Arsenal clash with Brentford on Sunday afternoon as they travel to Gtech Community Stadium to clinch all three points. The Gunners come into the match on the back of a 2-1 victory over Zurich in the Europa Conference League while the Bees recorded an emphatic 5-2 win over Leeds United in their last game.
Arsenal Vs Brentford: Talking Tactics
Mikel Arteta will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation as Gabriel Jesus leads the charge in the away encounter while Gabriel Martinelli pairs up with Bukayo Saka to provide support from the wide areas.
Thomas Frank would make use of the 4-3-3 formation with Ivan Toney featuring in the number nine position to fancy his chances of finding the back of the net whereas David Raya operates in between the sticks hoping to put up a strong performance.
The Gunners have several players in the treatment room with Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny being long-term absentees. Cedric Soares and Emile Smith Rowe are also doubtful with the latter having a groin problem and the former picking up a knock. Furthermore, Oleksandr Zinchenko will remain doubtful as he has picked up a fresh muscular problem.
Arsenal Predicted XI
Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus
As for the hosts, Christian Norgaard and Ethan Pinnock remain sidelined due to injuries but the rest of the team is fully fit and available for selection. Sergi Canos could be up for selection as well after making a recovery and returning to training.
Brentford Predicted XI
Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Mee, Henry; Jensen, Janelt, Dasilva; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa
