A big EFL Cup casualty awaits at this early stage

The early rounds of the EFL Cup don't always attract much attention but this is a serious clash of titans as the stage goes with both West Bromich Albion and Sheffield United having their eyes on a Premier League return. It will be interesting to see how they approach the match; will they go for the win or are they all in on their league campaign?

A lot was made of Steve Bruce and West Brom last season as the former Newcastle gaffer failed to inspire a ‘new manager bounce'. They did improve towards the end of the campaign though and that's continued early this season. A win here would surely keep positive vibes flowing.

West Bromich Albion Predicted lineup – Button, Furlong, O'Shea, Ajayi, Townsend, Livermore, Molumby, Wallace, Swift, Diangana, Grant

Sheffield United have had mixed fortunes of late with a win and a loss in their first two Championship campaigns very much a continuation of their up and down pre-season. The Blades have a poor record when visiting West Brom though so will need to overcome that to advance here.

Sheffield United Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Egan, Clark, Baldock, Norrington-Davies, Ahmedhodzic, Norwood, Fleck, Berge, Ndiaye, Brewster
