thumbnail Hello,

Steve Clarke’s men will be hoping to record an upset in the English League Cup when they face in-form Wenger’s side at the Hawthorns on Wednesday

Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns for an English League Cup fixture against West Bromich Albion on Wednesday evening with a squad depleted by injury. Santi  Cazorla, Abou Diaby , Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lukas Podolski, Tomas Rosicky , Yaya Sanogo and Theo Walcott will all not take part in this encounter.

The visitors have triumphed on their last four visits to the Hawthorns and will be confident going into the tie after their victories over Marseille and Stoke in the last week. Wenger’s men are outstanding favorites to win this tie. Ladbrokes back them at 21/20 (2.05) to book a ticket to the next round.

West Brom got their first Premier League win of the season on Sunday, defeating Sunderland, 3-0, after taking just two points from their first four league games. They will be backing on this to silence the north Londoners 13/5 (3.60). The draw is a 5/2 (3.50) play with the same firm.

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

Steve Clarke has injury concerns over Shane Long and Chris Brunt, who both missed the 3-0 victory over Sunderland due to knee and groin problems respectively. You can back the baggies to win either half at EVS (2.00).

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 Arsenal to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored in match at  19/20 (2.90) which is a fantastic price when you consider it would have paid out in five of Arsenal's last six matches.
