Video: Full Match Highlights, Opta Stats, Arsenal vs Westbrom

Arsenal sent West Brom down with a 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium as Sam Allardyce suffered relegation from the Premier League for the first time in his career.

The Gunners, 10th in the Premier League table ahead of kick-off and playing for little more than pride after their Europa League exit on Thursday, took the lead when the excellent Bukayo Saka, playing at left-back, crossed for Emile Smith Rowe to volley home (29).

Arsenal doubled their advantage soon afterwards when Nicolas Pepe cut inside from the right flank and curled a stunning effort beyond the outstretched Sam Johnstone (35), but they had some nervy moments after that.

Opta stats – West Brom’s sinking feeling

  1. West Brom have suffered their fifth relegation from the Premier League, the joint-most by a team alongside Norwich City, whilst Sam Allardyce has been relegated from the top-flight for the very first time in his managerial career.
  2. Arsenal have recorded back-to-back Premier League victories for just the second time in 2021, having previously done so back in January.
  3. Of the five relegations that West Brom have suffered from the Premier League, only in 2002-03 (4) have the Baggies had their relegation confirmed with more games remaining than this season (3).
  4. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 30 Premier League home games against promoted (W25 D5), with their last such defeat coming back in November 2010 against Newcastle.
  5. West Brom boss Sam Allardyce has failed to pick up a single point in his 10 Premier League trips to the Emirates Stadium, with only Harry Redknapp at Old Trafford (15 visits) managing more matches at a single venue without managing to earn at least one point in the competition.
  6. Bukayo Saka’s assist for Emile Smith Rowe’s opening goal was his 19th in the colour of Arsenal since making his debut in November 2018, more than any other player at the club.
  7. Emile Smith Rowe is the fourth player aged 21 or under to score for Arsenal in the Premier League this season (along with Saka, Martinelli and Nketiah) – no team have had more different U21 scorers in the competition this term.
  8. Matheus Pereira is the first West Bromwich Albion player to reach 10 goals in a Premier League campaign since Saido Berahino managed 14 goals back in 2014-15.

Arsenal are back in action on Wednesday when they travel across London to face Chelsea, live on Sky Sports; kick off 8.15pm.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
