Arsenal take on West Brom at the Hawthorns hoping to build upon an impressive run of form and keep their spot at the top of the Premier League table.

Gunners star Mesut Özil is expected to start and will break his own assist record should he provide a goal against West Brom. The 27-year-old has provided an assist in the Gunners last six consecutive games – a Premier League record.

Özil also has the best assist record in Europe’s top five leagues – England, France, Italy, Germany and Spain – setting up 10 goals in 11 league games.


The north London based side have a few injury concerns including Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey who have a hamstring problem and Theo Walcott remains out.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will however, welcome back Hector Bellerin who is available after recovering from a groin injury.
