2:59 FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Everton’s win against West Brom in the Premier League.

West Brom will be without suspended full-back Kieran Gibbs for their Carabao Cup third-round clash with Brentford.

The former Arsenal man was sent off during Saturday’s 5-2 Premier League defeat at Everton, with Baggies boss Slaven Bilic then dismissed for his protests.

Bilic made 10 changes for the second-round win over Harrogate and is likely to shuffle his pack once again.

Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher could make his debut, while experienced defender Branislav Ivanovic continues to build up his fitness and both Ahmed Hegazi (hamstring) and Kenneth

Zohore (calf) remain doubtful.

Brentford have a fully-fit squad for the trip to The Hawthorns.

Thomas Frank’s side saw off Southampton last week to set up the tie with West Brom – who pipped the Bees to Premier League promotion by two points last season.

Like West Brom, Brentford made plenty of alterations for their last cup game with six changes at St Mary’s.

This will be a fifth game in 16 days for the Championship side so Frank is likely to freshen things up.

Stat of the match: West Brom have never lost at home to Brentford in any competition, winning nine and drawing two of their 11 such games.

West Ham vs Hull City – 7.30pm kick-off

2:59 FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Arsenal’s win over West Ham in the Premier League.

Goalkeeper Darren Randolph should lead a host of changes as West Ham host Hull in the Carabao Cup.

Boss David Moyes is expected to rotate his resources again, fielding a side similar to the XI that eased past Charlton in the second round.

Manuel Lanzini, Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller could all slot in from the off, with Robert Snodgrass also likely to be involved.

Fabian Balbuena, Ben Johnson and Josh Cullen can expect to be included too, while Mark Noble could be fit after a toe issue.

Hull boss Grant McCann has his full squad available, barring Tom Eaves who continues to battle a knee injury.

McCann will take the same squad that secured a 1-0 win over Crewe to the London Stadium, but will likely make changes to his starting XI.

Matt Ingram could continue in goal, with Richie Smallwood available to captain the side.

Josh Magennis is in line to feature again up front.

Luton boss Nathan Jones is likely to rotate his side as they welcome Manchester United to Kenilworth Road for their Carabao Cup third-round clash.

The Hatters have won all four of their fixtures so far this season, with Jones making plenty of changes for the cup victories against Norwich and Reading.

Midfielder Glen Rea is in contention to feature despite coming off at half-time in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship win over Derby after complaining of light-headedness.

Former United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe could also return to the side having not made the bench at the weekend.

Dean Henderson could make his United debut with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vowing to make changes on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old academy product signed a new and improved deal until 2025 after returning from two highly-successful loan stints at Sheffield United.

Solskjaer will rotate and is looking to build sharpness after a poor 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League opener.

Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly and Henderson were unused substitutes against the Eagles, with Donny van de Beek, Odion Ighalo and Mason Greenwood coming off the bench. Jesse Lingard was conspicuous by his absence from the squad, while Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain sidelined.
