West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal London – Prediction (Premier League – 2.1.2021)

H2H: West Brom vs Arsenal – Comparison.

West Brom could do with Conor Gallagher rediscovering the form that saw him net in two consecutive home PL games across Nov/Dec, while Alexandre Lacazette is Arsenal’s recent limelight grabber, having opened the scoring in both of their post-Christmas PL victories. West Bromwich Albion are yet to score a league goal at home after the 30th minute this term, conceding 17 (85%) out of 20 goals against during this period.

West Brom Insights.

West Bromwich Albion have an early opportunity to bounce back from their 5-0 thrashing by Leeds United (Dec 29) and start 2021 as they mean to go on. Now winless in six Premier League (PL) matches (D2, L4), each match in that sequence saw them concede first. Furthermore, they’ve scored in both halves of a league game just once this season. The hosts have now conceded 3+ goals – with the first arriving inside the first ten minutes – in three consecutive home league games (W/D0, L3). However, it is not all doom and gloom, as the ‘Baggies’ are unbeaten in three PL H2Hs here (W2, D1) and new boss Sam Allardyce is unbeaten in two home H2Hs against Arsenal (W1, D1).

Arsenal Insights.

Renowned relegation ‘firefighter’ Allardyce comes up against a seemingly revitalised Arsenal side. Interestingly though, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta – who scored three goals for the ‘Gunners’ against West Brom during his playing career – hasn’t seen his side score before the 25th minute in 15 PL matches, potentially making patience a virtue for the Londoners. Meanwhile, five of the Gunners’ last six league away games have seen one or both sides fail to score. Relevantly, only Aston Villa had kept more PL clean sheets away from home by the New Year’s arrival, which combines well with the fact that Arsenal have scored in every competitive H2H faced at The Hawthorns this millennium (W9, D3, L3).
