West Brom vs Arsenal: Carabao Cup – LIVE!

Arsenal are in desperate need of a result as they visit West Brom in the second round of the Carabao Cup tonight.

The Gunners have endured a disappointing start to the new season: 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 so far in the Premier League.

The Gunners need 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.

Aaron Ramsdale makes his Arsenal debut as Martin Odegaard also comes in following his permanent deal from Real Madrid. Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also starts as Nuno Tavares makes his full debut with Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac also coming in.

With kick-off at 8pm BST, follow all the action LIVE with Simon Collings at The Hawthorns!
