Championship outfit Brentford make the trip across London to face Arsenal in the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
Arsenal have been victorious in each of their last five games in all competitions and are overwhelming 4/13 (1.31) favourites to win this match inside 90 minutes.
The Gunners though lost to Championship opposition in Nottingham Forest last season and Brentford, seventh in the second tier, are 13/2 (7.5) to cause potentially the biggest upset of the round.
A draw, which would lead to a penalty shootout, is 5/1 (6.0).
With Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Laurent Koscielny and Konstantinos Mavropanos all injured for Arsenal, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Nacho Monreal may be forced to start again
Romaine Sawyers is a sublime advanced playmaker when Brentford control proceedings; manager Dean Smith though might feel this match instead requires a third central midfielder, so Nico Yennaris could play against his old club.
Brentford have failed to score just twice since March, but they have conceded ten goals in their six away games in all competitions. Equally, Arsenal have scored 16 goals in seven this season but only kept their first clean sheet on Sunday.
Trends point towards the hosts comfortably winning a high-scoring encounter, so Arsenal to win and both teams to score might therefore appeal at 23/20 (2.15).
Preview and predictions
Our best bet though is the 11/5 (3.2) on Arsenal to score over 3.5 goals. Their talented visitors may lack the nous and experience to execute the type of performance required, so we could see a goal glut for Emery’s men. Arsenal to score Over 3.5 goals 11/5 (3.2) for a 1pt stake with SportPesa
