West Bromich Albion-Arsenal Betting Preview: Expect an early goal at the Hawthorns

The Baggies host an in-form Gunners side this evening in the Capital One Cup, with our tipster Hugh Wilson backing an early goal
Fresh off the back of wins at the weekend, Arsenal and West Brom meet in the Capital One Cup, with both sides coming into this match in confident mood.

Arsene Wenger's side make their first appearance this season in the Capital One Cup after gaining a bye in the last round, with Steve Clarke's side breezing past Newport County in a 3-0 win at the Hawthorns in the second round.

Arsenal come into this match after recording their seventh straight win in all competitions at the weekend. Wenger's side saw of a spirited Stoke City team to run out 3-1 winners and put them on top of the Premier League.

After starting the season with a loss at home to Aston Villa, Arsenal have been in unstoppable form, beating the likes of Fenerbahce, Tottenham Hotspur and Marseille.

Despite Wenger being likely to bring in a few new faces this evening, Betway price them at even money (2.00) to carry on their winning run.

West Brom recorded their first league win of the season at the weekend, cruising past Sunderland at home in a 3-0 win. Their only previous victory this season had come in the Capital One Cup, with Clarke's men recording draws away at Everton and Fulham.

The Baggies had been poor at home in the league before the win against Sunderland, losing to both Swansea and Southampton. Betway price them as outsiders tonight at 13/5 (3.60) to progress in 90 minutes. The same firm prices the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

Both sides have been involved in matches where we have seen early goals in recent weeks. A bet that stands out in this match is a goal before the 30th minute at 7/10 (1.70) with Betway which is a fantastic price when you consider it would have paid out in five of Arsenal's last six matches.

With this bet also landing in West Brom's last four fixtures, it's certainly worth taking advantage of this price and backing an early goal.
