West Brom vs Arsenal: Carabao Cup preview and predictions

Mikel Arteta’s squad has been hit by a Covid-19 outbreak along with a spate of injuries, and defeats to both Brentford and Chelsea leave them pointless for the new Premier League season so far.

The Gunners badly need a result to turn the mood around after Emirates fans greeted the players with boos at both half-time and full-time against Chelsea, and a cup tie against lower-league opposition sounds like the ideal game to get one.

The problem for Arteta is that Arsenal travel to in-form West Brom, who sit second in the Championship and will fancy their chances against a weakened Gunners team.

Date, kick-off time and venue

West Brom vs Arsenal is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off tonight – Wednesday, August 25, 2021.

The match will be played at The Hawthorns.

West Brom vs Arsenal prediction

Arsenal badly need a win, but have a number of players out – so this game will be a balancing act between getting a result, and giving players valuable minutes early in the season.

The Gunners should just shade this, but it could be a tough one.
