Picking the Best Potential Arsenal Lineup to Face West Brom on Sunday

There is little rest for Premier League clubs in December, as Arsenal - fresh off a hard fought 2-3 victory over Crystal Palace on Thursday - travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom on New Year's Eve.


Arsene Wenger's men will look to keep the momentum rolling into 2018, as they move to within one point of the top four and keep their hopes of Champions League football alive.


Here's their predicted lineup going into their last match of the year.

Goalkeeper

Peter Cech will likely remain between the sticks for Arsenal as he continues as the Gunners' undisputed number one.

Defence

  • Bellerin

  • Koscielny

  • Mustafi

  • Kolašinac

Despite a dip in form Hector Bellerin has been a regular this season, but will need to up his game going into 2018.


Shkodran Mustafi comes off an impressive performance against Palace, where he scored the opening goal and will almost certainly joined by Laurent Koscielny in the centre of defence. 

Midfield

  • Wilshere

  • Xhaka

  • Iwobi

  • Özil

  • Alexis

In the absence of Aaron Ramsay, Jack Wilshere - another who impressed on Thursday night - will likely get the nod in the centre of midfield.


Joining him in the centre of midfield will be Granit Xhaka, who has had a mixed start to the season but finally looks to be coming into his stride.


Alexis Sanchez bagged a brace against Palace and will look for much of the same against West Brom. He will have plenty of support from the likes of Mesut Ozil.

Forwards

  • Lacazette
    Lacazette9

Lacazette has registered eight goals and three assists so far in the Premier League this season.

The Frenchman has adapted well to life in England and looks to be the front man Arsene Wenger has needed for some time.


West Brom's defensive line will need to be wary as Lacazette not only poses a lethal goalscoring threat but can also set up goals, making him a defender's nightmare.
