    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    A really good win for West Brom. Another crushing defeat for Arsenal.

    What now Arsene?

    I've never seen this many "Wenger out" banners from this group of core travelling supporters. 

    It must be hurtful for him.

    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal corner. Nothing comes from it. That third goal destroyed any hope the Gunners had here. The Gunners have dug themselves out of some holes to finish in the top four in the past. This might be the deepest yet, though.

    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    Late change for West Brom. They are bringing on a homegrown youth. He looks about 12 but Sam Field is in fact 18. He replaces Nacer Chadli.

  6. 'Groundhog Day'

    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Republic of Ireland winger on 5 live

    It does feel a little like Groundhog Day. 

    They have had no pace anywhere at all and nothing from anyone from an attacking point of view today. They have been seriously lacking. Defensively they have allowed West Brom to just break them down. 

    I'm sure Arsene Wenger will make the point that one of the goals was scored with a questionable offside decision but I think referee Neil Swarbrick has made good decisions all game. 

    It will be interesting to see what Wenger says.

    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    Some Gunners fans have seen enough. One fan holds up a banner that reads 'Enough is enough'. It is all shaping up to be a sad and ugly end to one of the great managerial reigns.

  8. 'No spark'

    I'm such a huge admirer of James McClean - he gives you so much on and off the ball. 

    There's just been no spark from Arsenal this afternoon.

    Arsenal are done. The fight has drained from them here. There could be some serious repercussions to this defeat.

    Alexis Sanchez has just not been moving too freely at all. 

    Certainly seeing what we have seen in the second half, should Sanchez have been taken off in the first?

    'You don't know what you're doing!' is the chant from the away fans as Alexis Sanchez departs to be replaced by Alex Iwobi.

    We've spoken about West Brom's strength from set pieces and Brunt coming off has not reduced that at all. 

    They have tremendous ability from set pieces. What's that? 14? 15 goals from corners the season now?

    Outstanding.

    It doesn’t matter how you score goals. There’s nothing in the rule book to say you have to score goals in a certain way - you use the strengths in your team to score and that’s what Tony Pulis does, which is why they’re so good from set pieces.

    The 'Wenger Out' brigade are emboldened. The banners have been unfurled. The chants are starting.

  15. Dawson at the double

    West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

    Curtains for Arsenal. And they only have themselves to blame. It is another corner, swung again straight on to the head of Craig Dawson, who plants his effort firmly into the back of the net.

    Yet again, where was the marking?!

    Off goes Chris Brunt, on comes Claudio Yacob.

    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    Neil Swarbrick is getting pressure from both sides here. He's had to deal with tackles on Sanchez all game, not he has to cope with boos from the home crowd, unhappy at what they feel is a foul on Robson-Kanu. He doesn't think it was. A few thousand vocally disagree.

    Awful. Xhaka takes the free-kick but hits it straight into the wall. What a waste.

    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    Big chance for Arsenal. They have a free-kick 20 yards from goal. Granit Xhaka is over it...
