West Brom challenge for Resurgent Gunners

Last two of the FIVE *fuckin' FIVE* goals against Chelsea have been flashing to my eyes again and again. Well that is coz I have watched them over and over again as many times as Terry has been in highlights for all stupid shit he has done all his life.

And, Captain Vantastic, oh what an amazing player! He's just keeping me counting.
"van Persie Three, Chelsea Three, Arsenal Five"
  • RVP has 76 goals in 166 Premier League appearances.
  • For the year 2011, Persie has netted 33 in just 38 games for Arsenal in all competitions, just one short of Henry who had 34 goals in 2004. 
  • Van Persie has 27 goals in Premier League for this calender year already, while Henry had scored 27 in 30 in 2004.
  • He has already found the back of the net 11 times this season, while he has started 11 times and came off the bench thrice in all competitions for the Gunners.
  • He has already bettered his Dutch role-model Dennis Bergkamp in all competitions scoring 107 goals in 244 matches, the non-flying Dutchman has 104 in 380 games at Arsenal. 
  • DB10 has 87 league goals which the Captain Vantastic is expected to reach much before the end of this season.

Moving on, first time this season a very confident Arsenal side take on West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, a fixture, last year was the one to forget for most Gunner when the newly promoted WBA shocked Gunners with a 3-2 defeat. 
Gun 'em down

  • Gunners are confident after a 3-5 victory away, while WBA suffered a 0-2 loss to Liverpool.
  • Arsenal have won 4 of their 5 home games, while WBA have won twice and lost twice in 5 away games.
  • Arsenal are expected to fortify their defense with Vermaelen back in the starting line-up after 2 months, while for WBA Midfielder Paul Scharner has been ruled out with a knee ligament problem, with doubts over the fitness of striker Peter Odemwingie. 

Arsenals expected Line-up:

---------------------  Szczesny ----------------------
Jenkinson,   Mertesacker,    Vermaelen,    Santos
Walcott,     Song,     Ramsey,     Arteta,      Gervinho
------------------ Van Persie -----------------------

Bench: Fabianski, Koscielny, Rosicky, Frimpong, Djourou, Arshavin, Miyaichi.

Confident of all three points 2-0 to the Gunners.
