PREM: West Brom v Arsenal preview


West Brom v Arsenal preview

Matt Phillips is out of West Brom's clash with Arsenal, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain faces a late fitness test for the Gunners.


Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns sitting five points off fourth-placed Liverpool, but having played two games less.

West Brom are eighth, seven points off seventh after losing their last two games.

Arsenal stumbled in the Black Country last season, losing 2-1 as Santi Cazorla missed a late penalty.

West Brom winger Phillips has missed the last three games with a hamstring problem and will be joined on the sidelines by James Morrison who is nursing an ankle knock.

Salomon Rondon could be recalled to the starting line-up after the striker, who is on a 13-game run without a goal, was a second-half substitute in last Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Everton.

England midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain was forced off in the 5-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Lincoln last weekend with a hamstring problem but it was more of a precaution and he could be involved at The Hawthorns.

Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi have overcome illness but Kieran Gibbs is a doubt with an unspecified knock, while Mohamed Elneny (ankle) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) are out.
