Live Match Preview – Arsenal v WBA

Monday night football sees Arsenal take on West Brom at the Emirates, in an early season mid-table clash. Arsenal currently sit 12th in the league, with WBA 2 places above them. Arsenal are currently 9 points behind the two Manchester clubs, but a win tonight will see them leap up to 7th in the table.

Arsenal have pretty much dominated this fixture, since West Brom got back into the Premier League in 2010. WBA won the game in their first year back in the top flight, but since then it’s been 6 wins to Arsenal, with them winning the game 1-0 last year.

Arsenal have won their two previous home games this season, making it 7 home league wins in a row, when including the back end of last season.

WBA won at Burnley in their first away game of the season, but then lost at Bighton on their most recent away day.

Arsenal are 1/3 with bet365 to win the game and although that’s the result I expect to see, it’s not a price I like to play at.  For my fun bet I’ll go for the more risky bet of Arsenal to win and West Brom not to score at 21/20 with bet365.
