We travel to the Hawthorns on New Years Eve, as we look to end 2017 on a high against West Brom.
Name: West Bromwich Albion
Manager: Alan Pardew
Club colours: White and navy
Nickname: The Baggies
Alan Pardew recently took over the reigns at the Baggies following the departure of Tony Pulis.
West Brom’s record attendance is 64,815 from an FA Cup sixth round tie against us in 1937.
Midfielder Gareth Barry broke the record for the most Premier League appearances earlier this season in our match at Emirates Stadium.
Key man: Jay Rodriguez
A £12m signing from Southampton in the summer transfer window, Jay Rodriguez is yet to hit his best form with the Baggies but has the potential to be a difference-maker.
With four goals so far this season, Rodriguez has the capability to pop up in key moments for Pardew’s side.
