Get an added edge on your Sheffield Wednesday v Arsenal goalscorer bets for Tuesday's Capital One Cup 4th Round clash with the football betting offers at William Hill.

Sheffield Wednesday have already claimed one Premier League scalp in this season's League Cup with a 0-1 win away to Newcastle in the 3rd round and will be hoping to cause another upset when they take on Arsenal at Hillsborough. The Owls have moved into contention for a play-off berth in the Championship on the back of some decent form and are unbeaten in their last 8 matches in all competitions. Carlos Carvalhal's men were 1-2 winners away to local rivals Rotherham on Saturday and will look to give a good account of themselves against the Gunners.

Arsenal won 2-1 against Everton at the weekend to cap what Arsene Wenger described as a 'perfect week' after his side had secured a 2-0 win over German champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League a few days earlier. The Gunners are now unbeaten in 9 Premier League games and have moved into contention for the title race, but must switch thir focus to the Capital One Cup and a trip to Sheff Wed on Tuesday night.

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 from 19:45 (GMT) and is sure to appeal to both casual punters and professional gamblers alike. With Arsenal heavy favourites to get the win, plenty of punters will be bypassing the Match Odds in favour of a bet on the First Goalscorer market.

Goalscorer Second Chance

Lucas Joao and Fernando Forestieri were both on the score-sheet in Saturday's win at Rotherham and should therefore keep their places in the Sheff Wed starting XI, with the latter now on 3 goals for the season and likely to be the main attacking outlet for the Owls. Atdhe Nuhiu will be pushing for inclusion and is nother player to consider if getting a start, while attacking midfielder Lewis McGugan and left winger Marco Matias have each notched twice this season and are viable outsiders.

Arsene Wenger is likely to rotate his squad and with Olivier Giroud getting the nod against Everton, Theo Walcott could return to the lineup in his place here. The pacey 26-year-old has 4 goals in all competitions this term and will be a real handful for the home defence and could be supported by Joel Campbell on the flank. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Özil, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez are other players to think about when the team-sheets are announced.
