Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) 31 December 2017
West Brom have been woeful this season, and currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League table, four points adrift of safety, having not won a league game since August.
Arsenal, meanwhile, haven't exactly been pulling up any trees themselves, and occupy sixth position in the table, four points adrift of the Champions League spots, although they do have a game in hand on those inside the top four.
Amazingly, there has not been a draw between the two sides in their last eight encounters, with the north London outfit winning six of those.
Alan Pardew is in the difficult position whereby his side cannot match the Gunners from a playing perspective, but will be expected to take the game to the visitors, considering the plight that they find themselves in.
The game kicks off today at 16:30, and can be seen live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
