Arsenal made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League on Sunday evening with a 3-1 home win over West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium.
West Bromwich Albion has been relegated from the Premier League for the fifth time after a defeat at Arsenal.
Sam Allardyce’s side was already virtually down but their return to the Championship is now confirmed, with the Baggies sitting 10 points from safety with three games remaining.
Emile Smith Rowe volleyed a smart opener from Bukayo Saka’s cross in the 29th minute after Arsenal had stemmed the visitors’ promising start.
Nicolas Pepe made West Brom’s task even more difficult six minutes later when he cut in from the right and curled into the top corner to double Arsenal’s lead.
Matheus Pereira gave the visitors hope, running from his half to score a superb individual goal with 23 minutes remaining.
But it was not enough to stop West Brom from suffering a joint-record fifth Premier League relegation, with Willian adding a late third for Arsenal from a free-kick.
Victory means the Gunners, who were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday, do at least still have a mathematical chance of playing European football next term.
