West Brom vs Arsenal LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture tonight


Follow all the action as West Brom welcome a resurgent Arsenal to The Hawthorns in the Premier League this evening. 

Mikel Arteta’s side have finally begun to show flickers of promise, with consecutive victories against Chelsea and Brighton, after such a wretched start to the season. Despite that, the Gunners remain 14th in the table, with just 20 points from 16 games thus far. Their hopes of securing a European place for next season are not completely diminished, though, with just six points separating them from the top six, and a consistent run of results could still see Arsenal reverse their fortunes. 

Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce’s firefighting task to save the Baggies from relegation has not gotten off to a flying start, despite a valiant draw against champions Liverpool. West Brom were resoundingly thrashed 5-0 by Leeds last time out and remain rooted to the relegation zone, with just eight points from their 16 games. However, Arsenal have struggled this season to break down sides who sit deep and Allardyce will set his side up to frustrate a Gunners’ outfit who remain short on goals. Follow all the action live below at the conclusion of Brighton vs Wolves:
