There could be a shock on the cards on Wednesday night and more pressure on Arteta
Dubai: West Brom are flying in the Championship having won three of their first four games of the season and will be licking their lips at the prospect of facing a misfiring Arsenal team that has lost its opening two games of the English Premier League season.
There could well be a shock on the cards on Wednesday night when the two sides meet in the second round of the Carabao Cup and if there is then there would be even more pressure on Gunners coach Mikel Arteta.
Huddersfield Town welcome Everton to the John Smith’s Stadium tomorrow night and it will be the third League Cup meeting between the sides. The first came in 1998, whilst the last was in 2010. Last season, Everton got to the Quarter-Finals before Man Utd knocked them out. And having made a bright start to the season under new boss Rafa Benitez, the Toffees will be hoping for another good cup run this time out.
There are two all-Premier League matches, as Newcastle host Burnley and Watford entertain Crystal Palace.
Aston Villa will travel to League Two Barrow while Southampton will also play fourth tier opposition, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side handed a tie at Newport County.
Defending champions Manchester City will enter in round three along with the six other Premier League sides involved in Europe this season.
