Arsenal Vs Brentford Premier League Football Match Score 2023

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is sweating over the fitness of two of his attackers ahead of Saturday’s Premier League London derby with Brentford. Reiss Nelson returned to full training last week but was not involved in their 1-0 loss to Everton, while Emile Smith Rowe is more of a doubt due to a fresh thigh injury.

Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Elneny are definitely out as they recover from their respective knee surgeries, although the former is now stepping up his recovery at Arsenal’s training centre.
Jesus’s continued absence means another starting role for Eddie Nketiah, who has 13 goals from his last 13 starts at the Emirates, while Martin Odegaard captains the side from the number 10 role.

Everton limited the effectiveness of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli by doubling up on Arsenal’s wide men, but the pair should be in no danger of losing their spots here, in spite of Leandro Trossard’s bright cameo at Goodison Park and Fabio Vieira’s peach of a strike in September’s win over Brentford.

Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey – who was given the green light to start following a rib injury – also had off days on Merseyside, but the pair should keep Jorginho at bay once again. Fresh from being named the Gunners’ Player of the Month for January, Oleksandr Zinchenko can expect to form an unchanged backline with Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and Aaron Ramsdale. Arsenal possible starting lineup: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus

It will be a really fascinating test for the Gunners after they suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Goodison Park last weekend. That is the first time all season they have lost a league game they were overwhelming favourites to win, so it is yet to be seen how they will react to it in what should be an even tougher game. Ahead of our game against the Bees, London Colney has been a hive of activity as our players aim to get back to winning ways following last weekend’s loss at Everton, under the watchful eye of Mikel Arteta and his coaching staff.

The exact dates and times will be confirmed in due course. We will travel to Munich for the away leg on 21/22 March and head back to Emirates Stadium the following week for the second leg. Our Gunners progressed to the quarter-finals as Group C winners, above FC Zurich, Juventus and reigning champions Lyon. This is the 15th time we’ve reached this stage of the competition. Bayern Munich came through as Group D runners-up behind Spanish giants Barcelona. This is their fifth quarter-final in six seasons.

Tickets for our UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final home match will go on sale from Thursday, February 16. Before then, you can register your early bird interest here. Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City next Wednesday appears to have all the makings of a potential Premier League classic for years to come. The match is set to pit the prospective champions against those that have been there and done it so many times before them.

Similar can be said of the management of the two sides, with the serial title winner Pep Guardiola facing off with his one time second-in-command Mikel Arteta. The Gunners currently lead their rivals by five points with a game in hand, though any slip up could see that advantage turned on its head.

That was almost the case over the previous weekend as the north London outfit lost to Everton, but were handed a favour from near neighbours Tottenham as they beat City. “No, I don’t think so, we’ve played a lot of games this season like that already,” Arteta responded when asked if his players struggled with the pressure of their situation. Brentford have not lost in their last four away matches. Bukayo Saka has assisted the most goals for Arsenal with seven. Mathias Jensen is Brentford’s biggest assister (four). Martin Odegaard is Arsenal’s top scorer with eight goals. Ivan Toney has scored 13 times for Brentford. The average number of goals in the first half in meetings between Arsenal and Brentford is 1.25.

Arsenal score 2.41 goals when playing at home and Brentford score 1.45 goals when playing away on average.
Arsenal have scored in eight of their last nine home matches.
Brentford have scored in seven of their 10 away matches in the Premier League this season.

Brentford’s last five matches have seen four wins and a draw, which is superior to Arsenal’s three wins, one draw and one defeat.
The Spaniard will be hopeful they can rise to the occasion when they face their title rivals, with a clash against Brentford coming up just before that. With some focus on the big fixture, one key decision has already been made beforehand that may change how it pans out.

That’s because the Premier League has announced the officials that will be in charge of the next round of fixtures, with Anthony Taylor picked as the match referee for Arsenal against Man City. Taylor has refereed four matches of the Gunners’ this season, including a north London derby and a clash with Manchester United.

The clash at the Emirates Stadium will take place on Saturday, February 11 at 15:00 GMT. That means that it won’t be available to watch on TV in the United Kingdom, but it will be available in other countries.

Arsenal are five points ahead of Manchester City with a game at hand which means things can very quickly get a lot more comfortable as well as incredibly nervy. For Brentford, they are genuinely eyeing up a European campaign next season.

The Bees sit in seventh place which would get them into the Europa Conference League. They have a one-point lead over Fulham having played a game fewer and, after Arsenal’s loss to Everton, Thomas Frank’s side may smell blood here.

Apart from Pontus Jansson and Frank Onyenka who are being assessed, Brentford have got a clean bill of health and no suspensions to contend with. Arsenal could be without Gabriel Jesus, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith-Rowe and Mohamed Elneny for the game.
