EFL Cup – 1/32-finals
West Brom have 3 wins in 4 Championship games this season, and both teams have scored in 2 of their victories. Arsenal are missing a host of first-team stars, while they’re unlikely to risk their other starters given their lengthy list of absentees. The Baggies have just 1 clean sheet in 4 games this season.
West Brom are currently joint top of the Championship with Fulham and Stoke. By contrast, Arsenal have made a nightmare start to the season. They have lost their opening 2 games without scoring and time appears to be running out for Mikel Arteta. Arsenal haven’t exactly had it their own way at the Hawthorns in recent years. They have only won 1 of their last 4 matches away to West Brom so an upset is definitely plausible. But we’re backing both teams to hit the back of the net.
