FT: Conflicting banners at the Emirates, with some Arsenal fans pleading for Wenger to leave, while some show their support.

FT: Arsenal 2-0 West Brom. Two first half goals from Alexis Sanchez were enough as Arsenal dominated West Brom, never letting up as they worked their typical magic, with the visitors unable to provide any opposition. The result pushes Arsenal up to 3rd in the table with 63 points, ahead of Manchester City on 61.
...
90+2' The Gunners are ending the game brightly, with Campbell chipping a ball forward to Ramsey, but it goes out for a goal kick.
...
90' Two minutes of added time.
...
90' The Emirates crowd is leaving in droves, with an announcement that the Piccadilly line of the London Underground is closed.
...
...
87' Intricate football by Arsenal ends with Campbell finding Giroud in the box, but his shot from close range is saved by Foster. The duo combine moments later yet again, with Giroud nearly connecting with Campbell's cross.
...
86' Campbell is straight into the action, as he unleashes a low shot across goal from the left that goes narrowly wide.
...
85' Mesut Ozil comes off for Joel Campbell
...
85' Alexis Sanchez comes off to a standing ovation, to be replaced by Theo Walcott.
...
83' Arsenal have had 70% of the possession so far. Not much of a surprise there.
...
...
82' Alex Iwobi goes off to warm applause, to be replaced by Francis Coquelin
...
...
79' Iwobi steals the ball in midfield and drives at the West Brom goal. His Arsenal teammates make great runs on either side of him, but the youngster attempts to take on the visitor's defence all on his own, thus wasting the chance.
...
77' 2-0 and Arsene Wenger still wants more

...
74' Elneny is down with an injury and is clutching his sides. He's truly adapted to the Arsenal way now.
...
73' WHAT A MISS! The delivery from the left falls to Rondon at the far post, and all he has to do is tap home into an empty net, but somehow manages to clear the ball
...
72' West Brom have a corner. Can they make this count?
...
70' Lovely football from Arsenal. Ozil plays in Iwobi from the left, and his pass across the pitch is dummied by Sanchez, allowing Ramsey to find some space on the right edge of the box and shoot, but his strike goes over.
...
67' Arsenal try to walk the ball into the net! Sanchez has a touch yards from the net, but opts to play in Ozil, whose shot is charged down. Moments later, Iwobi plays a lovely first time ball to Ozil in the box, but the German takes a touch and West Brom clear.
...
...
65' McClean comes off for Gardner
...
64' Arsenal have a corner after a spell of pressure. Ozil to take it. The delivery eventually finds its way to Giroud, who is penalized for a foul
...
62' Another penalty shout! Elneny's ankles are clipped outside the box, but he takes a step and tumbles forward into the box. The referee waves play on again.
...
59' The Emirates screams for a penalty as Iwobi dives in the box, but the referee is wise to it, but does not book the player.
...
55' West Brom have looked a much better side in the second half, although Arsenal don't look like they have gone down a gear. This is set up to be a wonderful half of football.
...
51' Dawson sends in a great cross to the far post, where McClean rushes in and sends a header towards goal, but Cech has his positioning right. As Arsenal counter later, Sanchez dinks a ball to Ozil in the box, but the ball just evades the German's head.
...
49' West Brom have a generous free-kick after Berahino goes down easily under Koscielny's attentions. Giroud clears from the delivery into the box.
...
48' Giroud and Iwobi break from a counter, with the latter playing in the Frenchman on the left edge of the box, and Giroud shoots an accurate shot across goal, but Foster gets down well to gather the ball.
...
46' West Brom get us underway!
...
HT: Tony Pulis rings in the changes - Rondon and Olsson come on for Sandro and Chester
...
The second half is minutes away, as the teams exit the tunnel.
...
Here's Alexis scoring from his free-kick. Giroud and Mertesacker formed part of the wall and ducked out of the way in time. Assist?

...
HT: Arsenal fans might do well to remember that this is the same side that went 2-0 up away to West Ham and proceeded to throw away the win, ultimately drawing 3-3. Although I doubt if Saido Berahino and Andy Carroll have much in common, so the Gunners might be safe.
