratis on an imminent move to Fernabache. However, it leaves room for an attacking midfield to spark creativity.
