Brentford vs Arsenal: Carabao Cup prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, odds today

Arsenal head to Brighton in the Carabao Cup looking to avoid back-to-back third-round exits.

The Gunners were confidently knocked out by Brighton at this stage last season and face a tricky trip to the west of London fearing the same fate.


Brentford, though, are licking their wounds after a rare home defeat last time out against Everton but Thomas Frank will have his players charged up for a huge cup derby under the lights.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brentford vs Arsenal is scheduled for a 7.45pm BST kick-off tonight on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.

The match will take place at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brentford vs Arsenal prediction

This should be a really intriguing derby, against a team able to exploit possible weaknesses in Arsenal’s midfield.

But, as stated above, I expect both teams to make changes and the Gunners have the greater strength in depth.

Arsenal to win, 3-1 in normal time.
