Paul Merson has warned Arsenal to expect a frustrating encounter when they take on West Brom on Monday night.
The Gunners put in an impressive performance last weekend as they drew 0-0 with Chelsea and followed that up with a League Cup victory over Doncaster.
They will be desperate to get three points in the Monday night fixture but won’t have it all their own way against the Baggies according to Merson.
‘When West Brom visit you expect it to be a hard, tight game,’ the former Arsenal midfielder told Sky Sports. ‘The Baggies will look to frustrate Arsenal and pick off set-plays where they can.’
While West Brom could prove tough opposition, Merson expects Arsenal to win the match.
‘The Gunners did very well at Chelsea, they should be proud of the way they played and the way they worked hard for each other.
