Arsenal have had nearly 80% possession, 16 attempts on goal, but still there's no way past Ben Foster in the West Brom goal.
Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs comes off worst after a tackle on Claudio Yacob and the Gunners left-back is booked to compound his misery.
James McClean comes on for Nacer Chadli, who gets booed as he makes his exit courtesy of him having had a stint at Tottenham.
Arsenal will be having nightmares about Ben Foster if this continues. This time the West Brom keeper sticks out a leg to keep out an angled Olivier Giroud shot and it's still level.

Those Arsenal chances have woken up the home crowd. About time.

Nick Clohessy: West Brom, with all the adventure of plain toast made in a toaster that takes 20 seconds too long every single time.
Scotty: Slow, boring and predicatable. Same old really. #Arsenal

It's very interesting to see how well Tony Pulis' side are set up here.
They are so well organised and all of the West Brom players are working incredibly hard to keep this shape.Copyright: AP
