Arsenal predicted lineup vs West Brom: Ramsdale and Odegaard start
Arsenal face West Brom on Wednesday in the second round of the Carabao Cup – and here is our predicted lineup for the tie…
Who is included in our predicted lineup for Arsenal for West Brom tie?
The two standout names included in our side are the two newest signings for Mikel Arteta’s men.
Aaron Ramsdale will surely get the nod in goal. The goalkeeper enjoyed a full pre-season with Sheffield United and had already featured in the Championship before his move. So he should be ready to face the Baggies.
There is also a chance that Martin Odegaard will join him in the lineup. The Norwegian’s return really needs to work out for Arteta. And this may provide a good opportunity to get him up to speed.
Arsenal could also welcome Alexandre Lacazette back. The club confirmed ahead of the game that the Frenchman is in contention after a spell with illness.
There is also a full debut for Nuno Tavares at left-back. This game presents Arteta with a good chance to rest Kieran Tierney.
Who may also feature for Gunners?
It becomes a little harder to predict Arteta’s side from there.
Pablo Mari and Rob Holding may get another chance at centre-back. Gabriel Magalhaes is only just making his way back from injury, while Ben White is still out.
Mohamed Elneny may start alongside Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park. Albert Sambi Lokonga has already established himself as a hugely important player in their Premier League side.
Elsewhere, Gabriel Martinelli and Reiss Nelson could perhaps start either side of Odegaard.
Having said that, players such as Cedric, Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will surely be in contention to start.
With that in mind, here is what our predicted lineup looks like…
