Arsenal have had a rough few weeks but they will hope that they have got themselves a Christmas present by having an easy win over West Brom in front of their home crowd. Arsene Wenger is in need of some wins and although he has never been in risk of losing his job, his chance of winning the title will rely of what he can get his team to do know so they are within touching distance come the end of the season.

Arsenal are way too reliant on Alexis Sanchez and although he has been living up to his levels, he needs support if this team are to compete for the title. Ozil has had a drop in form and this needs to improve if the team is to win something this season. The defense if alright but there are improvement which need to be made and a win here will let the players gain some confidence which will help.

West Brom on the other hand will know that they are unlikely to get anything out of this game but they will look to park the bus and grind out a result for the team. That being said this will tough but if things are like how Tony Pullis likes it, a 0-0 draw will be on their mind.

All in all though, I think that Arsenal will win this game quite easily but unfortunately I don’t think it is worth a bet since we are getting such a bad price on this wager. That being said, there is still value in this game and the under 2.5 goals is my pick. Arsenal are a good team but West Brom will park the bus so I am expecting a low scoring game here. 

Pick:
Under 2.5 Goals
