All the details ahead of the Gooners' visit to The Hawthorns
ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday as they look to get back on track against Arsenal at The Hawthorns (ko 12.30pm).
Despite being 16 points adrift of leaders Chelsea in the Premier League and exiting the Champions League earlier this month, the Gooners still find themselves with a chance of silverware this season. A 5-0 win over Lincoln City last weekend put Arsene Wenger's side into the last four of the Emirates FA Cup for the third time in four years. A tie with Manchester City awaits in April, but focus will now turn to the Baggies on Saturday and keeping in touch with Liverpool in the battle for a top four spot in the league.
Last time out
Olivier Giroud's late header denied Albion what would have been a hard-earned point at the Emirates Stadium on Boxing Day.

Santi Cazorla, who missed a penalty in this fixture last season, will miss out. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury.
The Baggies have beaten Arsene Wenger's side just once in the last six seasons, a 2-1 triumph at The Hawthorns last campaign.
Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez has had a hand in 35 goals this season (21 goals, 14 assists), more than any other Premier League player in all competitions. Matt Phillips leads the way for the Baggies with 13.
