West Bromwich Albion (4-2-3-1): Foster, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Gardner, Morrison, Dorrans, Brunt, Sessegnon, Berahino
West Brom were easily outclassed by league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week and now face another tough task against Arsenal, who will be buoyed by their 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in midweek. The Baggies have lost to two goals in all but one of their home matches this season, and will be put up to the test against a very in-form Alexis Sanchez on Saturday. Alan Irvine has an almost fully fit squad to choose from, with only left back Pocognoli a doubt for the Hawthornes fixture.
Arsenal (4-4-2): Martinez, Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla, Sanchez, Giroud
Although Arsenal outplayed Manchester United for most of the game last weekend, they were still beaten 2-1 by the Red Devils. They will, however, be confident of grabbing a result at the Hawthorns after a convincing 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, securing their place in the Champions League knockout stages. But Arsene Wenger will be without several key players after Jack Wilshere hurt his ankle against United whilst Mikel Arteta and Yaya Sanogo sustained injuries during the win in midweek. Mathieu Flamini will therefore be expected to line-up beside Aaron Ramsey in the middle of the park. Olivier Giroud is expected to lead the line after missing the Dortmund game.

Arsenal with some beautiful passing against West Bromwich Albion last season. Too bad Wilshere won’t be involved this time around!
