View: Predicted West Brom starting XI v Arsenal

West Brom travel to Arsenal on Sunday evening knowing that their Premier League status could be lost at the Emirates.

Should the Baggies lose in North London, they will be resigned to another season in the Championship, something that has been coming for weeks.

Sam Allardyce has been going down with a big fight though, with his changes making a huge difference to how the Albion are playing.

Sam Johnstone will continue in net, with his performances one of the main reasons why we haven’t been relegated as of yet.

The back will see a big change, although four faces that started against Wolves will continue, including Dara O’Shea despite him being dragged off early.

Kyle Bartley, Conor Townsend and Darnell Furlong will continue alongside the young Irishman who was unlucky to be taken off by Big Sam.

Semi Ajayi will be the man to drop out, with his performance simply not good enough last time out; he was even destroyed by Don Goodman.

Okay Yokuslu has been phenomenal since arriving, and the Turkish international will start again alongside Conor Gallagher.

The Chelsea loanee will need another partner though, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles ineligible to feature against his parent side at the Emirates.

There is no need in going defensive anymore, we need to win.

Matheus Pereira will drop into the role of Maitland-Niles but will be pushed further forward in an advanced playmaker position.

Matt Phillips and Callum Robinson will be the two players to come into the side, with both coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Wolves.

Mbaye Diagne scored the equaliser on Monday and will lead the line once again at the Emirates, as we look to avenge that shocking defeat in the reverse fixture.

Here’s how we expect them to line up…
