Brentford and Arsenal face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Gtech Community Stadium. When these two teams faced off on February 19th it was Arsenal that secured the 2-1 victory.
Arsenal comes into this game sitting in second place in the standings, having picked up 15 points so far this season. Arsenal had a perfect start to the season heading into their last game against Manchester United. The defense really struggled in the last game, giving up three goals, and that led to the two-goal defeat. Arsenal had a midweek Europa League against FC Zurich, and they were able to win 2-1. One issue for Arsenal is they are dealing with a ton of injuries heading into this game. Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny are both still dealing with injuries, and they won’t be able to go in this game. Thomas Partey is getting healthier and there is a chance that he could go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Brentford who sits in 9th place in the standings having picked up nine points. In the last game against Leeds United, Brentford scored five goals, and that was enough to secure an easy win. Ivan Toney had the hat trick, scoring in the 30th, 42nd, and 58th minutes. Brentford is also banged up heading into this game. Christian Norgaard and Ethan Pinnock are both banged up, and they won’t be able to go in this game. Josh Dasilva is also expected to move into the starting lineup against the team he spent his first 12 years with.
Brentford’s offense has been strong heading into this game, and Arsenal’s defense looked awful in the last game. In this game, Brentford is going to attack the Arsenal defense, and they will score two or three goals. Arsenal might get on the board with a goal, but they are going to lose their second game in a row. Back Brentford on the money line to pull off the huge victory.
