Reeling from the unwelcome and somewhat unexpected loss against longtime rivals Manchester United, Arsenal is regarded to be in poor form and greatly under-performing. The match against the Red Devils was slated to be a somewhat easy win for the Gunners especially since the Red Devils had been having a much harder time rebuilding the team after ex-manager Alex Ferguson’s departure, but alas, that was not meant to be. Looking to recoup their Premier League run in this upcoming match, the Gunners will be facing the Baggies of West Bromwich Albion in both teams’ 13th game of the season. Both teams met earlier this year in May which resulted in a 1-0 win for Arsenal.

Currently, both clubs appear to be struggling to keep their heads above water — both teams have lost each of their last 2 consecutive league matches. Statistically though, Arsenal appears to have a better chance of winning this round as they have won 8 away games this season whereas hosts West Bromwich Albion have only managed to clock in 1 home win so far. In the 5 most recent Premier League matches between the two clubs, Arsenal have won 3 games and have drawn on 2 matches against the Baggies. Arsenal will need to dig its heels in and dig deep to recover from the morale-crushing defeat at the hands of Manchester United and Swansea City to inspire confidence of a win as well as to start climbing the table again from its mid-table positioning.
Prediction: Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion draw 1-1
