What Trueform says for West Brom vs Arsenal
Arsenal have pulled clear of West Brom on our Trueform ratings chart over the festive period and are fancied to come out on top when these teams meet at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
The Baggies are without a win in 18 Premier League matches, including six under new manager Alan Pardew, and have been struggling to score goals all season.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom are second from bottom in the table and three points from safety following a goalless draw with Everton on Boxing Day, when Salomon Rondon and Craig Dawson missed chances to break the deadlock.
Winger Matt Phillips believes the Baggies have what it takes to survive, stating: “I think you can see from the performance that we were really good and we created a lot of chances.
“Sooner or later, we’re going to score one, two or three and win the game. In recent weeks, we have lifted our performances and we have to take the positives.”
However, Albion have already lost to both Manchester clubs and Chelsea on home turf, so Arsenal will be keen to come away with maximum points too.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Alexis Sanchez looks set to leave Arsenal in one of the next two transfer windows but he isn’t letting that affect his performances judged on Thursday’s double strike in a 3-2 triumph at Crystal Palace.
Arsene Wenger commented on the Sanchez situation: “Nobody knows what will happen. It’s difficult to speculate.
“We are focused on short term, that means the next game with the players committed and ready to fight. It’s not a guarantee of how long you stay somewhere. As long as you are somewhere, you give your best.”
Sanchez was also on target in Arsenal’s previous 3-3 draw with Liverpool and does tend to score goals in bunches, netting in three straight games during November.
