Brentford vs Arsenal Preview – Prediction, how to watch & potential line-ups

Did Chelsea miss out on a chance to sign Emile Smith Rowe?

Arsenal will be looking to maintain their top position in the Premier League table when they take on Brentford this Sunday at the Gtech Community Stadium. 

Thomas Frank’s side have made a good start to the new season and are currently sitting pretty in the top half of the table. 

They claimed a huge 4-0 victory over Manchester United but went on a three game winless run in the English top-flight. 

However, the Bees ended their poor run in emphatic fashion earlier this month when they stunned Leeds United 5-2 at their home turf. 

Ivan Toney, who has earned a call-up to the England squad for September’s Nations League matches, scored a hat-trick while Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo were also on the scoresheet. 

Arsenal, on the other hand, will enter Sunday’s fixture on the back of a 2-1 victory over FC Zurich in the Europa League. 

They are one of the top favourites to win the European competition this season as that provides another route to Champions League football for them. 

Mikel Arteta’s side have also made an impressive start to their Premier League campaign. 

They picked up five wins on the trot before suffering a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.  

Antony scored the opening goal on his debut before Marcus Rashford grabbed a brace to register a comfortable victory for the Red Devils. 

Match Preview 


The West London side enjoyed a good season in the Premier League following their promotion from the Championship in 2021. They finished 13th in the table with 11 points away from the relegation zone. 

The Bees have also made a good start this season and are currently eighth in the league standings. They have struck an incredible 15 goals so far, with 10 of them coming on their own turf. 


Arsenal have met Brentford 15 times in the past, with the Gunners emerging victorious on five occasions. While the Bees have won six times, with four games ending in draws. 

Mikel Arteta’ side lost the away fixture 2-0 to Brentford last season but they responded with a 2-1 success at home.  

Team News 

Brentford will be hoping to have Sergi Canos, who has yet to make an appearance this season due to a hamstring injury, back in the team on Sunday. While Christian Norgaard and Ethan Pinnock are expected to sit out the upcoming game at the Gtech Community Stadium. 

Arsenal, on the other hand, have several injury issues at the moment, with Reiss Nelson, Mohamed Elneny, Emile Smith Rowe and Cedric Soares all currently sidelined. While Oleksandr Zinchenko has also picked up a knock and is set for a two-week absence. 

However, Thomas Partey has returned to training and he is expected to be available for Sunday’s match.

Brentford vs Arsenal Potential line-ups

Brentford vs Arsenal Prediction

With Zinchenko currently sidelined, Arsenal’s defence looks a little shaky. Therefore, we expect Brentford to score at least a goal against the Gunners on Sunday. 

However, considering the quality of the two sides, Mikel Areta’s side is likely to pick up full points from the upcoming Premier League fixture.
