Arsene Wenger faces his old foe Tony Pulis as Arsenal play West Brom on Monday night.

The two managers have clashed in the past due to the different styles of football played by both teams and the Gunners could find it tough against a physical Baggies side at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger welcomes back a host of star names after resting several players for the midweek Carabao Cup win over Doncaster, with Alexandre Lacazette expected to return upfront.

“I believe he has first of all adapted to the team play, he connects well with the other players, he is disciplined, he works hard for the team and on the technical and tactical aspect I am very pleased,” said Wenger before the game.

“He still needs to adapt to the physical aspect of the Premier League and that will take a little bit of time, but on the other fronts there is no problem at all.”

The Baggies came out on top the last time the two sides met, with a double from Craig Dawson helping Pulis’s side to a 3-1 win at the Hawthorns back in March.
