West Brom and Sheffield United are expected to be among the top contenders in the Championship this season.
Their Carabao Cup encounter could offer a few clues as to who has the edge in 2022/23 as the sides meet on Thursday night.
Steve Bruce still has plenty of work to do to win over the Baggies’ faithful who doubt his ability to get the most from a talented squad.
Paul Heckingbottom is also under pressure to make the most of a strong stable of players, and Manchester City prodigy James McAtee has now joined his ranks on loan.
Neither side will be too disappointed to lose this one in a bid to focus on the league, but a convincing victory for either would certainly give fans a taste of a potential promotion battle to come this season.

Our prediction: West Brom v Sheffield United
Neither side has started the season in particularly exciting form, but both squads have the quality to finish in the top six or even the automatic places. West Brom have been hard to beat so far and United may have some trouble cracking them. This one could go the distance to penalties.
