Arsenal win to condemn Ajayi’s West Brom to relegation

ARSENAL defeated West Brom 3-1 on Sunday night to confirm the Baggies’ relegation from the Premier League.

Emile Smith Rowe, Nicolas Pepe and Willain all scored at the Emirares Stadium to condemn West Brom to their fifth relegation in the Premier League era.

Mathieu Pereira scored West Brom’s consolation goal.

Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi was in the West Brom side but could do nothing to stop their slide into the Championship.

Smith Rowe got Arsenal on their way with the opening goal in the 29th minute, netting off Bukayo Saka’s assist.

Ivory Coast forward Pepe extended Arsenal’s lead six minutes later, profiting from Callum Chambers’ pass.

West Brom had a glimpse of hope in the 67th minute when Pereira cut Arsenal’s lead in half but Willian had the last word.

The Brazilian forward found the inner side netting with a brilliant free-kick from about 20 yards out to seal the win in the 90th minute.

West Brom are stuck in the second from bottom position in the table with 26 points from 35 matches and are guaranteed to go down as one of the three relegated teams. The Baggies are 10 points from safety with only three matches to go.

This is the first Premier League relegation of West Brom manager Sam Allardyce’s career which has seen him handle Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle and Everton.

Arsenal gave their flagging European hopes a bit of a boost with the win as they moved to within five points of sixth-place Liverpool.
