Arsenal desperately need a win to push up further up the table when we take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns tonight.

Despite winning our last two matches, Arsenal still languish way down in 14th position in the table so we need another victory this evening to improve our situation following a disastrous start to the campaign.

Mikel Arteta has recalled Alexandre Lacazette to start up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving to the left. Gabriel Martinelli is the man to drop to the bench as Bukayo Saka is passed fit to keep his place in attack after picking up a knock last time out.

Dani Ceballos is also given a recall as he starts in the Arsenal midfield tonight with Mo Elneny dropping to the bench. Granit Xhaka keeps his place while Emile Smith Rowe also starts his third consecutive game.

Arteta has picked the same back four once again so Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari, Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney line-up together with David Luiz returning to the squad as a substitute.

These are the line-ups:

West Brom

Johnstone, O’Shea, Ivanovic, Ajayi, Furlong, Diangana, Phillips, Sawyers, Gallagher, Pereira, Robinson

Subs: Gibbs, Bartley, Grosicki, Austin, Harper, Krovinovic, Peltier, Button, Diaby


Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Pablo Mari, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette

Subs: Willian, Runarsson, Maitland-Niles, Pepe, Luiz, Elneny, Willock, Nketiah, Martinelli
