Live broadcast West Bromwich Albion! Carabao Cup

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

The Gunners suffered a disappointing start to the new season: Mikel ArtetaHis team has struggled with the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus alongside a string of injuries, and defeats to both Brentford and Chelsea have left them futile so far in the Premier League.

Arsenal need a change of mood after Emirates fans booed players at both halves and full time against Chelsea, and the cup draw against the lower league rivals looks like the perfect match to get one.

Arteta’s problem is that Arsenal travel to in-form West Bromwich Albion, who are second in the tournament and will have their chances against a weak Arsenal side.

Aaron Ramsdale made his Arsenal debut with Martin Odegaard also coming in after his permanent contract from Real Madrid. Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also starts with Nuno Tavares making his debut with Calum Chambers, as does Mohamed Elneny and Sid Kolasinac.

With the match kicking off at 8pm BST, catch all the action live with Simon Collings at The Hawthorns!
