Gareth McAuley will miss the visit of Arsenal after being red carded late in the Baggies' 2-0 loss to Manchester United in Week 12.
With McAuley out, the logical candidates to fill the gap in the center of defense are James Chester and Jonas Olsson. Chester arrived for a pretty penny over the summer and has barely seen the pitch since despite it being Tony Pulis' decision to buy him. Olsson has figured when healthy but that is never a sure thing minute-to-minute in recent years. The loss of McAuley means that West Brom will be taking a hit in terms of they physicality of their defense which might point to Chester as the selection. The opposite side of the argument is that Chester spoke out over the international break about his frustration at not playing and Pulis may not want to reward that sort of behavior. Nov 20 - 1:19 PM
