Brentford vs. arsenal EPL 18 Sep 2022 Gtech Community Stadium will be an exciting match to watch. These two teams are among the top in the league and are sure to put on a good show. Brentford has been on a hot streak lately, winning their last 5 matches. Arsenal, on the other hand, has been struggling as of late, only winning 1 of their last 5 matches.

Arsenal travel to Brentford on Sunday in their first match since beating Zurich in the Europa League last Thursday. The Gunners have not played a league match since being defeated at Old Trafford and will be trying to maintain their lead in the Premier League rankings.

Meanwhile, Brentford has had a solid start to the season, currently sitting in eighth place in the league, with only one setback coming at the hands of local rivals Fulham. They will also be encouraged by the news that star striker Ivan Toney has been called up to the England squad for the first time, which might serve as motivation for the striker, who has already scored five goals in six games this season.

The Gunners last visited Brentford in the opening game of the 2021/22 season, when they suffered a memorable 2-0 defeat. This was Brentford’s first league game, but both sides have progressed much since then, so we should be in for a thrilling encounter on Sunday.

Brentford Team News and Tactics

Brentford :

Thomas Frank will be eager to put his club through its paces in a different formation than he has used this season. Brentford have adopted a more offensive 4-3-3 formation this season, departing from their more pragmatic and defensive tactics of last season.

Frank was able to transition into the new style with the help of a few key players, and the results have been great thus far. The Brentford manager is unlikely to make wholesale changes from the team that defeated Leeds United two weeks ago, although there may be some.

Christian Norgaard and Ethan Pinnock are anticipated to miss the rest of the season until after the international break. Sergi Canos is questionable for fitness, although he could make the matchday squad. Former Arsenal academy star Josh Dasilva might be in line to replace Shandon Baptiste, though he will face competition from Frank Onyeka.

Meanwhile, Keane Lewis-Potter will most likely be replaced in the starting eleven by Yoane Wissa, with Wissa presenting more of a danger in the final third than Lewis-Potter. In the top three, he will be joined by Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney. Saman Ghoddos, Vitaly Janelt, and Mathias Jensen might form Frank’s midfield three.

Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Ben Mee, Henry; Jensen, Janelt, Ghoddos; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa


Arsenal are still dealing with the fallout from their recent injury woes, with up to four players set to miss the trip to Brentford. Mohamed Elneny and Reiss Nelson are both out with serious injuries, and there is no word on when Emile Smith Rowe will return.

There are conflicting reports about Oleksandr Zinchenko. During his pre-match press conference, Arteta did not reveal any injury concerns, but Ukraine has withdrawn their captain from the international squad due to an injury.

Meanwhile, there have been conflicting claims over Ben White’s fitness, with numerous sources claiming the defender is out with an injury. Arteta, once again, would not confirm such reports, implying that the English defender, who did not receive an England call-up, will start against the Bees.

Thomas Partey’s recent return to fitness has given the team a boost. The Ghanaian international was possibly in contention for the now-canceled Everton match last Saturday, which means he might start against Brentford on Sunday. If this occurs, Albert Sambi Lokonga may be forced to return to the bench.

There won’t be many changes to the frontline, with all players except Smith Rowe fresh and ready to go. Arsenal are anticipated to field Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli, with Gabriel Jesus leading the line against Brentford.

Ramsdale; Ben White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus are the most likely starters (4-2-3-1).

Prediction Brentford vs. Arsenal:

Arsenal 1-2 Brentford
Arsenal’s defense has been strong this season, and the goals conceded have been due to errors. Mikel Arteta is well aware of the threat Brentford pose with their attacking lineup and will be ready to tighten the screws at the back. But Arsenal hasn’t kept a clean sheet in four games in all competitions, and they might continue the trend against the Bees.

Brentford have nine points from six games, despite not facing an opponent of Arsenal’s caliber thus far. It will be a significant challenge for Thomas Frank’s team to replicate their performance from the previous season. However, this Arsenal team is different and remains the favorite to win three points on Sunday. Arsenal will win 2-1, according to the Hard Tackle.

Conclusion Brentford vs. Arsenal:
Brentford vs arsenal EPL 18 Sep 2022 Gtech Community Stadium is sure to be an exciting match. Brentford is in great form and will be looking to continue their winning ways. Arsenal will be looking to turn things around and get back to their winning ways.
