Allardyce will perform an admirable job with West Brom, as he typically does with relegation-bound teams, but the pressure is all on Arteta to manage a big win here.

Arsenal simply shouldn't be losing games like this one, they shouldn't be drawing them, they should approach it with fire in the belly and win the thing.
