Arsenal remain in the driving seat for the Premier League title, but Mikel Arteta will desperately want to put his side’s Everton defeat at the weekend to one side and bounce back emphatically against Brentford, whom they thrashed 3-0 back in September.

It was a concerning 1-0 loss for Arteta back on his old stamping ground, with Sean Dyche masterminding a debut win in the Goodison Park dugout. Fortunately for the Spaniard, his side were not made to rue for their Merseyside misgivings, with north London rivals Tottenham preventing Man City from closing the gap.

Pep Guardiola’s men once again fired a blank away to Tottenham, keeping the buffer between second and first to five points. Brentford are looking to keep pace with the Premier League’s heavy-hitters meanwhile, and Thomas Frank’s men are certainly still in the top-four race conversation.

The Bees are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run, stretching back to October, with Frank claiming the scalps of Man City, Liverpool and West Ham in that time. Having come up short to Arsenal quite emphatically back in September, the Danish tactician will have his sights set on revenge here — and maintaining his side’s unbeaten form.

Arsenal vs Brentford match stats

Brentford’s current unbeaten run (nine games) is actually the second-best active streak in the division, bettered only by Newcastle United (16). The west Londoners are also seeking to keep four consecutive clean sheets as a top-flight side for the first time in their history, last doing so in any division back in July 2020 (five).

Of course, they have been pretty nifty going forward as well. Ivan Toney has so far notched 13 goals, a tally bettered only by Erling Haaland (25) and Harry Kane (17). Such potency, though, comes at a price, with Toney also registering the second-most offsides this season (16), after Kai Havertz (21).

David Raya is expected to be busy between the sticks, but that’s not just because he’s facing the league leaders. The Spanish shot-stopper has actually made more saves than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season (91). The likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli will do well to breach him.

Arsenal were in the mood back in September. Just 13 months prior they fell to a humiliating opening-day defeat to Brentford in west London, but the complexion was poles apart earlier this campaign. Goals from William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira ultimately got the job done for Arteta’s side.
