Arsenal puts six goals past West Brom in Carabao Cup win, as pressure is temporarily lifted from Arteta

Arsenal returned to winning ways on Wednesday night after beating Westbromwich Albion 6-0 to progress to the next round of the Carabao Cup, thereby giving manager Mikel Arteta a sigh of relief.

The Gunners, winning for the first time this season, scored six goals against a much changed Westbrom side with Aubameyang bagging a hat-trick in his first start of the season. Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka, and Alexandre Lacazette also got themselves on the scoresheet.

Before this huge win on Wednesday night, Arsenal has played their openers against Brentford and Chelsea without their star striker and captain Aubameyang, who tested positive for Covid-19 before the season started though he came off the bench in the Gunner's 2-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Yesterday's win might be a confidence booster for Arteta's players, yet their biggest test so far this season will come against Manchester City next weekend, as they would hope to upset Guardiola's high flying side for their first League win of the season.

Do you think the Gunners would be able to earn their first points against Manchester City or would they wait a while longer.
