West Brom vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Arsenal need a result when they travel to face West Brom in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off.

The Baggies have dropped off in recent matches and were easily beaten away at Everton last time out.

Romelu Lukaku was among the scorers as Everton secured a comfortable 3-0 victory.

The Gunners were too strong for non-league Lincoln City in the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup, easing to a 5-0 win at the Emirates.

A deflected Theo Walcott effort gave Arsenal the lead, with the floodgates opening in the second period.
