Match in Focus

20:00 Mo 25Sep SKY

Arsenal v West Brom

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Four of the last five home meetings ended 1-0 or 2-0
Expert verdict
After a couple of tough games against Cologne and Chelsea last week Arsenal will be nicely rested for this Monday clash and should gain a workmanlike victory. West Brom have managed just four goals in five league games and this is a chance for the Gunners to steady their defence.
