STAR MAN
Peter Odemwingie
The Russia-born Nigerian international has displayed consistently good form since signing from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2010. Odemwingie became the first West Brom player to score 15 league goals in a season in 2010/11, and has netted three times in the Premier League this campaign. The experienced forward played in Nigeria, Belgium, France and Russia before joining Steve Clarke's side, and will pose a threat for Arsenal's defence on Saturday afternoon.
