West Brom v Arsenal – Probable lineup – Wenger set to field superstars

Arsenal take on West Brom at the Hawthorns hoping to get their quest for a top four back on track on Saturday at 12:30.

The Gunners have a mixed record away to West Brom with just one win in their last three league games at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies are currently eight but have not actually beat a top seven this season.

West Brom will remain in eight place whether they win, draw or lose today.

Arsenal meanwhile sit in fifth place, four points behind 4th placed Liverpool but with two games in hand.

Both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez participated in first team training this week but the Germany international of Turkish origin will not feature for Arsenal.

The reason behind Ozil getting dropped has not yet been officially disclosed but he has struggled for playing time recently due to illness.

Arsenal even shared a picture of Ozil training on their official twitter page just 10 hours ago.

Sanchez will star out wide with Welbeck returning to the side, playing as a centre-forward.
