Arsenal v Brentford Premier League match | Kick-off and team news
Arsenal will be hoping to banish the demons of their opening day loss to Brentford when they host the Bees at the Emirates on Saturday in one of two London derbies this weekend.
The Gunners’ season got off to the worst possible start when the newly-promoted side beat them 2-0 in August, but they are well placed in the hunt for fourth place now – four points behind Man United with three games less .
The hosts are expected to be well rested and eager to leave after a nine-day break from Premier League football, although Gabriel Martinelli’s suspension and Takehiro Tomiyasu’s fitness question marks will weaken them.
Recreating August’s famous victory looks like a tough task for the Bees, who have lost six of their last seven games.
They ended a long losing streak, however, with a goalless draw against Crystal Palace last weekend – a result all the more impressive given that talisman Ivan Toney was missing.

Arsenal vs Brentford Prediction
Brentford may have stopped the rot with a hard-fought draw against Crystal Palace and could have Toney back available, but Mikel Arteta’s side will be out for revenge.
They were hampered by the bees in the reverse game and will have had nine days of preparation to get motivated for this one.
The Gunners picked up a nervy win over Wolves but, especially if they can score early, it should be a much simpler affair.
Our prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Brentford (6/1 at bet365)
