ARSENAL’S dismal start to the season will turn into a full-blown crisis if the Gunners crash out of the League Cup at West Brom tonight.
Mikel Arteta is coming under pressure after kicking off the Premier League season with successive defeats against Brentford and Chelsea.
He desperately needs a win to kickstart their season and McBookie make Arsenal 10/11 favourites to triumph inside 90 minutes.
The Baggies are 29/20 to reach the next round and some punters might fancy that as they have made a good start under new boss Valerian Ismael.
Over 2.5 goals is the same price at the same firm and that bet has come up in every West Brom game so far this term.
Steve Bruce is another boss in need of a boost with Newcastle fans on his back again after successive defeats.
They host a Burnley side who are also in poor form and I’m doubling a Magpies win with BTTS at 16/5 with McBookie.
Southampton face a tricky tie away to Newport County, who have won three of their four games to nil this season.
Those matches all ended 1-0 so it could pay to bet against goals here. Under 2.5 goals pays 10/11 at McBookie while betting against BTTS is the same price.
In the Champions League qualifiers, Dinamo Zagreb need to come out all guns blazing to overturn a 3-0 deficit against Sheriff Tiraspol.
Bruno Petkovic is their main man up front and is a tempting 11/8 at Betfair for anytime scorer.
