Arsenal will hope to win a third successive Premier League game for the first time this term when they face West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns tonight (Saturday).
West Bromwich Albion have been quite hapless in the first three months of the 2020/21 season.
Back in the Premier League after securing automatic promotion from the Championship last term, the Baggies have struggled to give a good account of themselves, winning just one game till date.
Their latest result saw them being trounced 5-0 by Leeds United, leaving them five points adrift of safety.
Arsenal, like West Brom, have endured a season from hell so far.
Mikel Arteta’s side have picked up a mere 20 points from their first 16 Premier League games, which has left them languishing at 13th on the table.
This has been contributed by their inability to score goals consistently and, therefore, string together a positive run of results.
However, the Gunners come into the game on the back of successive wins to end 2020.
West Brom held Arsenal to a 1-1 draw the last time these two sides met at the Hawthorns, way back in December 2017.
West Brom XI (4-1-4-1): Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, O’Shea, Ivanović, Sawyers, Pereira, Phillips, Gallagher, Diangana, Robinson
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerín, Holding, Marí, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
