Arsenal and West Brom will be fighting to keep their seasons alive on Sunday night as they face off at the Emirates.

The Gunners chances of clinching a place in the Europa League are fading by the week with the Baggies just one defeat away from relegation.

Arsenal’s disappointing European exit against Villarreal in midweek means boss Mikel Arteta could make sweeping changes for this one.

David Luiz and Granit Xhaka are both expected to miss out in this one but Mo Elneny, Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette are all expected to return.

As for the visitors, Sam Allardyce has admitted they need a miracle to stay up and the former England boss could roll the dice in North London.

Irish international Dara O’Shea is expected to shake off a knock in time to play with Callum Robinson set to replace the ineligible Ainsley Maitland-Niles in Allardyce’s team.

But if the experienced boss does look to go front foot forward in this one, there could be potential starts for Grady Diangana and Scotland star Matty Phillips.

And Kick Off in this one is 7pm on Sunday night at Emirates Stadium.
