Arsenal showed their strength in depth when prevailing at Newcastle and can rely on that once more to help them see off West Brom at Emirates Stadium.
Albion’s relegation from the Premier League will be confirmed if they fail to win and the omens do not look good, having already gone down 4-0 to the Gunners on home turf this term.
We’re taking 6/5 for Mikel Arteta’s men to oblige by more than one clear goal again for our first Arsenal vs West Brom prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal made eight changes for the trip to St James’ Park in between Europa League semi-final clashes with Villarreal but still returned with a 2-0 triumph.
Mohamed Elneny grabbed his first league goal for the club early on and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang confirmed his recovery from a bout of malaria by wrapping up a convincing victory.
Arteta stated: “We wanted to keep the team fresh, players with the right attitude to play this game and being able to focus just on today.
“We had a really strong performance from the beginning. We dominated the game and we got the three points which we needed.”
However, the Gunners have gone six home games in this competition without keeping a clean sheet and do have some injury worries at the back.
With Albion forced to go for broke, 11/5 for a home win and both teams to score catches the eye from the Arsenal vs West Brom odds.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Ryan, Bellerin, Gabriel, Luiz, Ceballos, Odegaard, Elneny, Xhaka, Martinelli, Willian, Aubameyang.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom have had a good go at pulling off a great escape but their fate was all but sealed after only drawing 1-1 with Black Country rivals Wolves at The Hawthorns.
Mbaye Diagne cancelled out Fabio Silva’s first-half fluke but the second-from-bottom Baggies couldn’t find the decider they so desperately needed.
Sam Allardyce said: “We owe it to everyone to keep a professional attitude and go out and try to win every game we’ve got left.
“Then hope every team above us loses every game and, by some magic miracle and some fairy dust, we stay up.
“We had two magnificent chances in the second half and missed them both. I’m very sad for the players they haven’t converted this game into a victory.
“You look at Wolves’ goal and say ‘why can’t we get a bit of luck like that?’ It was horrendous conditions but we mastered it better in the second half.”
Albion have been caught out in the run-up to half-time on a number of occasions this season, conceding a division-high 15 times in the final third of the opening period.
Only one team has scored more goals than the Gunners in that section of the game, so 23/10 for the hosts to net most times between 30:01 minutes and the break completes our Arsenal vs West Brom betting tips.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Furlong, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, O’Shea, Gallagher, Maitland-Niles, Yokuslu, Pereira, Diagne.
