The Gunners fought hard against West Brom and finally managed to earn crucial 3 points, thanks to a late strike from Olivier Giroud. Wenger will take this as his team were on two consecutive defeats. Now he will hope that the depleted team can carry the winning mentality into the coming fixtures. Arsenal are fourth in the league table with 37 points.

Sam Allardyce must be kicking himself after seeing his team concede a late goal in the 1-1 stalemate at Watford in his first game as Crystal Palace manager. From a neutral point of view, it was a much improved performance from the Eagles who looked like horses with blinders in the past few games. Crystal Palace are 17th in the standings, just 2 points outside the drop zone.
