Tuesday 24th October
Arsenal travel to The Hawthawns tomorrow to take on the in-form West Brom in The carling Cup 3rd round.
West Brom currently sit third in the Championship with the second best goal difference in the league, second only to Cardiff. New Boss Tony Mowbray got them off to a flying start with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Wolves at the weekend.
Arsenal aren't doing too badly either with five wins on the bounce in the league, in which time the goal has been breached only once, Darren Bent was the guilty man on that occasion. If it hadn't been for some poor refereeing I would be saying it was 7 wins on the bounce in all competitions. I'm not going to rant though.
Arsenal fans could well see Philippe Senderos, Gael Clichy and Mathieu Flamini make their return from injury. Wenger has already confirmed that Brazillian starlet Denlison will start the game. Expect him to be partnered by Flamini in the middle.
Theo Walcott and Emanuel Adebayor are expected to start up front for Arsenal which suggests that we will be playing a 4-4-2
Cesc Fabregas, Kolo Toure, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Hleb and Robin Van Persie are all in the squad and 3 of them could make the bench.
The full squad is as follows: Almunia, Poom, Hoyte, Djourou, Senderos, Clichy, Flamini, Song, Denilson, Walcott, Aliadiere, Adebayor, Toure, Fabregas, Rosicky, Hleb, Van Persie.

'As an aperitif, a little game on television. After, as a dessert, all the goals in Europe on television again!'
Wenger will field a stronger than usual squad in this competition with the full line up in Simmo's match preview.
Should the little speed merchant start the game he'll look to impress both domestic and national coaches in the hope of more regular first team football. The boy is like Billy Whizz on speed.
They have players and they will try to score.
Oh wait, he's moved hasn't he. Ok then, that geezer who scores all the goals.
