Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion Preview and Prediction 2021

Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion predictions for Sunday’s Premier League clash at The Emirates Stadium. Can Arsenal restore some positivity with a win over relegation bound WBA? Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Arsenal have kept only one clean sheet in their last ten home games in all competitions.

Both teams have scored in three of West Brom’s last five league matches.

Nine of Arsenal’s 17 home league games have been 0-0 at half-time.

Both teams have scored in five of Arsenal’s six home league wins this season.

Arsenal’s campaign collapses

Arsenal failed their crucial campaign-defining test on Thursday evening when they limped to a dismal 0-0 draw at home to Villarreal, ending their hopes of winning the Europa League and of playing European football next season in one fell swoop.

Now, the knives are out for manager Mikel Arteta and the under-fire Spaniard is the bookies’ new favourite to get the chop in the sack race market.

Languishing in mid-table limbo, Arsenal have little other than pride to play for between now and the end of the Premier League season, and the Gunners’ resolve will be examined again by WBA on Sunday.

D-Day looms for Baggies

West Brom’s relegation from the top-flight and return to the Championship will have already be confirmed by kick-off time on Sunday if Newcastle snatch an unlikely victory against Leicester two days’ before, though a defeat at The Emirates will seal the Baggies’ fate.

Sam Allardyce’s men have shown spirit in the campaign’s final exchanges however, and their run of just three defeats in their last 11 league assignments means they can exit the division with their heads held high.

Back both teams to score at The Emirates

Albion have failed to score just once in their last five Premier League matches, and West Brom will fancy their chances of troubling an Arsenal defence that has kept just one clean sheet in their last ten games at the Emirates.

The Baggies carry the division’s worst defensive record to London however, and with Arsenal determined to muster a response after their galling display on Thursday, the hosts can hit back at the opposite end.

Backing both teams to score at The Emirates appeals as a result, while our 2-1 correct score prediction tips Arsenal to eventually squeeze a much-needed victory out of the skirmish.

Alexandre Lacazette was fit enough to feature for ten minutes of the Gunners’ game on Thursday, and his inclusion from the start should arm Arsenal with just about enough firepower to succeed.

Arsenal injuries and team news

David Luiz and Granit Xhaka are Arsenal’s only major injury concerns, though both players could return to the squad for Sunday’s game.

West Bromwich Albion injuries and team news

Sam Allardyce has a clean bill of health at West Brom, so expect to see most of the same XI that faced Wolves. Ainsley Maitland-Niles cannot face his parent club however and will miss out.
