Lacazette taking a penaltyWhen you face a Tony Pulis side you know you’re in for a physical battle, and that was very much the case last night. The Baggies had four players booked, were lucky not to see Craig Dawson sent off, and committed 17 fouls during the 90 minutes. As a player new to English football it’s […]

Arsene Wenger stayed relatively diplomatic on the penalty incident that infuriated his opposite number Tony Pulis during last night’s 2-0 win over West Brom. Shkodran Mustafi clearly slid in and took the legs from underneath Jay Rodriguez, but referee Bobby Madeley played an advantage, from which the Baggies almost scored – only a great save […]

Arsenal beat West Brom 2-0 last night thanks to a double from Alexandre Lacazette, but a somewhat dodgy first half and some poor refereeing meant we got away with some things we might not have on another day. Tony Pulis was furious, which is of course fantastic, and James provides his ‘On the whistle’ thoughts […]

Arsenal survived some hairy first half moments and put in a very solid second half display to come away with a deserved three points and a 2-0 win over West Brom tonight. Here are our player ratings.

Aaron Ramsey heaps praise on teammate Alexandre Lacazette and West Brom's Gareth Barry after Arsenal's win at the Emirates. Alexandre Lacazette has warned Arsenal not to "get carried away" after their recent upturn in Premier League form. After a slow start to the season that saw them take just three points from their opening three matches, which included an embarrassing 4-0 defeat by Liverpool, Arsenal have gone unbeaten in September, picking up seven points. That tally included a battling goalless draw at champions Chelsea, and following Monday's 2-0 win over West Brom, Lacazette told SFR Sport that the squad were...

Tony Pulis shows his frustration at the numerous amounts of calls which went against West Brom at the Emirates Stadium. Tony Pulis accused Alexis Sanchez of "cheating'' to earn Arsenal an early free kick and insisted West Brom should have been awarded a penalty during their 2-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium. Jay Rodriguez was brought down in the area after a clumsy challenge by Shkodran Mustafi with the scoreline at 0-0, but he swiftly returned to his feet and forced Petr Cech to tip his shot onto a post as referee Robert Madley let play continue. Sanchez by then had already won a free kick on the edge of the area...

Arsene Wenger discusses Arsenal's win over West Brom and Shkodran Mustafi's challenge on Jay Rodriguez in the penalty area. Arsenal were worthy winners as two goals from Alexandre Lacazette helped them to a 2-0 victory over West Brom, but they had to survive some difficult moments in the first half in particular. Not least when Shkodran Mustafi was incredibly lucky not to concede an early penalty for a reckless sliding tackle on Jay Rodriguez. Referee Bobby Madeley played on, and the visitors will feel hugely aggrieved by such a bad decision. There were penalty shouts for the Gunners as well for fouls on Nacho Monreal...

• Arsenal face three games in seven days, including Belarus trip• ‘The ones who prove it works are paid by the guy who says it does’

Arsène Wenger has questioned whether modern recovery treatments for players such as cryotherapy actually work and wonders if they have been pushed by specialists with vested interests.

The Arsenal manager is at the beginning of a demanding week, in which his team face West Bromwich at Emirates Stadium on Monday and return to their home ground for another Premier League fixture against Brighton on Sunday, which kicks off at 12 noon. In between times, they play Bate Borisov in Belarus in the Europa League on Thursday.

... in which Arsenal try to build more momentum after their decent showing at Chelsea, while West Bromwich Albion hope to rediscover their early-season form, having given Manchester City a scare in the League Cup last week.

The Baggies haven’t won at Arsenal since September 2010. But they did give the Gunners a working over at the Hawthorns in March, and were only seen off here last time round very late on Boxing Day. So while Arsenal are hot favourites tonight, Tony Pulis and his men will fancy their chances too. Should be fun. Kick-off at the Emirates is at 8pm BST. It’s on!

Arsène Wenger said it all with one of those half-suppressed smirks. “West Brom has a way to deal with everybody,” he said and by that, he meant Tony Pulis has a way to deal with everybody. Wenger vs Pulis is the ultimate clash of styles and how Wenger has suffered in away matches against his rival. The Emirates story is different. Wenger’s record there against Pulis teams reads: played 10, won 10. David Hytner

• Arsenal midfielder and forward out of contract in July 2019• Arsène Wenger: ‘Both of them are in a good moment for us’

Arsène Wenger wants to push new contract talks with Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, whose deals at Arsenal expire in the summer of 2019. However, the manager has warned that because of the inflation of the transfer market, more and more players are set to enter the last years on their contracts.

Arsenal have a clutch of players in their final 12 months, most notably Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil, and there would be consternation if Ramsey and Welbeck were to go down the same path. Welbeck is currently out until mid-October with a groin injury but he started the season well while Ramsey was impressive in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea.

• Forward has not started in Premier League since Manchester City interest• Arsenal manager says he believes Sánchez is happy at club

Arsène Wenger has insisted he is not seeking to make any sort of point to Alexis Sánchez over his selections of the forward so far this season.

Sánchez tried and failed to force a move to Manchester City before the closure of the summer transfer window and Wenger has used him since as a starter in the Europa League and Carabao Cup but only as a substitute in the Premier League.
