It’s revenge time for Arsenal, as it welcomes Brentford to the Emirates Stadium this weekend, in what is a key clash for the hosts.
After winning 4 consecutive games towards the end of last year, Arsenal managed to pick up just 1 point from the first two games in the New Year, before beating the Wolves in its last outing. As a result, the team is currently in the 6th spot on the points table, 2 points behind West Ham, and 4 points behind the Red Devils, who occupy the 4th spot. However, the Gunners have played 3 games fewer than both of them and will be fancying their chances for a Champion’s League finish. Having been knocked out of the EFL Cup and the FA Cup, Mikel Arteta can now solely focus on the Premier League and aim for the best possible finish.
Brentford, which is playing in the Premier League for the first time in the team’s history, began its journey in the top flight with a stunning 2-0 win against Arsenal. The team’s initial performance can be called nothing short of stellar, as it managed to pick up points from 6 of its first 7 games. However, as the season progressed, the form started to dip gradually, and Brentford has now lost 5 out of its last 6 outings, collecting just 1 point.
That solitary point was earned thanks to a drab 0-0 draw in the last game against Crystal Palace. As a result, the club is now on the 14th spot with 24 points, 7 points clear of the relegation zone. While there is no imminent danger of slipping into the bottom 3, the team’s focus should now be moving towards the top half of the table.
Match prediction and betting tips for Arsenal F. C. vs Brentford F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Emirates Stadium, London, on 19th February 2022.
Ahead of this match, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Bernd Leno from Arsenal are doubtful due to fitness issues. Gabriel Martinelli received two cards within a span of a few seconds in the last game against the Wolves and will be serving his suspension. Alexandre Lacazette is expected to lead the charge, assisted by Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka.
Brentford is expected to start with Ivan Toney, Shandon Baptiste, and Frank Onyeka. Christian Eriksen, Mathias Jorgensen, Julian Jeanvier and Tarique Fosu-Henry are likely to miss out.
We expect the visitors to put up another challenging performance in this game, but given the way in which Arsenal has picked itself up from the initial losses, we expect them to pick up full 3 points.
Bet on Arsenal to win.
Arsenal has developed a sort of identity in the manner that it plays football and is pretty defense-oriented. There is nothing wrong with that but it does seem at the moment that its wins are all hard-earned. We just don't see it deviating away from that style of playing in this important game. Under 2.5 goals is more than likely.
