I am backing this match to see some entertaining action. Backing both teams to find the net looks a value bet. On that note, over 2.5 goals could also be in play, while West Brom surprising the visitors is not a bad option either.

  • Both teams scored in 3 of West Brom’s last 4 matches (All competitions).
  • Over 2.5 goals scored in all 4 of West Brom’s matches this season (All competitions).
  • Over 2.5 goals scored in 3 of last 4 matches between West Brom and Arsenal at this venue (All competitions).
  • West Brom have won 3 of their last 4 matches (All competitions).
  • Arsenal have lost their last 4 matches including friendlies (All competitions).
  • Arsenal have lost 2 of their last 4 matches at this venue against West Brom (All competitions).

Head to Head


West Brom and Arsenal have played each other 143 times with West Brom winning 38 and losing 74 with the remaining 31 matches ending in a draw.

These sides have last met in the Premier League last season with Arsenal doing a double. A 4-0 win at this venue was followed by a 3-1 win at home.

West Brom Form


West Brom made a breezy start to their Championship campaign winning three and drawing one of their four matches. With 11 goals they are already the best scoring side in the Championship.

In their two matches at home in the season, West Brom have found the net seven times.

New manager Valerien Ismael has made a flying start to his West Brom career and will look to continue the trend.

West Brom Team News


Matt Clarke has been withdrawn early from their last match and will be unavailable for this match.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at the weekend by London rivals Chelsea. That continued a poor start to the season as they also lost 2-0 to Brentford in the first match.

The Gunners have a trip to Champions Manchester City next weekend and that could play in manager Mikel Arteta’s mind.

Arsenal have happy memories of playing West Brom having done a league double last season. Also, their EFL match in September 2013 ended in a win via penalties.

Arsenal Team News


Arsenal’s injury list is long with Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel, Hector Bellerin and Thomas Partey out of contention. Players like Willian, Alexandre Lacazette and Ben White are still not available due to Covid-19 isolation restrictions.

Verdict

West Brom are playing attractive football and should fancy their chances of getting more goals here. Arsenal are struggling, but will look to get their mojo back.

I am backing both teams finding then net here with over 2.5 goals also in play. Considering the poor recent form of the visitors, West Brom have a great outside chance to win this match.
