Info on some of those to have missed out on a spot in Arsenal’s matchday squad to face West Bromwich Albion has been forthcoming online this evening.

West Brom showdown

Mikel Arteta’s men are currently locked in Premier League action with the Baggies at the Emirates.

The matchup, in truth, is of little importance to either side, with Arsenal’s top-6 hopes dead in the water, and Sam Allardyce’s visitors long destined for the Championship.

When all was said and done, however, the Gunners fell short, bringing a definitive end to their hopes of securing a Champions League return for next season.

Cedric misses out

One of those no doubt disappointed to have missed out once again, though, was Cedric Soares.

The Portuguese, earlier this year, appeared to have established himself as Arsenal’s first-choice right-back.

Recent weeks, however, have seen him fall heavily out of favour, with the reliable Chris Wheatley having revealed that the former Southampton man was actually in line for a return to starting duties versus West Brom, only to be unceremoniously dropped back to the bench:

Elsewhere, Reiss Nelson, who has been afforded a paltry total of 70 minutes of Premier League action thus far this season, travelled with Arteta’s squad, as a 21st man:
