A ‘Miracle seeking’ Arsenal host West Brom Albion in the Thursday Night Premier League football at the Emirates.
Arsenal have now drawn two matches in a row and squandered the chance to close in on both Leicester City and Tottenham. They are currently at fourth position and taking maximum points from this match will help them move to third surpassing Manchester City.
West Brom Albion sits at 14th place on the log with 40 points in 33 games. The Tony Pulis managed side has failed to win in their last four league games gathering a meagre 1 point from possible 12. This has been the highlight of their season so far; whenever they find good form they will quickly find ways to go back to level zero.
- Arsenal has managed 9 points from a possible 15 from their last 5 Premier League games.
- The Gunners have won 2, drawn 2, and suffered a loss in their last 5 home games in the league.
- West Brom are without a win in their last 4 league matches, which reads 1 draw and 3 defeats.
- The Baggies have scored just 1 goal in those last four matches.
- West Brom’s away form is a poor one as have won just once in their last 11 matches.

The first leg of this encounter ended 2-1 in favour of West Brom at the Hawthorns. That Victory marked the first time West Brom had the better of Arsenal after in over 11 games.
In addition to this, Arsenal have won 8 times in the last 10 meetings between the sides, while they drawn once and suffered one defeat.
Arsenal vs West Brom: Prediction
Arsenal inconsistency and carelessness at the times that matters most have cost them vital points in the tittle run this season. The Gunners’ inability to get maximum points at crucial games and considering circumstance that warrant them to get those maximum points has cost them trust from the fans.
However, I suggest nothing but victory for the Champions League ticket seeking Gunners side. This has everything to do with poor form of West Brom in the recent outings.
