Arsenal FC vs Brentford LIVE! Premier League match stream, latest score and goal updates today

Arsenal are looking to get back to winning ways this season and build on their excellent record at home when they host Brentford. Only Newcastle have anything to show for this season in the Premier League after a goalless draw last month.

Losses to Manchester City in the FA Cup and then Everton in the league have slowed the Gunners’ momentum somewhat. With a game in hand, they are still five points clear at the top, but Mikel Arteta’s side cannot afford another slip ahead of City’s trip to north London in midweek.

Brentford have beaten both Manchester and Liverpool earlier this season, although Thomas Frank believes this will be their toughest game yet. The Bees are unbeaten in the league since the World Cup and go into the weekend just seven points adrift of the top four.

Saka almost in!

16 mins: Nice little one-two with Odegaard frees Saka in the box as he drifts past Rico Henry, although the Brentford defender does well to stop his shot from a tight angle.

Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka managed to get in behind Brentford’s defense once or twice in the early stages. The visitors play back in fives to try and stop this and need to be a little less shallow flooded.


Brentford needs to show more

12 mins: Early days, of course, but Brentford have barely gotten out of their own half since Henry’s chance.

Odegaard plays like he’s in the mood today. He called for the ball a couple of times and put it in the feet of his teammates.



07 mins: Zinchenko puts one over the bar after Saka’s corner was cleared in his path.


Arsenal are lucky

05 mins: Rico Henry SO close to heading home after Toney’s brilliant cross.

Ivan Toney is Brentford’s talismanic goalscorer but he almost became a provider there when he crossed early for full-back Rico Henry, who shot over. Encouraging for Brentford that Toney has been given so much space in the bottom right…


Arsenal still have to be patient

03 mins: Brentford have switched to a back three as they try to frustrate the home side. Patience is key for Arsenal this afternoon.

Barely a minute later you realize how central Zinchenko is – he’s pretty much holding hands with Thomas Partey. Arsenal are clearly looking to control possession early on.


All about how Arsenal starts

01 min: Usually so strong at blowing teams away in the opening minutes it will be fascinating to see if this unchanged team can repay Arteta’s trust.
