Arsenal will be hoping not to fall further behind in the race to qualify for the Champions League when they travel to West Brom.
The Gunners trail fourth-placed Liverpool by four points and know anything but a victory will harm their chances of catching the Reds.
Arsene Wenger will become a record holder for taking charge of the most Premier League games today, taking his tally to 811 to overtake Sir Alex Ferguson.
West Brom are on an 18-match winless streak and have yet to benefit from Alan Pardew’s arrival at The Hawthorns.
However, the Baggies have beaten the Gunners in their last two visits to the Hawthorns and will be hoping history repeats itself today.
Check out the confirmed team news below.
West Brom XI: Foster, Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs, Phillips, Livermore, Barry, Brunt, Rodriguez, Robson-Kanu
Substitutes: Nyom, Yacob, Myhill, McClean, Burke, Krychowiak, McAuley
