Arsenal Drop Points

Arsenal had to come from a goal behind to earn a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion in a Barclays Premiership match at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

Claudio Yacob opened the scoring for West Brom five minutes before the break, but Jack Wilshere restored parity in the second half as the points were shared.

West Brom started brightly and Saido Berahino came close to opening the scoring in the 14th minute when he saw his deflected shot form 20-yards out brilliantly saved by the keeper.

Ten minutes later and Arsenal had their first real chance on goal as Carl Jenkinson played a one-two with Olivier Giroud before the latter fired narrowly wide from the edge of the box.

In the 38th minute Aaron Ramsey was bitterly unlucky not to score has he saw a rasping 20-yard shot brilliantly parried clear by the goalkeeper.

Two minutes later and West Brom took the lead as Yacob headed home a Morgan Amalfitano cross from eight-yards out, 1-0.

At the start of the second 45 Nicolas Anelka had two great chances to double his side’s scoring. First in the 47th minute Anelka missed open goals after he was superbly set-up and left with an empty net in front of him, but he fumbled over his own feet and wasted the opportunity.

Then, five minutes later, he broke through on goal and with just the keeper to beat he pushed his shot wide of goal.

Arsenal would make West Brom pay for those misses as they levelled matters in the 62nd minute when Wilshere drove the ball home from 22-yards out, 1-1.

Neither team could find the winner as the points were shared.
