Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion Preview

Almost everything looks unsettled at Arsenal at the moment. Arsene Wenger contract issue with link a to Paris Saint-Germain, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil contract saga have overshadowed the Gunners consecutive losses to Everton and Man City within a week.

They have been unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day of the season but suffered back-to-back defeats from winning positions and it has, as usual made their title credentials questionable.

The losses saw them dropped from second on the table to fourth, nine points off leaders Chelsea and just a point above north London rival Tottenham who are in the fifth place.

The call for Wenger sack is no longer new as it has been on since the French boss inability to win the Premier League in the last 12 years. With all sincerity, Arsenal may need to try something new.

That being said, the attention will shift to their Boxing Day match against West Brom at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways when the Hawthorns visit and it is not expected to come cheap.

The Albions who have been in resurgent form will also be aiming to bounce back from their loss to Man United last Saturday, making it a difficult but not an impossible match for the Gunners to win.

Aaron Ramsey is expected to return to the team after three weeks out with a hamstring problem while Oxlade-Chamberlain is out with the same injury. Danny Welbeck has returned to full training but will not feature in the match.

Arsenal Probable Line-up
