West Brom Vs Arsenal Prediction, Odds And Team News

The second round of the Carabao Cup sees Arsenal travel to Championship side West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday evening. 

After a dismal start to the Gunners’ Premier League campaign, Mikel Arteta is likely to make changes to his out-of-form side for the trip to the Midlands. 

Both sides have had contrasting starts to the new season, with West Brom unbeaten in their opening four league games and second in the table, while Arsenal are second from bottom after two defeats from two matches.

The Baggies came out on top with a statement 4-0 victory over also-relegated Sheffield United last time out, and Arsenal will need be wary of their attacking threat going forward.


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal to get your teeth stuck into.

West Brom vs Arsenal betting tips & predictions

West Bromwich Albion are 13/2 to win, with Arsenal priced at 4/9 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 10/3.

Prediction: 2-1 (22/1)

Under/Over Goals: Over 3.5 (2/1)

Advert

Interestingly, there have been four goals in the last two meetings between the sides and over 3.5 goals looks like a good way to go in tonight’s game. 

West Brom have been scoring for fun recently, however, their defence hasn’t exactly been watertight and Arsenal should have a number of chances against a lower flight side - or at least you’d like to think so, anyway.

Anytime Goalscorer: Callum Robinson (3/1)

Advert

Callum Robinson showed some of his qualities during last season’s Premier League campaign and has already made an impact for West Brom in the early stages of this season.

The 26-year-old already has three to his name this term and is likely to cause problems for a shaky Arsenal back-line with his electric pace.

Winner of Tie: West Bromwich Albion (11/4)

When these two sides met at the Hawthorns earlier this year, Arsenal cruised to a 4-0 Premier League win, however, that was then and times have changed.

Following an embarrassing opening day defeat to newly-promoted Brentford, the north London outfit are no longer a team to be feared and, because of that, we’re backing the Baggies to keep adding to the Gunners’ misery.

West Brom team news

West Brom defensive stalwart Matt Clarke is still nursing a hamstring injury and will miss tonight’s game as a result.

Elsewhere, Adam Reach and Grady Diangana are both options for change on the left-hand side, while Cedric Kipre will be hopeful of earning some minutes in defence. 


Arsenal team news

Arsenal welcomed back Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from a bout of coronavirus at the weekend, but Willian and Ben White are still affected.

Arteta’s woes don’t stop there, either, with Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Magalhaes, Hector Bellerin and Thomas Partey all still out injured.

New signing Aaron Ramsdale should feature for the first time in Arsenal colours tonight, while Reiss Nelson and former West Brom loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles should be in line for starts, too.
