West Brom vs Arsenal: Betting preview ahead of huge League Cup clash

Mikel Arteta is under pressure to get a result when Arsenal take on West Brom in the second round of the League Cup at the Hawthorns on Wednesday night.


Mikel Arteta is under pressure to get a result when Arsenal take on West Brom in the second round of the League Cup at the Hawthorns on Wednesday night.

The Gunners have endured their worst start to a Premier League season having tasted back-to-back 2-0 defeats to Brentford and Chelsea so head into tomorrow’s cup game sitting in the bottom three.

With an ominous trip to champions Manchester City up next in the league, Arteta will be desperate to use the League Cup to claim a morale-boosting win when they take on West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Arsenal are playing in the second round of the competition for the first time in 25 years after failing to qualify for Europe this season and an early exit will only pile even more pressure on a beleaguered Arteta’s shoulders.

A growing number of disgruntled Arsenal fans are calling for the club to part ways with the Spaniard so the last thing Arteta needs is losing to a Championship side in the League Cup tomorrow night.

Betting odds

Arsenal are one of the most popular clubs in the world and they attract a lot of attention so there is sure to be plenty of betting action on this game. Those who do decide to gamble should make sure they choose a reputable bookmaker and our Thai visitors can choose from a number of 안전놀이터 gambling sites before placing their bets.

Despite their woeful form lately, Arsenal are still the bookmakers favourites to win the game with best odds of 13/20 available at many betting sites. West Brom can be backed at 4/1 if you fancy a shock at the Hawthorns while the draw is on offer at 16/5.

It’s expected to be a nervy game for the Gunners as the pressure is on to respond to their opening two league defeats and West Brom away is a dangerous tie. However, we think Arsenal will have just enough to get the job done and a 2-1 away win looks good value at 13/2.

Strong Arsenal line-up?

In usual circumstances, Arteta would use the League Cup to field a weakened team full of fringe players and youngsters but he cannot afford another slip up tomorrow. Therefore, the Spaniard is being tipped to pick a strong side for this game.

Midfielder Martin Odegaard could start for the Gunners after joining from Real Madrid and you can bet on the Norwegian to have 1 or more shots on target from outside the box at odds of 9/4.

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is also in-line to make his debut having joined Arsenal from Sheffield United. You can bet on Arsenal to win with Ramsdale keeping a clean sheet at odds of 15/8.

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Hector Bellerin could be back in contention after recovering from a thigh injury while Kieran Tierney and Gabriel Martinelli are both fit after suffering cramp at the weekend.

Alexandre Lacazette is also available again, however, Ben White, Willian, Thomas Partey, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel remain unavailable for selection.
