Head-to-Head


Brentford have a 5-4 advantage against Arsenal in 13 meetings with four draws. 

Brentford Form


Brentford won four of their six pre-season friendlies. The Bees recorded wins against Wimbledon (1-0), Borehamwood (2-0), Watford (3-1) and held Man United to a 2-2 draw at home. 

Thomas Frank’s side beat Valencia 2-1 at home in their final friendly. New signing Frank Oneya and Ethan Pinnock scored as Brentford recorded a fifth home win in six matches. 

Brentford Injuries & Team News


Ivan Toney is likely to start, despite a recent injury. Midfielder Josh Dasilva is ruled out. 

Arsenal Form 


Arsenal had a poor pre-season, losing three and drawing one of their friendlies. 

The Gunners lost 2-1 away at Hibernian before Eddie Nketiah salvaged a late goal in a 2-2 draw with Rangers.

Mikel Arteta’s side then lost 2-1 at home to Chelsea and fell to a 1-0 away loss against Spurs. 

Arsenal Injuries & Team News


Centre backs Gabriel and Rob Holding are ruled out. New signing Ben White should partner Pablo Mari in defence. 

Midfielder Thomas Partey unavailable with an ankle injury. 

Bukayo Saka is unlikely to start due to a lack of match fitness.

Verdict

Brentford are in excellent form at home. They will provide a tough test for an out of form Arsenal, who are missing key players. I am backing a score draw.
