West Brom host Arsenal today and Alan Pardew’s wait for a first win as Baggies boss seems set to stretch into the New Year.
Albion are now bottom of the standings after Swansea’s win yesterday, while Arsenal go into the game in sixth spot but they should be able to claim the win and keep the pressure on the top four.
The Gunners have lost on their last two visits to the Hawthorns but have won six of their last eight meetings with their opponents today.
Arsenal arrive in solid form and are unbeaten in seven, having also managed eight points from the last 12 available on the road.
West Brom may be struggling but they have shown a bit of fight of late and although they’ve not won at home since August the only teams to beat them are Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United.
The Gunners are 20/31 to claim the win but the Baggies may make this a test for Arsene Wenger’s men and the 16/5 on offer for a draw/Arsenal result in the half-time/full-time market appeals and is my top bet today.
