Wenger Makes 1 Change: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face West Brom

Arsenal will look to keep the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table when they take on West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is a certainty to keep his place in goal with the fit-again David Ospina set for a place on the bench.
Defence: Laurent Koscielny could be a doubt after Arsene Wenger revealed the centre-back has been deeply affected by the terror attacks in Paris. However, I think we’ll still see the 30-year-old line-up alongside Per Mertesacker on Saturday.
Hector Bellerin is back in contention after recovering from a groin injury so he’s expected to take his place at right-back with Mathieu Debuchy dropping out while Nacho Monreal will keep his place on the left side of defence.
Midfield: Aaron Ramsey isn’t expected back in full training until Monday so joins Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky on the sidelines. Therefore, Santi Cazorla will continue alongside Francis Coquelin in the middle of midfield.
Attack: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains unavailable for selection as he’s yet to return to full training after missing the last three matches with a hamstring injury. With Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck still on the sidelines, Joel Campbell could keep his place on the right-wing.
Mesut Ozil should be refreshed after enjoying a break from international duty but Alexis Sanchez could be fatigued having played 180 minutes for Chile in their World Cup qualifiers. However, Arsene will have little option but to start him in attack along with Olivier Giroud.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
