West Bromwich Albion vs. Arsenal: Preview and TV schedule

Jamie McDonald

Arsenal continue their fight for a Champions League place away at an erratic West Brom.

The Gunners put four past bottom club Reading last weekend, while Southampton did them a favour with a shock win at home to Chelsea. Arsenal are now only a couple of points in arrears of the Blues and the coveted fourth place, though West Brom will prove to be tricky opponents here.

Despite a barren mid-season run which saw Steve Clarke's side go six games without a win, they are still riding high in eighth place, with their particularly strong home record a concern for Arsene Wenger. Arsenal will be looking to win consecutive away games for only the second time this season, last doing it in December when they saw off strugglers Reading and Wigan.

For this match the Gunners could be without Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere, though both are likely to be involved. Nacho Monreal will be available after recovering from a slight knee problem, leaving only the long-term injured duo Ryo Miyaichi and Abou Diaby definitely sidelined.

West Brom's star winger James Morrison is a slight doubt with a hamstring injury, though Steve Clarke has declared that he should recover in time, leaving only Zoltán Gera and George Thorne out, along with the suspended midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu.
