Early kickoff in the Premier League on Saturday will see Arsenal travel to West Brom to take on the Baggies at the Hawthorns. Can Arsenal build on their terrific midweek win over Borussia Dortmund and get their Premier League campaign back on track? With a mini injury crisis Arsene Wenger will be looking to the fit again Olivier Giroud to lead the line as Danny Wellbeck is struggling with injury. Cazorla, Ramsay and Giroud alongside goalscoring heros' Sanchez and Sanogo will be the key men offensively on Saturday in a game that Arsenal simply must win if they want to maintain their push for a Champions League spot at the end of the year.
West Brom themselves come into this game struggling for form, losing three of the last four and will look to get some traction with a home game against an Arsenal side who have struggled in the league. West Brom have had a tough run of fixtures so that record of losing two in three in the league is not actually as bad as it reads as the team lost to Chelsea and in form Newcastle. West Brom are led by young England striker Berahino who has scored seven in twelve games but has not scored in a couple. At home West Brom have been decent only losing two in six games and drawing with Manchester United in a pulsating 2-2 tie.
Can Arsenal build on their win midweek, I think they can. I am going to take Arsenal on the moneyline. At 17/20 there is plenty of value in an Arsenal team that have been underperforming in the league. Arsenal are better than their current league position suggests a win here will see the Gunners jump to fourth for a little while on Saturday.
