Comments:

Final league position 2014-15: 3rd Arsenal were now unbeaten in nine Premier League meetings with West Bromwich Albion (seven wins). The Gunners had failed to score in their previous three Premier League home matches. Theo Walcott scored his third Arsenal Premier League hat-trick and had now also scored 50 Premier League goals. He also scored their previous last Premier League hat-trick against Newcastle United on 29 December 2012. Arsenal now remained unbeaten on the final day of the Premier League season since 2005 when they were beaten 2-1 at Birmingham City (eight wins). Jack Wilshire made his 100th Premier League appearance for the club.

Comments:

Final league position 2014-15: 13th West Bromwich Albion had now only won once at Arsenal in nine Premier League visits (a 3-2 victory on 25 September 2010). The last time the Baggies had now won their final Premier League game of the season was 2-0 against Portsmouth on 15 May 2005. Albion's five game unbeaten run came to an end with this defeat - the first instance of such a run since September and October 2013. West Bromwich Albion conceded four goals before half-time in a Premier League game for the first time in this game.
