Arsenal v West Brom Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

Arsenal and boss Arsene Wenger have treated the League Cup as a testing ground for fringe players and youngsters in recent years. The Gunners have suffered for their experimentation with early exits a number of times in recent years.

However, on Wednesday the Gunners made it into the fourth round of the competition with a 1-0 home win over Doncaster. In truth, the Gunners should have put the game to bed in the first half, but in the last 20 minutes, the League One visitors came close to taking the game into extra time.

Not a priority for Arsenal

Arsenal made it through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday, with a Theo Walcott goal enough to ensure progress to the next round.

The visitors came close to taking the lead virtually straight from the kick-off. The ball was launched forward and Kongolo hit an effort from around 25 yards out that David Ospina had to get down low to save.

The home side went up the other end soon afterwards. Mohamed Elneny played the ball into the box for Theo Walcott. The winger beat his defender before attempting to fire back across Ian Lawlor, only for the Rovers goalkeeper to save the effort with his legs.
