Danny Higginbotham is backing Arsenal to get back to winning ways in the Premier League with victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Emirates on Monday night.

The Gunners have made something of a mixed start to the new Premier League season but earned praise as they battled to a goalless draw with defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Arsenal have only won two of their opening five games so far this season and will be keen to get back to winning ways when they take on the Baggies next week.

And although former defender Higginbotham is backing the visitors to put up a big fight, he’s expecting Arsenal to claim all three points.

Speaking on Sky Sports News on Friday morning, Higginbotham said: “West Brom had a poor result against Brighton when they got beaten 3-1. Tony Pulis went back to basics against West Ham.

“Arsenal are going to have a lot of the ball. West Brom will hope to cause problems from set pieces.

“But I find it difficult to see anything but an Arsenal win.

“I think it will be tight but Arsenal have just got enough to get the three points.

Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League table last season but beat Chelsea to win the FA Cup for the third time in four seasons.

They kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 win over Cologne at The Emirates earlier this month after they missed out on Champions League qualification last season.
