Match Thread: Arsenal vs. West Brom

Last time at the Emirates this season, y'all. - Shaun Botterill

The penultimate game of the season, 4th place is wrapped up, and oh, does Arsenal have a surprise for you.

Welcome to Week 37! As you likely know by now, Arsenal's wrapped up Champions League football by virtue of Manchester City beating Everton yesterday, so what they do or don't do against West Brom today won't impact that. Third place is still in play, though, but Arsenal needs help from Chelsea's opponents. If Arsenal wins its remaining two games, and Chelsea lose its remaining two games (against Norwich today, fighting for its very Prem lives, and against the Vincent Tans next week, already headed back to the Championship in their "lucky red" jerseys), third will be theirs. If Chelsea gets just a point, Chelsea will secure at least third (unless Arsenal can make up a massive goal difference in two matches), though they still have their hopes set on first.

Time: 8:30 am ET, 7:30 am my house, 5:30 am at Paul's house

Place: Emirates in real life, NBCSN via TV magic

Gunnersaurus: In effect

The lineups:

DIABY SIGHTING! DIABY ON THE BENCH! I'll be concerned very soon here about no Ramsey anywhere in the 18, as well as with a Gibbs injury that seems to be lingering, but Diaby's back!

See you in the comments! Go, Arsenal! Go, Norwich!
