West Brom vs Arsenal Prediction
It has been a long time since we have seen Arsenal struggling in the Premier League close to the bottom of the table. The Gunners have picked up 17 points from 5 wins and 2 draws in their 15 league appearances this season in the schedule.
West Brom has only one win in their 15 attempts so far this season, and this ensures they have little to no use of their ground advantage in the game. Two of their recent three winless fixtures have ended in a draw, showing an improved fighting spirit in the home team dugout.
Arsenal will have to rally all their guns blazing to build on their win in the league. With a better squad strength in the middle, the Gunners are likely to create more chances in the fixture. So, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
The away team has a better run in their h2h history with the Albions. This gives a slight edge for the traveling side, even though they have only one successful visit within the last five times. Hence, the tip for Arsenal to win either half of the match will probably be a suitable option in the clash.
