Watch Live: Arsenal vs West Brom (Lineups and Live Stream)

Arsenal has the FA Cup final to look forward to, but first they will look to mathematically lock up third place in the Premier League table as they host West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates, live on Bravo or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

The Gunners are three points ahead of Manchester United in third and holding a seven-goal differential advantage, so third place is all but assured, but still not mathematically secure.

Danny Welbeck has yet again been rested in a desperate attempt to get him fit for the FA Cup final as he battles a knee injury. Olivier Giroud is also on the bench, and he will hope get in the game and net a goal to avoid ending the season on a seven-match scoreless streak.

The man up front for Arsenal is Alexis Sanchez, who will be supported by Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil in the attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the bench surprisingly, having just returned to training this week from a hamstring injury, but Mathieu Debuchy is still unfit to make the squad due to the same problem. Jack Wilshere is in the 11 and grabs his 100th Premier League appearance.

The Baggies hammered a lackluster Chelsea midweek and will look to another top team with little to play for with the aim of ending the year on a high note. They have no new injuries to speak of, with just goalkeeper Ben Foster sidelined with a long-term knee injury that could affect him into next season.
