Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 5/4 with bet365

Not too many West Brom supporters will head to London on Thursday for a dead rubber against an Arsenal side who are looking to stave off Manchester United and secure fourth place in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s team trail Leicester by thirteen points after failing to beat Crystal Palace on Sunday and they look awfully skinny to claim victory against the Baggies.

Arsenal have failed to win seven of their Premier League matches at home this season, with a title tilt failing to materialise despite the absence of Chelsea, Liverpool, City and United in the running.

They should probably win on Thursday considering West Brom have one goal from their past four matches and Saido Berahino couldn’t hit a cow’s backside with a banjo. In fact, the one-time England hopeful missed twice from the penalty spot against Watford on Saturday.

Tony Pulis will go into ultra-defensive mode for this clash and it might be that they can squeeze a point from this encounter, with Mesut Ozil having gone off the boil for Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez carrying the scoring can.

Arsenal tend to defend meanly enough unless they are facing Andy Carroll so a low-scoring encounter appears to be on the cards. So don’t bother tuning in unless you want to watch a dull game. Probably.
