With two wins from six Premier League fixtures, Arsenal haven’t had the most exciting December. However, the North London side have shown some character within recent weeks, defeating Crystal Palace in their most recent fixture and also coming back to draw 3-3 against Liverpool this month. With Arsenal currently sitting in 6th, Wenger will hope to use this fixture to kick off a good run of form for the New Year.

West Brom have had a poor season in comparison to their last campaign, sitting 19th in the Premier League table. Furthermore, Alan Pardew’s men are winless in 18 fixtures which is a run that they will certainly want to end soon. In addition to this, Alan Pardew is yet to gain a win as West Brom manager.
