Brentford vs Arsenal EFL Cup live score, updates, lineups, result from Carabao Cup third round

Brentford play host to in-form Arsenal in an all-Premier League Third Round tie in the Carabao Cup.

Both sides bowed out at this stage last season, with Arsenal losing at home to Brighton & Hove Albion, and Thomas Frank’s Brentford’s knocked out on penalties by EFL League Two side Gillingham.

Frank and his opposite number Mikel Arteta will be pushing to prevent that happening again in tonight’s clash despite both managers’ primary focus being on the Premier League this weekend.

Squad rotations are an inevitability for top-tier sides in the Carabao Cup, and the hosts’ squad depth will be tested, with Arsenal able to call on international names in their second string.

The Sporting News will be following the Brentford vs. Arsenal Carabao Cup match live, providing score updates, commentary, and highlights as they happen.

Frank is missing a string of key players through injury, with Ben Mee, Josh Dasilva, Rico Henry and Kevin Schade all out, and Ivan Toney still suspended for the Bees.
