Arsenal vs West Brom: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds
After an inconsistent Premier League campaign and a lacklustre Europa League semi-final defeat, the Gunners look like facing a first season without European football in 25 years.
West Brom will be relegated from the top flight should they lose at the Emirates, a ground where they have a woeful record, but Mikel Arteta knows his squad is suffering after the midweek defeat to their former manager Unai Emery.
Arteta’s opponent today, Sam Allardyce, says the Spaniard’s reaction to the loss to Villarreal will define him as a manager moving forwards. Anything less than a win would another big concern.
As it stands, the Gunners will end the season in ninth and even if they could wipe out a seven-point deficit to Tottenham in seventh, it may only earn a place in the Europa Conference League, a new third-tier tournament in Europe.
