ORIGINAL: Arsenal will be hoping to continue their almost-perfect home Premier League record against West Brom tonight.
The Gunners have beaten West Brom in each of their last six Premier League meetings at the Emirates Stadium – scoring 13 goals, but conceding just one.
Arsenal need a victory more than ever.
The London side are in the midst of their worst start to a Premier League season since 2011.
The team made a step in right direction last weekend, thanks to a 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
Things are better for West Bromich, who started the weekend 10th in the Premier League – one point ahead of Arsenal, suffering only one loss in their last five games.
West Brom’s Gareth Barry is set for a record 633rd Premier League appearance.
Barry said: “As crazy as it sounds after all these years, my focus will be on winning the game.
“When you make your debut as a young kid you’re never setting yourself a target like this.
“Even when you play 500 games you think you’re coming to the end of your career and you’re not expecting to play many more games.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told the BBC: “West Brom have the culture of the Premier League, a manager who knows how the league works.
“They are very strong on set-pieces, solid defensively – it’s tough to score against them.”
