WBA vs ARS Dream11: Arsenal will hope to win a third successive Premier League game for the first time this term when they face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night. Back-to-back wins for Arsenal see them slowly climbing out of a rut and up the table. Their performance against Brighton in their last game out, a 1-0 win, was by no means convincing but the three points is all that mattered. West Brom will come into this one deflated, after achieving a solid 1-1 draw against Liverpool to then fall victim to a heavy 5-0 battering from Leeds just two days later. It’s a good time for Arsenal to play The Baggies as they should take full advantage of their morale so expect an away win.
