West Brom will host current league leaders Arsenal at The Hawthorns on Sunday night at 2030 hrs IST in the English Premier League.

The home side go into this match after a shock 2-1 win against defending champions Manchester United away at Old Trafford last weekend.

With that, the Baggies have won their last two Premier League games in a row. They sit at the 10th position in the league table with 8 points out of their first 6 matches. Apart from these 2 wins, they have drawn 2 and lost 2 matches.

Manager Steve Clarke will be missing the services of midfielder Scott Sinclair and Victor Anichebe, who are both suffering from injuries. Morgan Amalfitano, who is on loan from French side Marseille, will be expected to be in the squad after scoring in his last 2 Premier League appearances for West Brom.

Arsenal have picked up great form over the last couple of months winning all five of their last Premier League matches after losing the opening encounter of the season against Aston Villa.

They come into this match after a satisfactory 2-0 win over Napoli in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. The Gunners are undefeated in their last 10 matches in all competitions winning 9 of them. The only draw was, incidentally, against West Brom in the Capital One Cup last month!

Manager Arsene Wenger must be happy with the performance of his new signing Mezut Ozil who has contributed immensely to the Gunners’ attack and is gelling well with his team mates. Aaron Ramsay has also been in scintillating form for the away side.

Wenger will be hoping to put all 3 points from this match in his pocket and retain the top position in the Barclays Premier League for another week.
