West Bromwich Albion Preview – Can the Baggies make it four wins on the spin?

Valerien Ismael did a remarkable job at Barnsley last season, taking the Tykes from the cusp of the bottom three to the play-offs. After Sam Allardyce left The Hawthorns at the end of last term, the West Bromwich Albion board moved quickly to bring Ismael to the West Midlands.

Just like he did at Oakwell last year, Ismael has hit the ground running. West Brom have taken ten points from their opening four Championship games, winning three in a row after opening up with a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth. Over the past couple of weeks, the Baggies have beaten the likes of Luton Town, Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers in successive fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1325 GMT, Tuesday 24 August)

In-form West Brom will fancy their chances of securing a fourth league and cup victory on the spin this Wednesday. The home win is priced at 11/4.

Arsenal Preview – Will the Gunners book their spot in next round?

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal had a poor year last time around, with the club failing to secure European football for the first time in two decades. The Gunners finished in eighth spot with just 61 points to their name, winning 18, losing 13 and drawing seven.

Arsenal finished strong last term but have kicked off this season with back-to-back Premier League defeats. On the opening weekend, the Gunners lost 2-0 to Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium. They were then outclassed by Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium last Sunday, with Romelu Lukaku and Reece James netting in a comfortable 2-0 Blues victory.
