Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League encounter with West Bromwich Albion.

Arsenal must banish the nightmares of their heartbreaking European exit as they prepare to welcome West Bromwich Albion to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening in the Premier League.

Despite going close on a couple of occasions, the Gunners played out a goalless stalemate in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final with Villarreal on Thursday, with a 2-1 defeat in the first leg seeing them bow out of the continental tournament.

Mikel Arteta did oversee a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United in their most recent Premier League encounter, but the Gunners are languishing in ninth in the table and are five points adrift of the top seven as things stand.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the visit of West Brom.
