West Brom vs Arsenal predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture

West Brom host Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday evening as the Baggies try to bounce back following their 5-0 thrashing by Leeds earlier this week.

For Arsenal, it was promising to capitalise on their convincing 3-1 Boxing Day victory over Chelsea, while West Brom took a step back after Sam Allardyce’s first result in charge – an encouraging 1-1 draw against league leaders and champions Liverpool.

The Baggies will enter Saturday’s fixture in 19th place in the Premier League, while Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will come into the tie in 13th or 14th spot – depending on how Crystal Palace fare against bottom Sheffield United.

Here’s everything you need to know about the top-flight fixture.

The game will kick off at 8pm at the Hawthorns on Saturday evening.

The match will air live on BT Sport 1 HD and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can also stream it live on the BT Sport website and app.

West Brom will once again be missing the injured Conor Townsend, while Jake Livermore is serving the final game of a three-match ban. Former Gunner Kieran Gibbs is unlikely to feature due to a thigh issue, and Kyle Bartley and Hal Robson-Kanu are also not expected to be involved.

West Brom: Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, O’Shea, Peltier; Robinson, Pereira, Sawyers, Gallagher, Diangana; Grant 

Arsenal: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Elneny, Xhaka, Smith Rowe; Saka, Martinelli, Aubameyang

There was little in West Brom’s performance against Leeds to suggest they are going to turn a corner particularly quickly, even after their draw with Liverpool, while Arsenal do seem to be improving after a torrid spell in the Premier League. West Brom 0-2 Arsenal.
