Arsenal finish off their season with a home game against West Brom at the Emirates. Arsene Wenger will look to his star players Sanchez, Cazorla, Giroud and Ramsey to finish the season strongly. Arsenal have struggled of late scoring only one goal in their last three but at the Emirates they have generally speaking been very good this season. Alexis Sanchez , Giroud, Cazorla and Ozil will look to break down a West brom team that have been excellent of late. The Gunners have had a good season and Arsene Wenger has gotten the team to the Champion s League again and they will defend their FA Cup title next Saturday against Aston Villa in Wembley. While Arsenal are more or less guaranteed of the third place they will have one eye on the FA Cup and possibly wont have their full focus on this game.
West Bromhave won three of their last five and are unbeaten over that stretch. Tony Pulis' side have been terrific over that stretch beating both Manchester United and Chelsea. Berahino is their top player and he played just like that against Chelsea scoring a terrific opening goal and being a threat the entire game. West brom made some savvy signings this year and ex Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has had a terrific season. With Tony Pulis doing a terrific job for West Brom this season the Baggies have avoided a relegation battle and will be looking to a full season under Pulis with some anticipation.
I'm taking West Brom +1 here, the Baggies have been very impressive lately and with Arsenal's strike force misfiring I think there is value taking West brom here on the handicap at 2/1 looks a huge price. Arsenal are the better side but at this price we have to take the inform West Brom.
