Preview on Arsenal vs Brentford: Prediction, Team News and Lineups

Preview on Arsenal vs Brentford:  Arsenal will ascend to the top of the Premier League table with a victory over Brentford on Saturday evening.

On Monday night, the Gunners continued their impressive streak in domestic competitions, securing their seventh consecutive win by decisively defeating Sheffield United 6-0, after leading 5-0 at halftime.

This formidable streak has catapulted them back into championship contention, and they are set to capitalize on the upcoming match between Liverpool and Manchester City.

Arsenal is just two points behind Liverpool, who currently lead the league.

Last season, Brentford managed a contentious draw at Emirates Stadium and gave Mikel Arteta’s team a tough challenge in their last encounter.

However, Brentford is currently experiencing a challenging phase, going four games without a win and sitting only six points above the relegation zone.

Arsenal fans will be hoping to avoid any VAR-related drama in the upcoming Saturday evening match, exceptionally since Paul Tierney, who made a controversial decision in Liverpool’s favor against Nottingham Forest last weekend, will be the VAR official at Stockley Park for the Arsenal match.

Arsenal Team News

Heading into Saturday’s match, the manager confirmed that the team’s injury situation remains unchanged.

Despite being substituted due to injury and illness during Monday’s 6-0 victory, Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are both anticipated to be ready to play.

Thomas Partey has returned to action for the first time since October; however, Jorginho is expected to keep his spot in the lineup.

Jurrien Timber is back in training with Arsenal but is not expected to make a comeback for a few more weeks. Additionally, Brentford’s David Raya, on loan from Arsenal, will not be qualified to play against his parent club.

Team News for Brentford:

Ben Mee has recently joined Brentford’s injury roster after sustaining a foot fracture during the team’s 4-2 loss to West Ham last month.

Thomas Frank will also have to manage without Bryan Mbeumo (ankle), Kevin Schade (groin), Aaron Hickey (hamstring), Ethan Pinnock (ankle), Rico Henry (knee), and Josh Dasilva (knee) for this weekend’s game.

It is expected that Yoane Wissa will be in the starting lineup alongside Ivan Toney, a transfer target for Arsenal.

Predicted Lineups for Arsenal vs Brentford:

Arsenal: Ramsdale in goal; defence comprises White, Saliba, Gabriel, and Kiwior; midfield trio of Rice, Jorginho, and Odegaard; and the forward line includes Saka, Havertz, and Martinelli.

Brentford: Flekken as goalkeeper; defensive lineup with Zanka, Ajer, and Collins; Roerslev in wing-back position; midfield consists of Jensen, Norgaard, and Janelt; Reguilon supporting; and Wissa partnering Toney upfront.

Score Prediction for Arsenal vs Brentford:

Brentford faces difficulties, which becomes evident when considering its extensive injury list and poor performance metrics.

The Bees have been struggling with counter-attacks, not making the most of set-pieces, lacking the presence of David Raya, and generally have been more vulnerable than in previous seasons. Maybe Bryan Mbeumo was a key factor after all?

Given these circumstances, it’s difficult to imagine a Brentford team, low on morale and weaker in defensive capabilities, managing to hold back Arsenal on Saturday.

On the other hand, Arsenal is on a winning streak, and everything they attempt succeeds.

Predicted Outcome: Arsenal 3, Brentford 0
