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

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.
