West Bromwich Albion - Arsenal Betting Preview

After a sensational European performance midweek, Arsene Wenger takes his side to the Midlands looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League
Arsenal face West Bromwich Albion this Sunday, only 11 days after defeating them on penalties in the Capital One Cup. 

On that occasion, Arsene Wenger chose to play a second string team, but you can be sure the Frenchman will name a stronger line-up as he looks to continue some fine early season form in the Premier League. 

The Gunners come into this match having won their last five league games in a row. These victories came after losing their opening game of the season against Aston Villa. 

Confidence will be high amongst the squad, with Arsenal comfortably negotiating a dangerous Napoli side at the Emirates to leave them on top of their group in the Champions League. 

BetVictor price them at 4/5 (1.80) to take three points on Sunday.

West Brom themselves will also be full of confidence after victory away at Manchester United last weekend. A Saido Berahino goal gave the Baggies a famous 2-1 victory at Old Trafford to heap pressure on United manager David Moyes. 

That win made it two in a row in the league, after Steve Clarke's men beat a struggling Sunderland 3-0 at home. Before this match, Clarke's side had struggled, unable to find a win in their first four league matches but now they appear to have found thier stride. 

BetVictor price them at 7/2 (4.50) to win the match. The same firm price the draw at 3/1 (4.00).

Looking at the outright market, it's tough to ignore Arsenal's current form. With summer signing Mesut Ozil pulling the strings in midfield, the Gunners have been extremely dangerous going forward. The price of 4/5 (1.80) is far too good to turn down considering how impessive they've been. 

For those looking for more value, backing Arsenal's man of the moment Aaron Ramsey to continue scoring is certainly worth investing in. The Wales international has four goals in his last three away matches and is23/10 (3.30) to net in 90 minutes.
