The teams with the 19th and 14 Premier League places will take place late Saturday night when West Brom welcomed Arsenal to the Hawthorns

Kieran Tierney put the dominant Gunners in the lead in the first half when he made an adorable exertion on his weaker foot in a rolled up house as the Baggies all looked at sea

If the first was good, the second was even better when Alexandre Lacazette stopped off before Emile Smith-Rowe fed Bukayo Saka to double the away team’s lead

Follow Sportsmail’s CIAN CHEESBROUGH for live EPL coverage of West Brom v Arsenal, including scores, line-up and build-up

55 minutes: Chance! Good job by Ceballos plays in Lacazette who turns it around Johnstone but the angle is too tight and the goalkeeper blocks so Albion can clear

54 minutes: After a good spell from West Brom, Furlong hits Robinson’s ball, but his header goes far past the goal

The defender has flown in and Tierney has taken the brunt of it and is currently down with his head down. Fortunately, he’s up and continues to play

51 minutes: Arsenal carves West Brom open again when Bellerin clears right, but his cross is hit by Johnstone

At the other end, Gallgher tries to collect the ball in the Arsenal box, but is thrown out of play by Rob Holding

50 minutes: West Brom shows a little more impetus here, which will try to force the problem a little more

48 minutes: West Brom has the ball in the net, but he’s offside. Pereira goes through and his target hits the post before Robinson whips home

47 minutes: Snow is still falling at the Hawthorns, and it looks like the groundskeeper is busy clearing the lines

45 minutes: We’re on the road again. We expected a reaction from Big Sam and it has come

He may not have made it on the points list, it was another great portrayal from Emile Smith-Rowe

Everything Arsenal did well came through him, and his connection to Bukayo Saka seems to have been born in the academy

45 2 minutes: Arsenal will try to score again before half time as they can smell blood

Yet another slick move cannot be fully completed and stays at 2-0 if we take the break while Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka are on the game report in the West Midlands

44 minutes: Save! Lacazette would do well to find space on the line, and Johnstone is saving up from a tight corner

43 mins: West Brom have had a little more fun with the ball lately as they’re looking for a pick-me-up before halftime

Semi Ajayi, who had way too much space, but his header flashes far

Diangana hits another light cross that Leno can catch. Then Arsenal can play far too easily and Johnstone has to come out to collect another ball

36 minutes: A rare chance to attack Albion who has a couple of long throws in the box

32 minutes: This is the easiest game Arsenal has played in a while You cut the Bagghies at will

Tierney wins a corner that is cleared, but another good move sees Smith-Rowe feed Lacazette and the Frenchman’s deflated pass is tipped by Johnstone

29 minutes: What a nice second that is! It was a bit more like the old arsenal! Lacazette feeds Smith-Rowe, who plays quietly in Saka and shoots into an empty net

27 mins: West Brom reaction required after going back down Robinson is still doing good holding the ball up and needs people like Pereira and Diangana to help him

The left-back forged a cross and cuts his weaker right foot to bend a nice blow past Johnstone. West Brom conceded another goal in the first half

21 minutes: Chance for West Brom! West Brom pause and Phillips goes through with only Leno to hit!

The captain shoots straight at the goalkeeper and it is put away.The Baggies remind Arsenal of their danger during the break

20 minutes: Bellerin clears it to the right, which turns out to be a useful plan at the moment. West Brom clarifies it even after attempts

A moment later they are going down the other flank and O’Shea needs to be in hand to keep Lacazette from knocking home. Baggies now look a little stretched out

18 minutes: An almost complete copy of the previous chance! Saka cuts into it one more time and delivers a gorgeous ball into it, but it’s just too far out of Aubameyang’s reach

16 minutes: Chance! A nice ball from Ceballos finds Saka in the lower right. The young winger cuts in and shoots what could have been a cross or a shot and Aubameyang can’t quite hit it

The striker could have collided with the post there and should have done it to be finished

14 minutes: Ceballos delivers, but Robinson comes in first. Johnstone can only hit the looping ball clearly, but Tierney shoots a shot wide

Saka takes the delivery, but it is deleted It is recycled and The Gunners have a free kick in a promising position after Gallgher fouled Smith-Rowe

9 mins: Robinson has done well holding the ball for the Baggies so far in a way they haven’t done in previous games

7 mins: A hopeful cross from Mari finds no one and a West Brom kick ensues The delivery must be better than tonight and Alladryce is expected to set up an organized West Brom defense

5 mins: Robinson is good at winning the ball in the attacking half and allows Conor Gallagher to score the cross It’s cleared

3 minutes: save and block! Aubameyang whips a ball with his left foot for Bellerin to hit the right, and Johsntone saves well Follow-up is blocked by a West Brom body and gone

2 mins: West Brom appears to start positively as Calum Robinson chases a ball over the top of Darnell Furlong

0 minutes: false start The referee brings it back to restart kick-off but we are definitely on our way now

0 minutes: The away side gets us going both sides tonight in their usual home outfits

We’re almost ready to go to the Hawthorns So take your chosen drink and make yourself comfortable

West Brom has a daunting task ahead of them, but they will find comfort in their past home meetings in the past

A great one for all neutrals except West Brom fans who are now six points ahead of safety

If Allardyce needed a reminder of how great his job at West Brom was, the last game against Leeds did just that

The new manager has not withheld criticism of his players after the 5-0 home defeat and is demanding an answer tonight

The Baggies boss prided himself on being Arsenal’s bogey team while in charge of Bolton So it’s a chance to renew this tonight

Last season’s £ 27 million summer signing from St Ettiene has yet to be used by Mikel Arteta and seems ready to do whatever it takes to get a move in January

As any commentator / quiz master has probably told you, the Hawthorns is the tallest stadium in the country, and the snow is on!

Hello and welcome to Sportsmail’s live coverage of West Brom versus Arsenal in the Premier League

Mikel Arteta’s men have had a miserable season so far, but ended 2020 on a high note and will look to score three straight wins to start the new year

With Brighton currently losing to Wolves, a first win for Sam Allardyce, who is in charge of the Baggies, would see them close the vulnerability on two points
