Arsenal travel to Brentford for a tricky outing as the Premier League resumes following the international break. Mikel Arteta’s men started the day one point off the lead but behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the table and will keep the pressure on the champions with a victory this evening.


Brentford, having another stellar season, have already been successful against some of the top sides this year by drawing against Tottenham and beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Thomas Frank will be targeting a spot in the top 10 and potentially a place in Europe following the Bees’ great start and to achieve that they’ll need to continue taking points away from the bigger clubs.


Aaron Ramsdale has another chance to impress his manager as he is confirmed to be starting in goal. David Raya, Arteta’s seeming first choice keeper, is unable to play against his parent club and a strong performance from Ramsdale will keep him in the thoughts of the Spaniard. The match is also Arteta’s 200th in charge in all competitions, and he has the most wins compared to all previous Arsenal managers to reach that milestone.

Mikel Arteta answers with two changes of his own, Ben White and Jorginho on to try and secure things.

Into stoppage time, of which there are four minutes. Brentford clung on for so long but now must be proactive, Saman Ghoddos off and Zanka on to add some extra height.

GOAL! Brentford 0-1 ARSENAL (Kai Havertz, 89 minutes)

There’s the breakthrough!


It’s a huge goal for Arsenal, and a huge goal for Kai Havertz! The German scores his biggest goal since his move across London, but this all about the silver platter delivery from Bukayo Saka. His cross arcs most invitingly, bending towards the far post and simply demanding to be converted. Havertz obliges, Arsenal lead!

Takehiro Tomiyasu is found by Leandro Trossard, but I’d wager the right back isn’t quite the man Arsenal want rampaging on to a pass 20 yards out. His side-footed effort is blocked.

Brentford 0-0 Arsenal, 87 minutes

Time is ticking ever nearer to the 90 minute mark, and I can’t remember too many stoppages in this second half that would neccessitate an extended extra period.

Brentford 0-0 Arsenal, 85 minutes

A weak finish! For once, Arsenal do cut Brentford open, three against two with Bukayo Saka giving the shooting opportunity to Eddie Nketiah. You’d expect rather more from the striker than that limp effort, though – Mark Flekken drops calmly to his left to gather with ease.

Brentford 0-0 Arsenal, 84 minutes

Brentford have been very, very organised and disciplined tonight, given the reshuffling required by the injuries. They push out as a red and white curtain to smother William Saliba’s space as he lines up a speculative volley that ends up (predictably) off target.

A bit of argy-bargy from Arsenal’s assembled targets results in a Brentford free kick.

Whistled wide! A flick off a Brentford foot and very nearly into the bottom corner Declan Rice’s crisp strike skims. Out for a corner.

Perhaps Mikel Arteta feels Arsenal are just starting to drift, gesturing for Kai Havertz to hurry along and then delivering some extended instructions to the German. Havertz enters with Gabriel Martinelli taken off.
