Having scored 48 per cent of their goals from set-pieces this season, there is no doubt where West Brom’s main threat will come from on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger is well aware of the Baggies’ biggest strength, but says they have impressed him in many areas this term.

“They have a big experience, they are well organised, physically very strong and very efficient on set-pieces,” the manager said. “I think they’re the team who have scored more goals than anybody else on set-pieces.

“This season they’ve done very well in midfield. They have played very well, and up front they have Hal Robson-Kanu and Salomon Rondon who have done very well for them as well.

“It’s a very balanced team with a good size who are equipped to deal with the Premier League.

“It’s true that it is tough because West Brom is traditionally always a very difficult game, but as well it’s an opportunity for us to come back to the position that is much closer to Chelsea.”
