Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 1:30pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Arsenal received a massive boost coming into this fixture as they are guaranteed a fourth place finish due to Everton's defeat against Manchester City on Saturday. The Gunners virtually do not have anything but pride to play for in the league.

The Gunners won their third straight league fixture after humbling Newcastle United 3-0 at home last weekend. Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud were all on target to ensure a comfortable victory for Arsene Wenger's side. They sit fourth in the league table with 73 points after playing 36 matches.

Meanwhile, West Brom come into this fixture without the guarantee of a place in top-flight next season. They currently sit 16th in the table with 36 points having played 35 matches and need three points from their remaining fixtures to avoid the drop.

However, the Baggies can potentially heave a sigh of relief if 18th placed Norwich City drop points against Chelsea in the other league fixture on Sunday, which will put the Canaries another step closer to ply their trade in the Championship next season.

The West Midlands club have only lost two out of their last seven league fixtures. Pepe Mel's side overcame West Ham United, 1-0, in their previous fixture at the Hawthorns courtesy of Saido Berahino's strike in the 11th minute.

What Managers Say

Arsene Wenger: "The fans at Emirates have been great the whole season and, of course, I would like to thank them. Normally they should be safe, not mathematically yet but realistically. Pepe Mel has done his job in a quiet way and doesn't speak too much but his team plays well. I think the last result against West Ham got them over the line and that was their target."

Pepe Mel: "We are focussed only on the next three matches. We need an extra point and the most important thing now is the three matches. Arsenal are in the top four and are a big club. But I hope and believe it is possible for us to get something. It will be difficult to keep a clean sheet against them. We need to score goals and have a good, good performance in attack and defence."
