West Brom

The Baggies lost for the fourth time in five matches on Thursday night.

West Bromwich Albion suffered their fourth defeat in five matches at Arsenal on Thursday night.

Two first-half goals from Alexis Sanchez put the Baggies to the sword, and dropped them to 15th place on goal difference.

West Brom had 29 per cent of the play and produced one shot on target to leave their tally of away wins at an alarming one in their last 12 trips.

Despite this, Tony Pulis' team are all-but safe from the relegation, with 10 points separating them and 18th-place Sunderland with four fixtures left to play.

However, their poor form - and for many, their poor season as a whole - has raised concerns over West Brom's ability to compete in next season's Premier League, particularly with Pulis at the helm.
