65th minute: Nketiah comes on for Jesus. Arsenal need some inspiration to find the breakthrough.

29th minute: Arsenal are struggling to get behind Brentford’s resilient defence at the minute. The Bees’ backline is holding strong.

22nd minute: Norgaard tries his luck from outside the box but like Trossard’s earlier, it rises way over the bar.

13th minute: The pressure has certainly gotten to Aaron Ramsdale! He messes around with the ball inside the six-yard line and stumbles over his own feet but Brentford can’t take advantage of the glorious opportunity! Mbeumo fires an effort goalward but Rice rescues his goalkeeper big time.

Brentford vs Arsenal lineups

Frank’s decision to switch to a five-man defence didn’t bring success at Anfield. If he is to go back to a four-man backline against the Gunners, that would create an opportunity for Neal Maupay. The striker, who became a target of criticism among Arsenal fans after the Bernd Leno incident in 2020, could lead the hosts’ attack.

Brentford starting lineup (4-3-3, left to right): Flekken — Ajer, Mee, Pinnock, Janelt — Norgaard, Yarmolyuk, Onyeka — Mbeumo, Wissa, Ghoddos.

Brentford subs (12): To be confirmed

Arteta won’t be able to use David Raya as his goalkeeper this weekend since the Brentford loanee is not allowed to play against his parent club. As a result, Aaron Ramsdale is set to make his first Premier League start in over two and a half months.

Gabriel Jesus surprised everyone with his speedy recovery from a hamstring injury, enabling him to join Brazil for their World Cup qualifiers. However, it would be surprising if he is immediately included in the Arsenal XI. As for skipper Martin Odegaard, Ben White, and Cedric Soares, their status will be assessed closer to the match. There is optimism that Odegaard might make his return in the west London derby.

Arsenal starting lineup (4-3-3, left to right): Ramsdale — Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Rice, Trossard, Odegaard — Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.
