Arsenal have started the season in blistering form, racing to the top of the Premier League table. However, they slumped to their first defeat of the campaign last time out in the league, losing 3-1 to Manchester United before beating FC Zurich in the Europa League. Their second match in that competition was postponed, meaning the Gunners have had quite a gap between games.
Brentford have had even longer off the pitch. Their last match was a very impressive 5-2 victory over Leeds on September 3. It was their second big win of the season, having previously beaten Manchester United 4-0. Indeed, Thomas Frank’s team have lost just one game so far. They have been defeated in just one of their last 17 league London derbies played at home and will fancy their chances of upsetting Arsenal. Furthermore, they have won five of the last six home meetings with the north London side.
Mikel Arteta will once again be without summer signing Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is back on the injury list with a calf issue picked up during training. However, Thomas Partey is available once again. Christian Norgaard and Ethan Pinnock are missing for the home side again until after the international break. However, Sergi Canos is on the bench and may be available to play some part in the game.
Here's how they line up:
Brentford: Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Ajer, Mee, Henry; Janelt, Jensen, Dasilva; Mbeumo, Toney.
Arsenal: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka, Vieira; Saka, Martinelli, Jesus.
This promises to be an exciting match. Only Erling Haaland-inspired Man City have netted more times than the Bees so far. With the likes of Gabriel Jesus in their lineup, Arsenal always pose a goal threat, too.
After the lengthy gap between matches will these teams be rusty or rested and raring to go? Find out by watching the Brentford vs Arsenal live stream
