Arsenal vs West Brom Preview – Injury News (Jack is Still Not Fit), Lineups, Match Facts, And Prediction

Arsenal v West Brom Preview

Per Mertesacker Mesut Ozil Arsenal

With Qualification for champion league spot already secured, Arsenal can relax a bit in their last two league games. Wenger may rest key players so that players get enough rest before the FA cup final against Hull City at Wembley. But, there is still a slim chance for the gunners to finish 3rd in the league if Chelsea slip-up in their last two games. So, Wenger is expected to field a strong lineup atleast for West Brom game and may rest players on the final day match against Norwich City.

Injury News

Speaking at a pre-match press conference, Wenger said: “The same group of players should be available for Sunday. It’s our last home game and you want everybody available and finish with a win. ”

“They (Jack Wilshere and OX) are not ready yet. Alex is in treatment at the moment and not in training. It’s very difficult to give you a time-scale on him at the moment.”

So, Monreal will start as left back while Ramsey will partner Arteta in the midfield. Jenkinson may start too as Sagna has picked up a minor knee injury.
