Preview: West Bromwich Albion vs. Arsenal

Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday's Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal.

Arsenal will be hoping to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League when they visit The Hawthorns on Sunday to face West Bromwich Albion.

The Gunners have won their last five league matches, including last weekend's 2-1 success at Swansea City.

West Brom have won their last two games, including last week's 2-1 victory over Manchester United, which was the club's first win at Old Trafford since 1978.

Arsenal come into the match on the back of a Champions League win over Napoli in midweek.

Scott Sinclair is set to miss out for West Brom as he continues to recover from a hamstring problem, while Victor Anichebe could be absent due to a groin injury he picked up at Old Trafford.

Morgan Amalfitano is expected to start after scoring in his last two Premier League appearances.

For Arsenal, Bacary Sagna has been ruled out for three weeks with a hamstring injury, so Carl Jenkinson is expected to replace him in defence.
