Arsenal need to have some short-term memory loss and just keep swimming after last week's shocking loss to Everton at Goodison Park. Luckily, the Gunners get to play this matchup against seventh-place Brentford. However, Brentford have qualifying for Europe in their sights and won't be a push-over. Expect this to be a tense match at the Emirates Stadium
Both teams have outperformed expectations this year. Nobody saw Arsenal contending for the Premier League crown with a side that is currently the youngest starting XI in the EPL. However, Brentford have been relatively just as impressive. They are just in their second season in the Premier League but are currently in the top half of the table and Europa League qualification is not out of reach. You definitely won't want to miss these top-half-of-the-table sides face off in the Arsenal vs Brentford live stream.

Arsenal vs Brentford preview
Arsenal comes into this game leading the Premier League, a position they've held for most of the season. Still, you'd be forgiven if it didn't feel that way after last week's 1-0 against Everton. The Gunners looked rudderless at times, and Everton managed to keep up with them for most of the game. Mikel Arteta will be hoping this was just another instance of the Gunners underwhelming on the road, and that they will be able to get a bounce-back win at home. Arsenal have only dropped points at the Emirates once this season in a 0-0 draw against the stingy defense of Newcastle United.
But Brentford should be respected coming into this game. The Bees have not lost in their last five Premier League matches and currently sit in seventh place. They are only one point behind Brighton and seven points behind fourth-place Newcastle, so the Champions League is still within reach and European football is a genuine possibility for next year. That is not an achievement that Brentford will give up lightly.
The good news for Arsenal is that Brentford's offensive prowess this season has largely come from striker Ivan Toney. The English striker has contributed 13 of Brentford's 35 goals this season, whereas the Gunners have several players in the top 20 EPL goalscorers and assist providers. While they will need to shut Toney down to secure the win, if they can, they can likely shut out the Brentford offense and then use their own offense to pick apart the Bees. If they can't though, it could be a long night in North London.
This should be an exciting game between two in-form teams having impressive seasons, so don’t miss the Arsenal vs Brentford live stream.
