West Brom vs Arsenal by Marcelino
Arsenal are having a great season so far on 26 points, level on points with leaders Man City. Record stands 8-2-2. However, they have many injuries in their team. Injured players are Bellerin, Wallcot, Chamberlain, Ramsey, Wilshere, Rosicky and Wellbeck. Most of these players are 1st team players. The team looked depleted with injuries and not in best form against Tottenham who arguable played better than them on Arsenal's home ground. They won just 1 match in their last 4.
I suspect I will get a lot of downvotes forthis, but I think West Brom to win is a good bet here. 7.50 are bigg odds to get on a home team to win in the premier league! These are the same odds we got for bottom side Aston Villa to beat leaders Man City. But Arsenal are depleted with injuries right now. In addition, Tony Pulis has a great record against Arsenal. He knows how to frustrate them by defending well in numbers and breaking up their play. Tony Pulis, while managing Stoke City hosted Arsenal, between 2008 and 2013 6 times. In those 6 games, he won 3 games, drew 2 and Arsenal won just 1. I think Pulis knows how to play against Arsenal and he will get a good result against a depleted Arsenal side. Also, the international break will favour West Brom. While Arsenal's players were away on international break, West brom had most players stay and plan and strategise for their game against Arsenal. My pick is small stakes on an against the odds win for West Brom, probably 1-0.
